Use What You Have Styling Challenge Love Seat Edition


I’m trying to up my styling game. Yes, it really is a game to me. I like to play with my house, don’t you? I love what happens when you move your own stuff around (read: no money was spent in the making of this post). It makes your old stuff look new! I decided to give it a try with my newly refinished cargo love seat, especially now that it has oh-so-pretty white vinyl seats.

Full disclosure, I was doing this for the styling practice and knew that everything was going to go back whence it came. But it sure was fun – and good practice (yeah, cause styling takes practice but looks so easy by the pros)! However, I don’t know if it was more fun to actual style the love seat or to go around the house collecting a myriad of blankets, pillows, magazines, and mugs while getting the weirdest “What are you doing?!” looks from Eric (he doesn’t even ask anymore…just rolls with it).

So here are the results of my shop the house styling session for the cargo love seat.

Option #1: Beachy Cool

Using cool blues and whites creates a sense of the ocean and beach. Different textures make the room layered and relaxed feeling. I’m ready to cuddle up with a book and stare at the rolling waves (I wish!).

Option #2: Simplistic Preppy

Bright colors with distinct patterns and limited styling makes this pop. Perfect for a perusal of a mag and a cup of tea!

Option #3: Bohemian Cozy

Funky colors, sequins, and fuzzy textures makes this relaxed and free but still inviting.

Option #4: Funky Flavor

Layers, layers, layers, playing with different combinations of colors and textures. It’s different and bold. Perhaps not for everyone but isn’t that what styling is all about – what you like?!
