If you’ve never been to Southern California, you’re truly missing out. It’s unlike anywhere else and the beautiful natural surroundings make for an equally unique interior design style.
It’s a blend of modern, coastal and bohemian with eclectic touches. Having grown up in Los Angeles, it also heavily influences my personal interior design style. I grew up knowing the casual, easy California living feeling and I’m sharing my best online finds with you.

Navy, Royal Blue, Indigo.. call it what you will, blue is a calming and transformative color. I’ve been pinning blue living room decor ideas and have found some gorgeous pieces that are all super affordable. Oh, and did I mention everything listed is also small space and apartment friendly? 

I tend to gravitate toward expensive things when I shop. It’s somewhat of a curse, really. When I was a teenager, my mom would say “you have champagne taste and a beer budget”. *sigh* She was right. To this day, give me two or more items to choose from, and 9 out of 10 times, I’ll chose THE MOST expensive one. 

Over the years, I’ve learned to mentally catalog expensive furniture and decor and then slowly chip away at my list by selectively shopping places like Target, HomeGoods, Michaels Crafts, Amazon and World Market. If you have patience, you’ll eventually find what you’re after for less money, but not everyone has time to wait.

I’ve been honing my bargain decor shopping skills for decades and I love to decorate, so sit back, relax and find all the decor you’ll need to transform your living room into a cozy, casual, costal California-inspired retreat.
