HOME ROOM: Freshening the Living Room

Mohawk Carpet Living Room Decor via homework (15)I have a bad case of the organizing and freshening bug. I’ve been moving things around, decluttering and I’m eager to start on some home d├ęcor projects. I have loads of ideas but first on my list was our living room. I was lucky enough to receive a new SmartStrand Forever Clean bound carpet from Mohawk and it was just the inspiration I needed to do some additional freshening to the room.

Right now, it’s not in the budget so this new Mohawk carpet is the perfect way to lighten and brighten the room. I chose the pattern Willow Spirit and the color is Birch Bark.

Even though I call this room our living room, it doubles as our family room so this room takes a beating (you know, messy husband, teenage son and all his friends and of course, the spoiled dog.) The SmartStrand Forever Clean carpet features Nanoloc spill-protection technology for quick and easy spill cleanup. Spills and stains clean up with water or mild detergent.Hooray!

The moss sofa set has served us well and is very forgiving. So, in addition to the new carpet, I added some new pillows sticking with the light blue accent color. The pillow on the left is a plain white pillow covered in an infinity gauze scarf. This is a quick and inexpensive way to add accent color to your room.
