Spring living room decorating has been updated with a casually elegant coastal look. I’m hoping that it inspires you to use some of these simple ideas in your home. Plus I have a really nice giveaway that you can enter to win here on the blog and on Instagram, so double the chances to win $650 in beautiful merchandise shown here!This post is sponsored by several brand partners. All thoughts and photography are honest and my own and are not influenced by my sponsors.

The before…and although the change isn’t dramatic, it shows what you can accomplish by moving things around. Yes, there are some new pieces that I’ll talk about in a minute, but doing a shuffle dance with the sofa and chairs always makes this room fresh!
Ta daa…the after! I think that most obvious is the new chandelier and what you don’t see is that it replaced a ceiling fan. This room is the first room that you see when you come into our home, and it’s down one step on the right. It’s been a long battle of the sexes to have the ceiling fan taken down, but my husband finally agreed that it really didn’t serve much purpose. We do need the fans in all of the bedrooms, but not in here. We needed more lighting though, and the chandelier in front of the mirror did nothing for us. I’m a girl who likes casual elegance and a bit of glitz, and this chandelier is very similar to the one that we used in the master bathroom renovation. You can see more of in IN THIS POST, but this one is much grander in scale.
Isn’t she a beauty?!!! Above you can see “her” turned on and below is how she looks off. My sponsor 1StopLighting has a huge selection of beautiful lighting and will ship anything straight to your door. This one is by Crystorama and you’ll find it HERE in a couple of different finishes. Mine is the vibrant bronze, but I did touch it up a bit with some gold rub-n-buff to better match my dining room fixture that is an old French piece.
I love mixing old and new and for my spring living room decorating I’m keeping it pale with some traditional coastal colors of blue and white. Swapping out rugs makes the largest impact that seasonal decorating can bring, and I just LOVE (with a capital L!) this rug from sponsor RUGS AMERICA. You’ll have a chance to win a rug of your own in this giveaway. I’m often asked about living with white and it’s easy because the sofa and my French barrel chairs have removable cushion covers that toss in the wash. I’d rather live with white, because you can SEE the dirt…making it easy to clean.
Speaking of white…this French Linen Bolster Pillow with ruffles is so great to curl up with! You will find it at Hallstrom Home who is sponsoring as well in the giveaway below! I love how this pillow can go either on the sofa in my modern French country style living room or the bedroom.
I’m always happy to share small business ladies and my friend Kristi at Jolie Marche sent me these pillows. You’ll have a chance to win some as well and for now…check out her website HERE.
And can we talk about how flowers make a room and your home come alive? Peonies are my favorite flower and these Coral Charm peonies and hot pink are lush and full and smell amazing! They can really be difficult to find in local groceries and when you do they aren’t necessary the best quality. My sponsor PETAL DRIVEN provided these and I’d love for you to take a look at their website. They have quality blooms, petal kits and excellent pricing and they ship right to your door. You’ll have a chance to win generous credit to Petal Driven at the end of this post!
Gorgeous peonies from Petaldriven in a French market basket…these are among the flowers that they carry.
