After a decade in our house in Crested Butte, we’ve been slowly updating parts of our home. We started in the kitchen last year, but it was time to work on a living room refresh. I was looking for a way to make my living room feel light and bright. My goal was to focus on a fresher look with a modern vibe.

Speaking of black and white, we’re sharing our new free printable See the Good wall art with you guys. We could all use a little reminder to see the good in every day. I’ve created two sizes for you to download, one on 11×17 paper that works well in an 11×14 frame and then one for an 8×10 frame.
Just download and print the wall art on regular weight copy paper or card stock.
I love this print hanging in the living room and my girls do as well. It’s a great daily reminder for us all!
It’s been so fun to do this living room refresh. It truly feels more modern and inviting. The Sven couch is cozy, without feeling too oversized. We all love to curl up on it with a book or to watch a movie together.
And now for the incredible Article giveaway! One lucky reader will win a $500 Memorial Day Article shopping spree! The giveaway runs from May 23-28, 2018. Good luck!
