Blogger Stylin' Home Tour | Our TN Living Room

I'm so happy to be participating in the Blogger Stylin' Home Tour blog hop! Today I'm sharing my favorite room in our Tennessee rental (honestly, it's the only one finished in TN!) But I really do LOVE it because it's bright, happy and full of pattern. If you're stopping over from Beneath my Heart, welcome!! So glad that you're here!

Come on in! 

Entering through the kitchen, there's a sofa table, x base ottomans, and yellow lamps. The sofa table base is from Holly & Martin. The other week, I found a few pieces of marble on Craigslist, one piece was the exact width and just 4" short (it's like it was meant to be!!), so I swapped out the top and just added two strips of painted wood on the ends. It looks like it was always like that! 

The aluminum M was found at a local vintage shop.

Love the yellow lamps paired with the coral ottomans!

We recently added a fabric panel behind the T.V. Referencing one of my favorite prints, I drew the pattern in Photoshop, and got it printed through Spoonflower.

We recently finished a TV stand - a modified Ikea Expedit (we've been planning to do it for a while .. before the Expedit was discontinued! Tutorial on Infarrantly Creative).

Love the size, added durability with plywood and the height of the TV is perfect! It also covers all the outlets (about 4) behind the TV, we just have internet, so one outlet is all we need!

The diving helmet was an ice bucket found at the thrift store. It's the perfect planter for succulents!

When I picked up the marble pieces, the seller was also selling a few other things. I can't believe this mother of pearl inlay table was only $5!

The ceiling fan isn't my favorite, but it will do for our time here! (We're currently building a custom light for our Maryland living room!) 

I hope you enjoyed the tour! Fabric panel wall tutorial tomorrow!!
