Eclectic Bohemian Farmhouse Style Spring Living Room Tour

Today I’m really excited to be sharing our eclectic bohemian farmhouse style spring living room tour as part of the Seasonal Simplicity Spring Home Tour Series.

Woot woot! It’s spring home tour week!

I always love home tour weeks, and spring is definitely one of my sll time favourites. After the winter I’m always so excited to be bringing out the fresh springy colours and vibrant florals again, and this year I was feeling that desire even more than usual. We had a greyer winter then most, and the onset of some crisp, cold, sunny days recently has made me begin dreaming of all things spring. Although we’ve been nearly completely immersed in renovation planning-DIY-cleaning etc., I’m really looking forward to escaping the indoor mayhem and getting out in the yard again! Who is with me?

Plus… today I get to share our living room and family room with you – which are the two most “finished” areas in our new home! I haven’t really shared much of our new house since Christmas time, but you’re about to be hit with an onslaught of catch-up posts. Truthfully, it’s hard to DIY and renovate and post about it all at the same time! There just aren’t enough hours in the day.

But now, today, I can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to. And I’m joined by 39 fabulous friends this week who are also sharing their spring home tours with you for the Seasonal Simplicity Spring Home Tour Series!

Do you remember how these room started out?

This is how they looked when we first viewed this house…

A dated living room style with older floors and fireplace.

Large windows in the living room.

There is a piano and a bookshelf in the hallway between the dining room and the living room.

Since we sold most of our furnishings with our previous home, it was both fun and challenging to pretty much start over from scratch. I went less typically “coastal” with this design (for obvious reasons; it no longer being on a lake), and I’ve brought in more modern and bohemian touches. I’ve tempered it with some traditional and farmhouse elements, such as all the paneling we are adding, along with pops of seasonal colour.

And here is how things are looking now…

We live in a classic cathedral entrance or split level home, and as you go up the stairs, the living room is directly to your left, and the kitchen area is directly ahead. We’ll be skipping the kitchen today, as it’s soon to be under construction, and head straight into our living room…

Grey fireplace mantel and brick in the living room.

White couches are in the living room.

I shared our simple spring mantel here the other day

There is a lamp behind the armchair in the living room.

There are 3 white vases with lilac and a small wooden box with peonies on the fireplace mantel.

One of the pieces that we did bring from our previous home is the etagere shelf that you see beside our fireplace, though it’s been put to a different use in this home.

You can read the details about that here.

There is open shelving with plants and an antique typewriter on the shelves.

We ordered our big sectional from Ikea, it is part of the Farlov series.

I shared my thoughts about the Farlov chairs in this post.

Ikea sectional couch and chairs in the living room.

Throw pillows are on the couch.

A wooden coffee table is in the living room.

Bohelmian inspired throw pillows are on the couch.

This pillow series is from Tonic Living – one of my very favourite online fabric and pillow sources.

There is a boho style rug under the coffee table.

And the blush and grey pillows are from HomeSense, as is the boho rug (it’s layered over a simple jute rug from Ikea).

I’ll be sharing a tutorial soon on the paneling you see on that back foyer wall, as well. It’s one of my favourite projects from our new home, so far!

A nautical inspired tray is on the coffee table with white tulips.

A blue vase filled with pink and white flowers.

A blanket ladder is leaning against the wall.

The living room is adjoined by a smaller room that we turned into our family TV area. Friends and family were skeptical about how I planned to use this space, but I tell you, we absolutely love it! We have had many cozy movie nights already on that big sofa, and my husband or I often sit in the extra chair and hang out with the boys. It will be even better once we open up the wall between the kitchen and dining room and create a more open flow through the back part of the house.

The vintage cabinet was a Kijiji finds, and it’s one of my favourite pieces in the new house.

A large TV is sitting on a wooden table in the living room.

There is a small basket with pillows beside the TV.

A photo gallery wall is behind the couch.

I’ll be sharing the details on this simple family gallery wall really soon!

There is a white couch with striped blue and white pillows.

A wooden table is in front of the couch.

Patterned throw pillows are on the couch.

Blue, green and white throw pillows on the couch.

A navy blue sweater pillow is on the white armchair.

I also shared our spring dining room tour and tablescape just the other day – you can take that tour here.


That was a LOT of pictures, right? It was like radio silence for three months and then, that! Did I ever mention I can be a bit all-or-nothing? But, really, what do you think of the look this new house is taking?

And, don’t forget, there is awesome inspiration happening all week long!

Next up on today’s tour is my friend Laura over at The Turquoise Home. I know you’ll love her fresh, floral springy tour!

  1. I love your space. I purchased the Farlov sectional and am finally needing to wash the base part of the slipcover. What do you do to get the cover off? Do we need to lift each end of the sectional off the corner piece, take it all apart, to get the cover off? I’m struggling.

    Thanks so much for your time.


    1. Hi Danielle,
      I’m just about to write a more in-depth post on this topic! Yes, you have to pull the 3 sections apart to wash the frame of the slipcover because it’s attached with velcro to the inside edges of where the 3 parts of the frame meet in the corner section. We try to wash the frame piece only occasionally due to this – we didn’t realize that it was more complicated when we ordered the sectional either so that is why I want to write the post to share that with people when they are making their decision. You slide the couch sections upwards to get them free, as they are each held in place with a little metal bracket near the front corners of the corner section. Another piece of advice I’m going to add to my post about washing slipcovers is to pre-treat them first with stain treatment as needed, and if they are quite grubby then first soak them for an hour in a bathtub with OXI in the water. Hope this helps.

  2. Hi Krista. Your house looks really lovely, well done. Can I just ask how you like your Ikea Farlov sectional now you have had it for a while?

  3. Your new home is lovely Krista and such a transformation! Beautiful tour my friend..not sure how you find the time! Oh, and I’m loving all those gorgeous pillows too. 🙂 Thank you for hosting!

  4. Omgosh, your living room is amazing! I seriously love everything about your makeover. Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Merry Monday. I’m so inspired but all of your design choices. I feel a makeover coming in my near future!

  5. Krista, your living room looks just lovely! Such a wonderful combination of farmhouse and boho. 🙂 Saw your link at Style Showcase… would love to have you link-up at Homestyle Gathering, too!

  6. Wow your new house is looking so great already. I love your layered rugs and gorgeous pillows -they both add so much pattern and texture to the space. Beautiful boho!

  7. Krista I love your new house! I hadn’t seen any pictures of it yet and you have done an amazing job transforming it to the light and bright space it is! Looking forward to seeing the rest of your rooms come together. Thanks for hosting! Pinned!

  8. Wow, your living is so beautiful, I also design my living room the same as it. Keep sharing such a good job. Keeps it up. thumb up 🙂

  9. Love how refreshing it all looks!! Great job!!
    I have to ask though… Did you keep the old coffee table?? I can’t tell you how many estate/garage sales I have been to trying to find a table like that.

    1. Oh Cathy, right?!? It was hard to let it go, but the purchasers really wanted to buy all the furnishings in the living room (and art)… and throughout the house – basically “as is”. Eek! I have seen a few of that style table online, though. If we manage to get a cottage at the lake I’d love to re-use a similar style one again. Kijiji is one of my favourite sources to check!
