Sit Down With Me in My New Living Room!

Sydne Style shows modern glam living room with pink velvet sofa from hd buttercupIt’s my final home reveal! Today I’m taking you inside my new living room. The living room is what you see immediately when you open the doors to my apartment. I wanted it to be inviting and set the tone of the space.

Like the rest of the space, I went for a modern glam vibe with marble, blush and velvet. The biggest change is sliding doors. We added two extra feet so you can really take in the LA view the minute you walk through the door.


I’ve always wanted a chaise lounge, so my designer, Jean Luxe, helped me space out the living room so I could include the velvet piece into the design. It’s now become my blogging chair. Even though I initially wanted a white couch, I’m so happy I went with the blush. The material is so much more Bunny friendly!

Not so Bunny friendly is the white rug. But I loved it too much and the texture does helps hide dirt. Since I wanted to show off the rug, I did a lucite coffee table. I’ve been playing around with different coffee table styling. Right now it’s a gold and agate theme.

Like the rest of my apartment, I mixed metals, playing around with gold, rose gold and silver accents. Since I have gold hardware on my entry doors, we did a gold flush mount as you walk in. And my friend Gray Malin’s rosé photograph sets the tone of the space.

One of my favorite pieces is my media console. It’s actually a sideboard table from Joss & Main. I simply drilled holes in the back to make it tech-friendly. The glossy white gives a clean vibe and the shelving allows me to switch up my decor styling. During the shoot I did a Chanel corner and various books and flowers. Over the holidays, I added garland. Now I also have this TV on the wall.

Since my apartment is all white, I ordered disposable slippers to give to guests when they arrive. I keep them in a little metal basket by the front door. I’ve been personalizing them by writing my friends’ initials with a sharpie on the slippers.

I also redid the balcony. I wanted new tile that was Instagram friendly, so I went with a gray and white print. I continued the lucite theme from inside the apartment with acrylic chairs and a matching bistro table. Then over on my outdoor couch, I added a playful touch with animal pillows. The raccoon pillow reminds me of Bunny!

    So stunning and beautiful! I absolutely love your white flooring in your living room space and I’m looking for something similar. Can you tell me the brand and color of the flooring? Does it have more of a beige or gray undertone. Thanks so much!

      Thanks Olivia! It was called Broadway. I got it at a tile store in Orange County. I definitely recommend looking at them in person. This was a lesser known brand that I liked more than others. It has more of a beige undertone.

    love your style. I will be decorating and renovating a kitchen. I would like to use provincial style but not too bullky and with a simplistic look…if there is such a thing.
    I will probable put in floor boards but not sure. Any ideas you could offer me would be appreciated.

    Thank you very much for these solutions. It looks very light and gentle, I would say that you can immediately see that you had a hand in it. My husband and I were looking for a more standard option, and we are also thinking about white walls to make the guest room brighter. In this article we have found great options for how to match the guest room with the brown furniture we bought
