Our Lil' Living Room

Well, we don't have much space to work with in our tiny apartment, but I've made the most of it and attempted to decorate our living room with a coastal vibe.  I'm a devoted reader of Coastal Living and love scouring their magazines and website for inspiration.  I'll have to post at another time some of my favorite living spaces from Coastal Living.  Anyhow, I shop on a budget....I love finding bargains and pretty much everything you see in the photos was purchased inexpensively.  Let me know what you think of our cool and casual living room.  p.s. Don't you just love how one of my pups, lil' Bella, has posed herself in some of the photos?  She's such a diva!

The picture above the fireplace was purchased from Target years ago, the side chair was purchased from TJ Maxx, and the pillow on the side chair was purchased from Ross.  The silly lil' puppy on the couch was not purchased....she was rescued from an animal shelter. :)

The mirror was purchased at Ikea and all of the pillow covers were purchased at Pottery Barn...on sale!

The curtains and pillow cover were purchased at Pottery Barn.  The leopard throw was purchased at TJ Maxx several years ago.

The vase and shells were purchased at Michael's craft stores and the sand was purchased at Pottery Barn.

These vases and fillers were purchased at Michael's crafts stores, except for the rhinestoned starfish.  My mom gave that to me over Easter...I love how it sparkles in the vase!

I purchased this in Key West a couple of days before I got married (yes, we were married barefoot in the sand in Key West!)

I purchased two of these shades and lamp bases at Lowe's Home Improvement.
