My living room statement wall

Gallery wall?!? That's so last year. Statement wall? Totally on-trend. So, we had this wall. This big plain white (well actually, Ivory Mist) wall. Our full sofa sits against this wall flanked by two very old and beat up side tables that actually belonged to my father-in-law back when he had a bachelor pad in college. I had it in my mind that this wall needed to be filled with a collage of our most prized and selectively chosen framed works of art and photographs. Well, do you know how hard that is to actually pull together? It's damn hard. I suppose if you're a person that doesn't care about planning ahead you could just nail up your first frame and gradually build it out as you went along. But this girl? Hell to the no. I needed to have all of the pieces picked out and the layout determined before the first screw was drilled into the plaster. So after four months of careful thought and deliberation I have assembled...the living room statement wall. Horray for no more big blank wall! Check out more photos and product info below. 

I really love this room. During the day it's so bright and flooded with light and in the evening it feels warm and cozy. 

So my husband isn't really crazy about that ottoman, and I'm not either. It's like a super cheap thing that came from Bed Bath and Beyond. But let me tell you, that thing stores baby toys like a champion. So it's sticking around for a little while. 
This entertainment center is everything. Not only does it have a simple design, those panels you see on the front? They are made of metal mesh, which means that the cable box can be stored out of site but you can still use the remote. Genius! I seriously hate cable boxes and cords. So. much. hate.
