Hello friends!!! I am so excited about today’s post! If you have been following us from the start than you know that we are very budget-conscious here at Pretty Providence. We pride ourselves on being smart financially and putting first things first. Well, I have been married for almost ten years, and up until now our main living area was made up completely of hand me downs and thrift store finds. Don’t get me wrong, you can find great pieces at a thrift store, but these weren’t that. The whole space was born out of necessity and not love. And that is fine! There is a time and a place for everything and I am proud of myself for keeping all that crap for so long! Haha.

It has been a bucket list item of mine for years to design my own dream living room from the ground up and make it a reality! Well, it’s finally reality guys and I am so in love with this cozy modern living room space! Plus, the best part is the entire room start to finish cost less than $5,000! That’s for great quality, long lasting pieces, too! You ready for the tour?
The gorgeous distressed medallion rug was the next piece that I knew I wanted, so the whole vibe was created around those two items! While I wanted the main staples to be very neutral (the couches, and coffee table) I like to add some color and variety through rugs and accessories! Then if in a few years I am sick of the blue, switching out a rug and some pillows is easy and inexpensive! For now though I am loving them!
Here’s a side view of the Sven! The plant and the Vivan curtains are both Ikea finds!
Here is a side view of the whole space together. The “TV stand” is just a Besta storage combination from IKEA, which is tons cheaper if you buy it in the store, btw!
I mentioned before how I wanted the room to not only be pretty, but functional as well. I don’t know if it’s just my family but we are kinda obsessed with throw blankets… like, everyone must have their own at all times! Haha. Also, I forgot to mention one of my favorite parts about the Sven Sofa is the single, bench seat cushion! No slipping in between the cracks! For people or crumbs… #momlife.
Back detailing on the Sven…
FYI, for those of you who are interested, there is a “shop this post” table at the bottom of the post with all the links in once place for your convenience!
So, what do you think?! What is your favorite piece in the room?
