19 Budget Living Room Makeovers…For Hometalk!

I am taking break from our AH-MAZ-ING trip to Bermuda - more on that later! - to share with you some awesome ideas for living room makeovers on a budget. Our living room was the first room I decorated when we moved back into our house last December (see post on our living room here). It was so much fun to put together and I did NOT spend a lot of money. Yes there are some really expensive pieces in the space that I inherited from family (piano, artwork, etc.) but I was able to finish the room with gorgeous Kravet fabric drapes that I got on a discount fabric site and my mom sewed, a loveseat I got from Wayfair, a bench we picked up at HomeGoods, a table and rug from Overstock and some accessories from West Elm. The end result is a high-end looking space that didn't break the bank. And guess what? I am apparently not alone!

Have you heard of Hometalk? It is the largest home and garden social network on the web and millions of people use it to share their projects or to ask questions of each other. For those of you like me that want to see what others are creating, it is a dream come true. So when Hometalk asked me to curate a clip board on living room makeovers, I was thrilled to do it!  Check out these 19 beautiful spaces I found and click on the picture to learn more about each project.
Love them? I do! So many different styles and creative ideas. From the uber modern and fun faux deer antlers, to the gorgeous dark grey room, to the garage that is now a cozy and beautiful space complete with fireplace. I selected these spaces because they combined classic elegance with a sense of humor. Almost every room I picked had some traditional pieces with pops of color or fun decorative elements like the Union Jack throw pillow or the eclectic wall of artwork. And there are just a few…click on the picture to see all 19.

People always ask me how I come up with design ideas and I always tell them that I am inspired by others whether "real" designers or those of us just doing it on the "side". I am constantly finding inspiration from the creativity of fellow decorators. So check out these beauties and then become addicted to Hometalk like I am.  And now I must get back to paradise. And just in case you think I may be exaggerating…here's where we are right now. #HeavenOnEarth
