My Living Room Makeover Reveal!

Happy Friday! I’m so excited to finally reveal our full living room makeover in our new Laguna Beach apartment!

Chris and I both worked pretty hard on making this a stylish and functional space to hang out in and we were lucky to be able to work with some amazing vendors like Article, Minted and Lulu & Georgia. Ultimately we wanted the space to feel light and bright, with pops of color, natural textures and very “us”. Scattered throughout the room are many of the shells we’ve collected since moving to California, favorite books and photos, pieces passed on by various family members and objects that hold a special place in our hearts. Scroll down to see a few before pictures and a lot of after photos and head over to Glitter Guide to see my full breakdown of the room and design process. I hope you enjoy seeing this new space where I foresee my family spending most of our time (when we aren’t at the beach). I also hope it has given you some inspiration for your own space.

We will be doing more updates on our apartment throughout the coming months so make sure to stay updated on Instagram and the tag #littlebeachcottage.

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading today! A big thanks to Article, Minted and Lulu & Georgia for partnering with me to help make this such a welcoming and happy space!
