Getting the Layered Look

Today is the second in a series of posts.  We’re going through the steps I took to create the warm, relaxed look we achieved in Melissa’s living room.

 Restoration Sofa

To begin, we had two major statement pieces from her previous home, a Restoration Hardware leather sofa and trunk coffee table.


One of the goals was to brighten the space, so I started with an on trend chevron rug from Overstock which anchors the space.

Alexa Chevron Blue RugFrom there I added throw pillows in soft blues and subtle greys, with a few pops of yellow from both West Elm and Pottery Barn.


When it comes to layering a space, throws are the perfect accessory to add style and comfort and they can be found at any price point, like this one we found at World Market.


Lighting is one of the most important elements in any space, so we’ll cover lighting and accessorizing a room in the next post which is how we rounded out the space.
