Timothy's Scandinavian Modern Living Room
“Creating a fun and energetic living room was really important to me when I recently moved into my new place. Luckily, IKEA is a pretty colorful place! Finding a couple of vibrant accent items to mix in alongside the more neutral base pieces was easy. Mod poppy wall decals add some subtle whimsy.”
