#HomeByOakley | Family Room Inspiration

Family room? Living room? Great room? Whatever you call this space, gray is the name of the game. I might be going overboard with the neutrals - if that's even a thing - but I'm so ready to have some new spaces to fill up and make all pretty. First up, our main living space! I want it to be comfy and cozy and home-y. Like you can come in and plop down on the sofa, put your feet up and relax.

I know we'll be able to use a lot of our existing decor items and things like that once we get into the new house but we want to purchase a few new items, too, within reason. We did go ahead and buy a couch last weekend and scheduled it to be delivered on moving day, though!

I've had fun looking for different things online. We are on quite the budget so everything I've picked out comes from Nebraska Furniture Mart, Target, Amazon and other stores that are easy on the pocketbook. We won't be getting everything all at once but I still like to have an idea of what I want the room to look like.

Couch // Rug // Pillow Covers // Coffee Table // Accent Chair // Ottoman // Wood + Metal End Table // Throw // Lamp // Recliner // Wood + Iron End Table

The couch we ended up getting is a little more traditional in style (like this one) and in a lighter caramel color. It's super comfy but I'm a little nervous about the color. We have 30 days from delivery to decide if we like it. If not, we'll probably switch it out for the one in the picture above. I also a few other area rugs that could work. You can't beat the prices on this one and this one. More grays, of course.

Now, if I can pull of this look with limited funds, I'll be all set! Stay tuned for the actual reveal once we're moved in and I have my act together!


  1. Love all of this!! I would love to redo our living room to match this style, but unfortunately everything that came from our old house was in perfect shape and we just couldn't buy all things new. I can't wait to see how your living room (and whole house) turns out!!

  2. Fun! You'll get a 'feel' for what you want after you move in too. Helps to be in the space a while but I know whatever you pick will be gorgeous! You have a good eye for decor.
