New Home: Creating a Living Room Mood Board

Sharing is caring!

We are a little under two months from closing on our new home! While we originally wanted to be able to move before school started, this extra time has allowed us to research all the best deals and pick designs that we truly love without having to settle. My husband (much to my dismay LOL) is very hands on in the design process, so I created a living room mood board to “sell” him on my ideas. Whether your partner is the same or not, this is a great way to plan your space and research items you love for the look you want!

New Home: Creating a Living Room Mood Board

Basics: Furniture

Our goal is to start with the basics which to us is a comfortable couch that will fit our family. I saw this sectional from Joybird and fell in love. At first my husband wasn’t entirely thrilled with the idea of having a pink couch, but once I showed him how I’d style it he actually seemed to like it. Our family room will be an extension of the kitchen so I wanted the colors to flow. The blush/pink color of the sectional will tie in nicely with the copper finishings and hardware I have planned for the kitchen design. 

Using the app “magicplan” gave us a rough estimate of how to place the furniture and if it would all fit. I would ideally like to incorporate a console table behind the couch, 2 additional armchairs for extra seating and this gorgeous white marble top gold grid coffee table. We currently have this in the end table design. It really adds a fun and unique aspect to the space.


My style can be best described as modern farmhouse. I’ve always loved the clean lines found in modern home decor, but the farmhouse style has grown on me these past couple years, especially since it’s a happy medium of both my style and my husband’s preferred style. 

Adding white and gray throw blankets and pillows softens the color of the sectional just enough to where my husband doesn’t feel too girly sitting there watching sports.

We currently own this area rug and I wanted to add in a little more texture by using this one in a layered look.
