Living Room Mood Board + Takeaway Design Tips

Get inspired for your home with this summer living room mood board!

Mondays aren’t always the most inspiring day of the week and not a day we look forward to after a fun weekend, but I’m trying to change that with our Monday Mood Boards! I hope our mood boards can be an inspiration to you and your home.

Living Room Mood Board + Takeaway Design Tips

Takeaway Tips to Bring this Look to Your Own Home:

The mood of this living room makes me feel so calm and serene. I love the fresh, comfortable and effortlessly beautiful vibe!

Here are some style take away tips from this mood board:

The key pieces in this room are timeless. They will stand the test of time (yet still look so current for today!)–the sofa, spindle side table, roll arm leather accent chair, and transitional style rug.

This space has an organic feeling that comes from the natural colors and materials, the botanical artwork, and the woven textures in the tray, scalloped frame, and rattan lampshade on the floor lamp.

A substantially sized table lamp makes a statement. The black creates a welcome contrast to the light sofa (which is also repeated in the botanical art!).

The (faux) leather armchair adds a rich warm texture to the room which always makes a room cozier.

The ticking striped ottoman serves as a charming foot rest or coffee table (the woven tray would be great on top for a more solid surface!), and would also be versatile to use as extra seating when needed.

Books are a decorating accessory I couldn’t live without. This is a beautiful coffee table book (and is also full of great stories, I’ve been reading it lately and enjoying it!).

Subtle shades of blue are repeated and pulled together with the ottoman, rug, ginger jar, and the color of the walls.

Plants (real or even artificial like this faux fiddle tree!) always bring a room to life. A taller plant can fill a corner and add visual height. If you ever have a wall or corner that feels empty, try a tall plant! Check out these inspiration rooms with plants and greenery here.

Mood board source links are below. You can use all of the elements in this mood board to recreate the whole look or choose a favorite and incorporate it into your own sense of style. Save this to your Pinterest boards for future inspiration!
