Designer Heather Hogan Roberts likes using succulents because they are resilient plants that require little maintenance. The homeowner already had this arrangement in another room, so Roberts made it a key item in her coffee table makeover. The living room already had the sphere fixture, but the Ivy and Vine design team spent $42 on a canvas and paint to make the artwork.
The living room was updated with fresh wall paint in sage green and new hardwood flooring. The ceiling-height corner window grouping, which had given the home a dated look, now becomes a key feature with new cedar wrap that gives it a more natural and refined look.
Take a cheap white bowl (this one cost $2 at a Goodwill thrift shop) and add interest by filing it with a unique accessory: pink beads. Then don't forget mirrors, big or small, when decorating a living space. Designer Heather Hogan Roberts of Ivy and Vine used a mirrored tray underneath. Beyond the table, the woven basket holding blankets on the hearth used to be hidden behind a chair.
To save money, the coffee table remained but designer Heather Hogan Roberts moved succulents from another room to add greenery. Then she surrounded the plant with thrifted accessories and borrowed beads from the homeowner's jewelry box as accessories.
This living room features a vase of beautiful white hydrangeas arranged atop a wooden coffee table. A gray vase and other additional decorative items, like books and seashells, are positioned nearby to finish the look. The nearby neutral sofa boasts colorful blue and green throw pillows.
Metallics add a modern touch to a room without breaking your budget. For table decor under $100, Parker Kennedy Living used a sea urchin from Target and a lacquer green and gold box from C Wonder. They didn't have to buy new books, since the homeowner already owned those, as well as the table.
Bright natural lighting bounces off the light white and neutral surfaces in this beautiful Asian living room. A decorative fireplace surround adds some softness to the clean lines of the design. Textural ribs on the coffee table are a beautiful contrast to the light walls and rug. A large mounted plate, glass statue case and red trunk add Asian flair to the space.
Atlanta designer Heather Hogan Roberts purchased discount remnant fabric and trim to spend $120 on the pillows she made for the living room makeover. The white faux fur throw cost $24.99. Working with a $500 budget, she decided to keep the circular mirror in the same spot because it fills out the wall.
A thick blue cushion and line of throw pillows soften this wood bench for a comfortable outdoor sitting space. Ceramic stands create a decorative coffee table set up, and a metal end table adds a rougher texture to the serene design. Landscape lighting bounces off the glass retaining wall for a glowing effect.
A skylight showers bright, natural light over this transitional living room. A white sofa and chairs contribute to the bright feel of the room. A natural wood coffee table brings a beautiful texture and warmth between the furniture. A decorative tile fireplace surround is framed with a white mantel and topped with vases and plants for decor.
