Our living room is one of the most frequently used rooms in our home.  I was looking for a small mid winter update, and what better way to update your home than with some new cushions.   Today I have some styling and decor ideas to give you a fresh mid winter makeover for your living space.

Our living room is where we spend time together as a family, from watching movies by the fire to just chatting and catching up on what’s happened in our week.

Add your favourite decorative objects to your coffee table, such as a favourite shell or place your shell collection in a bowl.  Edit your room and keep clutter to a minimum.  Don’t forget to put other pieces you no longer need in your room into storage.  I have to keep remembering to do this, otherwise I collect too many beautiful pieces.

I have used tones of blue on my linen sofa and throughout my home.  Touches of green have been added to my living space with a faux boxed hedge plant.  Here are a few suggestions for your midwinter living room update from Pottery Barn.
