Bohemian Chic Living Room Reveal with Markley Design | lovelolablog.comBohemian Chic Living Room Reveal with Markley Design | lovelolablog.comYou guys, it’s here! One Room Challenge reveal day!! I am so excited to share with you the space I curated with Markley Design. Hayden was exactly what I needed to get my butt into gear, and make this room happen. We’ve been living in a half finished room (more like 1/4 finished) for three years now, and it feels amazing to finally have it completed!!! I honestly feel like this room is an extension of me, and it makes me so happy to come home to it. My goals for this room were to create a space that was inviting and cozy, while also being bright and full of color, which I definitely feel like we were able to achieve!

Did I go overload with posting pictures? Maybe. Am I sorry? Not at all. Click ‘continue reading’ to see the full reveal, as well as all the products linked at the end!

Living Room Progress: Minted Art

May 4, 2017

Filed Under : Interiors

Minted Art | Love Lola

You guys. I am geeking out over how our living room is coming together. But man, oh man, has it been a process. I don’t know about you, but I have major design OCD. (Did I say major!?) I rethink things once, rethink them twice, then rethink them again. Which is exactly what I did when deciding on a piece of art to hang above the couch. The wall behind the couch in our living room flows straight into the kitchen, so it was important for me for everything to stay cohesive. I originally thought about doing a gallery wall here, but the wall is so big and just the thought of putting together a gallery wall stressed me out. (so much work, right???).

I considered a neutral macrame piece, but in the end decided that we really needed the color from an art print. The only trick was that our rug has so much pattern and color, that we didn’t want the art to clash. Since our rug has shades of mauve, gray, and pink, what the room was really lacking was blue. Once we added the minty blue couch, I felt like I needed some deeper shades of blue to really anchor the room. But once again, we didn’t want the art to clash with the rug, and we didn’t want it to take too much attention away from our other bold statement pieces – the rug, our fiddle leaf fig, and our couch.

I envisioned a peace that whispered a gentle hello when you walked in. A piece that filled the room with soothing background noise, but wasn’t so loud you couldn’t think. I searched and searched on Minted using their filter feature to browse through all of their blue, pink and abstract prints. I saved all of the prints that really spoke to me under “my favorites” in Minted and then looked through them with Hayden. We finally landed on this abstract and I couldn’t be more pleased. It is everything I dreamed of and more. It’s the perfect combination of shades of blue and pink, and complements the rug and couch perfectly (I think!). It is so gentle up there on the wall and is killing me softly (in the best way!).

After the whole art shebang, I am officially obsessed with Minted and am still constantly adding art pieces to my favorites folder, as I dream of decorating more spaces in our home. Since there are so many pieces I love, I’ve linked some of my other favorites below!

One Room Challenge Week Four: Couch Dreams Coming True

April 27, 2017

Filed Under : Interiors

ORC week 4

Last week I shared with you our design board for the living room, featuring a blue couch I was very hopeful of finding. This week I’m sharing with you the couch of my freaking dreams.

If you saw my instagram stories, you know getting this couch was no simple feat. I saw online that this couch was at Final Cut, and it was exactly what I had been envisioning in my head. I was determined to make it mine, and began scheming how to get myself, a truck, trailer, and baby all down to Augusta, GA to bring this bad boy home. Since I am home a few days a week, I wanted to utilize my time so I was ready to pack up and go.

The problem was that neither of our cars have a hitch, so I had to hunt down a car to borrow. I’d also have to rent a trailer, which I had never driven before. But I’ve always been convinced, when there’s a will there’s a way.

Well, there wasn’t a way… Scofield (and my mom, and his mom, and my dad, and his dad) felt very poorly about me loading up such precious cargo (the baby, not the couch ;) by myself with a trailer and windy roads. I couldn’t blame them. So we were able to work it out to where Scofield and I would drive down on his day off and we crossed our fingers the couch would still be available.

When we got to Final Cut the couch had a piece of paper on it that said, “Reserved. Customer still shopping.” Nooooo. I was heartbroken. But not ready to give up yet. We looked around for other similar minty blue couches, and found a couple, but I felt like I would be settling. The store was closing in less than an hour, so Scofield had the bright idea of waiting it out. We hadn’t seen anyone hanging out around the couch, so we thought maybe they wouldn’t show to pick it up. And BINGO! Closing time rolled around and said couch claimers were nowhere to be found. The couch was ours!! So we loaded her up and brought her to her forever home.

She is everything I had dreamed of and more, and adds so much to our living room. I keep finding myself thinking, “what was life before you.” I love her.

Hayden and I have a lot on the to do list this week, including installing a light fixture, picking out lamps, attempting a DIY project, and giving our fireplace a little refresh. Be sure to check back next Thursday to see more of our progress, and follow along with the other ORC participants, here!

One Room Challenge: Week Two!

April 13, 2017

Filed Under : Interiors

Here we are at week two! The One Room Challenge always seems to fly by, and this week was no different. I thought I would share some inspiration photos of living rooms I love, that give off the same vibe I am going for. Hayden and I share a secret pinterest board and will be pinning back and forth to share ideas and put a picture to our words. This is so helpful when working with a designer to really allow them to get a ‘feel’ for what you love!

One thing that’s clear is that I love the midcentury modern look. My only qualm with it all along has been that it’s been too cold, so I really want to warm up the space with with warm colors – like a soft pink and shades of blue – and bohemian accents. Like I mentioned earlier, it is so easy for me to go all over the design spectrum, so really trying to keep my style on track. Finding inspiration photos has been so helpful for that!

I’m meeting up with my gal Hayden this week to talk through some more design plans and DIY projects, our coffee table is on it’s way to us, and I need to decide on furniture. Can’t wait to share more peeks at the space!
