Home design inspiration: Going glam, with a Gwen Stefani edge

It’s not often that clients cite Gwen Stefani as inspiration for their decor. It was certainly the first time Lisa Buyuk had heard the request. “She said she wanted to embrace her ‘inner Gwen Stefani,’” the Boston-based designer says of her client, who works in finance and lives in the South End. “She told me, ‘I have the brain of a nerd, but the heart and style of a wannabe glam punk.’” Buyuk’s response was to create a dynamic space filled with quirky, irreverent things. Fuchsia and gold accents reflect the owner’s edgy sensibility and optimistic attitude. “She is consistently a happy human being,” Buyuk says. “The room radiates her point of view on life.”

How to plan and decorate your living room

A good starting point is to think about how many people you need to fit in your living room on a regular basis. This will help you to choose the right living room furniture.

What should I put in my living room?

A large family will need a sizeable sofa and a couple of armchairs at least to make sure everyone has somewhere comfortable to sit.

If space is tight, beanbags and poufs are a smart way to sneak in extra seating, and can be stowed away easily at times when there are fewer people in the house.

If you like to entertain in your living room, it’s a good idea to have a few lightweight side chairs that can be moved into more sociable arrangements when people come to visit. Small side tables or nesting tables are another handy addition, giving

{Inspiration Workshop! – family room}

It’s Thursday {just one more day until I fly out for Blog Sugar!}… time to be inspired! I’m glad you’re here ~ read on for this week’s prompt and then scroll down to link up your post ;]

THE PROMPT // This week’s prompt is FAMILY ROOM! Growing up, our family room was our most lived-in room of the whole house. Naps, TV {woo hoo! Full House, Growing Pains, the TGIF line-up}, birthday parties, reading, puzzle making, Christmas morning… we did every thing together as a family in the family room. ♥ And I know Zack’s childhood was the same way, which is why I love *our* family room so much.

MY INSPIRATION //
