An Eclectic LA Living Room


  • Texture. I love the softness of the room. Notice the woven shades, the woven armchairs, and the cozy blanket.
  • Live plants. Plants add so much life to a room. The fern, palm and fresh flowers really add freshness to the space.
  • Furniture placement. Many people have a similiar room to this one, including me. This is a great way to arrange seating to encourage conversation.  All you need is a sofa/loveseat and 2 armchairs.


  • Plants. Even if you don't have a green thumb, adding low maintenance plants to a room really adds life to a room, literally. Go to a nursery and tell them what the light is in your space and they can help you.  There are many low maintenance house plants available.
  • Furniture placement. Is your furniture pushed up against the wall? Bring them into the room to create coziness and conversation areas.
  • Texture. Do you have any natural elements in your room? Baskets are a great way to add texture and they can do double duty as storage.

This room is a prime example of looking at a room and taking inspiration from it, even if it's not your own personal style. Personally, I wouldn't put a stuffed goose on my mantel, BUT... I could copy that same arrangement with a mirror plant and another large focal point.
