Fall is here, and with it comes a natural instinct to cozy up our homes and make them inviting and comfortable… after all, when the weather turns cold we’re going to be spending a lot more time inside! So it seemed like the perfect time to team up with Loloi Rugs to give my living room a little makeover with a new vibrant rug, some plush textural throw pillows and an oversized throw over an armchair, just begging for someone to curl up and take a nap!

Loloi invited me to join seven other design bloggers to transform my living space with their brilliant (and super affordable!) Anastasia Collection of rugs. Not only was I thrilled with how the shot of color transformed my own living room; I also can’t wait to see what the other bloggers create in theirs! And we’re going head-to-head: if my living room, shown here, gets the most votes by midnight on October 14th, $1000 will be donated towards my chosen charity, Ever Mother Counts. Hop on over to the voting site to see who else is in the running, and (shameless plug) pick me! Pick me!

Okay, now that you’ve voted (thank you!!) back to my living room makeover… You guys know that I’m a neutral girl at heart, but neutrals can get pretty boring without some interesting textures, details, and even – yes – some strategically-placed color. I’m truly smitten with Loloi’s Anastasia Collection, which is inspired by exotic high-end silk rugs that feel historic and well worn. Their designers took those legacy designs and modernized them using stain-resistent fibers, and the result is a rug that’s durable enough for my little monsters kids, and that’s also way more affordable than it looks.

Along with the dramatic transformation that the rug provided, I tossed some textural throw pillows, also from Loloi, onto the couch which really cozied things up. And, of course, the least expensive way to redecorate a living room: engage in some weekend coffee table styling! Simply moving around your books, pulling a pretty object or two from other areas of the house, and arranging a pretty bunch of seasonal flowers is my favorite way to transform the living room without spending a penny.

This bar cart had started to feel cluttered as random objects got added to it, so I decided to clear the surface and start from scratch with just a few simple pieces. We also hung this print from one of my favorite photographers, Christian Chaize, just above it, which anchored the bar cart on the wall and gives the room a beachy vibe all year around.

What do you think? Do you like the addition of some bright color in my neutral space? I love the final result even more than I was expecting! You can purchase Loloi’s rugs on sites like Wayfair and Rugs Direct, as well as retailers around the nation. And don’t forget to hop on over to the site to see how other bloggers like Kate Arends of Wit & Delight and Justina Blakeney styled their rugs — and vote for your favorite (hopefully mine!!!)

    I love the decor of your house, Camille! It’s my dream to have a house like yours. I used to love everything white, but slowly I realized that I’m also a neutral girl at heart. I love the combination of neutral colors with dark wood.

    Thank you!

    • Camille Styles | December 10, 2015 at 3:17 pm

      Thank you! It does have pink and purple tones, but they’re subtle enough to feel almost neutral in the space… which is saying a lot coming from a neutral girl like me! 🙂 I absolutely love the full effect.

    Hi Camille! I bought this rug and I love how your camel color chair ties in with the colors. Could you tell me where you bought your chair?

      Awesome – so glad! The chair is from West Elm. 🙂

    I love your room. A few years ago I saw an image very similar to this room and the name Camille was referenced. The imaged showed a beige sofa/with chaise adorned with white pillows and a light throw. The ottoman had a large square tray with a white hydrangea, some books. The side table had a glass bowl with paper whites. One wall was pictured with an archway flanked by two doors that lead to the patio. You could see the same awesome chandelier. With all this said, would you still have an image of that room? Thank you, Michele

    Clicked over from Studio McGee’s weekly roundup. This is stunning! Can you tell me about those sliding doors, how they have held up over time? Does it expose your interior to the elements? I’m intrigued: this would be perfect for our living room and porch addition.

    I love the look of this room! I am currently redoing my living/dining spaces and just purchased both the rug you purchased and another Loloi rug. Do you have any recommendations about paint colors in the gray color family. I’m really not liking a lot of the grays I’ve tried.

    Perfection. Would you mind telling what paint color you used for the walls and for the trim…I am drowning in “white” paint chips and it looks like you found the perfect colors. Thanks in advance

      I’m not Camille, but I’ve used a Sherwin Williams color Greek Villa that I am in love with. It looks very similar. Of course, with natural or artificial light it varies, but it’s gorgeous and goes well with so much!

    I love your look!! Im currently re arranging my living room and really want this rug. My walls are ivory white but more on the white side and my couch is like a medium grey. Do you think the couch would pair nicely with that rug or do you think it’ll be too much grey? Any feedback would be great! Thanks!
