Re-decorating: living room décor inspiration

~This post was sponsored by The HighBoy.~

As we put the final touches on the bedroom re-do, I’ve started looking for some living room décor inspiration. We spend most of our time in there, so I’m really excited about transforming it. The last of my roommates moved out a few years ago, and long gone are my student days, so it’s time for my living space to reflect that.



As I try to figure out how to grow-up my living room, I’ve been spending time browsing through The Mixing vintage and antique finds in with thriftier, more generic pieces (Hi Ikea!) can help elevate the space. The HighBoy is a fantastic online marketplace for antiques, fine art and a huge selection of furniture. My favourite feature is that you can search the site by style from French Country to Victorian to Mid-Century to whatever pulls at your home décor heart strings. The Weekly, The HighBoy’s editorial journal has gorgeous interiors and some great home style tips.



For the living room, new pieces I’m keeping my eyes out for include an accent chair, narrow console table, lamps, coffee/end tables and a new rug. With those items in mind, I put together an inspiration board with my fav finds from The HighBoy to go along with a couple of our existing pieces (the Ikea couch and gold-framed mirror).

Do you like old or new or a mix of the two? What’s your living room style?


  1. I love the pics of your updates to your room in the last post. It’s look so bright and airy!

    I have yet to do any real decorating because we are renting but I’m really looking forward to it when we buy a house in the next couple of years. I’ll be sure to reference HighBoy when I do. It sounds like they have some great unique items!

    • Thanks! Yeah, we’re just in a rental, too, but are making some updates since we’ve decided we’re stuck here for a while.
