Living Room Makeover
Not sure if you have checked out Anthropologie lately but if you haven’t you should!
Amber Lewis now has a collection with them and I LOVE so many of the pieces.
In this design, there is a mix from her collection plus other goodies from the Anthropologie.
I have listened to Amber on several occasions and two things she said stood out for me in my life journey.
The first piece of advice is:
Never compare your beginning to someone else’s middle.Amber Lewis
This is the BEST advice because it is so hard to not compare yourself to someone who is where you want to be.
The secret is to have patience.
Easier said than done I know but it is soooo important to remember.
I have to remind myself daily that a baby step every day is better than none at all.
The second piece of wisdom is:
Let me failAmber lewis
She made that second statement to her family when they were questioning her journey.
She believed in herself and would not listen to the Nay-Sayers.
Clearly, she knew what she was doing because look at her now.
She is a freaking ROCK STAR and a true inspiration for me!
So after forty-six years of life, I have FINALLY discovered that people can’t give an opinion on what they don’t know.
So if I just keep my head down and do the work there is no noise.
That was an epiphany moment.
SO good right?!
Always remember what other people think of you is NONE of your business!
Just mind your own business, keep your mouth shut, and work harder than anyone else.
And that my friends are the life lessons I finally live by.
I got sidetracked but now back to the reason you are here!
This post is all about an Anthropologie Living Room makeover.

Living Room Makeover Tips To Get Started
Now that you have the design for your living room makeover what’s next?
Let me tell you!
The first step in the design process should be to create a floor plan.
Free Measure Your Room Download
This is the road map for your design and lets you see what will actually fit in your space.
Once you know what you are looking for you can start to source the products.
It is important to only gather up to three Pinterest images of the overall look and feel you are after.
Anything more will be overwhelming because you will be less focused.
While you may not be ready for a complete living room makeover you can still update a few pieces.
I like to start with the art, rug, or pillows because it helps to create the color palette.
This is how I like to start any design off.
Once the overall theme and color palette is established it’s easy to fill in the rest of the pieces.
The design process should be a fun experience.
If you focus on one space at a time with a plan it will be!
That’s it for this inspiring living room makeover concept.
I hope it helps you get started in your design journey.
Have an awesome day full of Unicorns and Rainbows.
