One of the first things people say when they come into our house is, ‘why do you have so many living rooms’? The answer is, we have one formal living room (formal-ish), a sun room for morning coffee and puppy snuggles, and then Anel’s man cave in the furnished basement which has turned into the place where we watch movies or TV together because it’s just so cozy.
Although this space isn’t actually all that formal, it is compared to the the rest of the house. Growing up, we had a formal living room where my parents entertained and us kids rarely entered. There’s something about the idea of a space like that, that makes me feel grown up. The next step is to finally host a wine night for my girlfriends in a few weeks.
I wanted the formal living room decor in this room to feel coastal yet comfortable, formal yet cozy, and with the help of Shelby at The Havenly, I think we accomplished exactly that with the formal living room decor and layout!
I knew that I had to have this rug from Lulu & Georgia and Shelby planned around that perfectly. We have a matching rug in the other half of this room (not pictured) under our dining room table. It’s the best rug I own hands down because it’s jute, my favorite, but it’s also super soft on the feet. Boots loves to lay on it and I love walking around with bare feet and feeling softness instead of scratchiness.
So take a tour of the space below and let me know what you think! I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Scroll down for all product details.
