Get the Look: A Casual Yet Polished Living Room

Sometimes even decorating a casual living space can become a formal process. So when I stumbled upon this casual yet polished room on Design*Sponge, a space that's quite easy to replicate, I thought I'd share it with you. The furnishings in this room are readily available, which will make getting this look in your home a breeze. First of all, they've chosen mid-century seating, which is pretty common on Craigslist, at flea markets, and the like. A beautiful kilim is the dominant furnishing in the room; touches of focused artwork pull it all together; and soft, light gray walls create a calm backdrop. And the galvanized tin bucket filled with lavender, which you can pick up at your local garden shop, adds a lovely scent. To see some pieces to re-create this look,

Not really my style, but it's a nice-looking room.

I like this room, too. Some of the elements come across retro to me (in a good way). Also, I like how some of the framed artwork is on the ground, propped against the wall. Nice.

CB2 used to sell a side table version of that table with a marble top called the "Smart" table, much like the two shown here. I'm not sure if they're still available but you should check them out.

That is a beautiful room. I have been thinking of buying the CB2 coffee table you feature. Can't decide if 12" would look TOO weird in my home, though! that is so low!

As a renter living in an architecturally-lacking apartment, it is nice to see a room that can serve as slightly more realistic inspiration.
