    Garrett we would have a lot to talk about because the whole family dabbles in art and nearly everything on my walls we produced.😊

  2. Geronimo2Fly on August 5, 2023 at 3:36 pm

    As far as the lighting going up rather than down, do you mean all lighting or just the ambient light? It seems strange to me to have task lighting pointing upward. Iin the picture at the end, I would probably use a lamp like that to read a book rather than light a room. Wouldn’t it be better to have it pointed down rather than up for that purpose?

    Great video! Thanks! Missing the 🐶🐶🐶

    Hi Garrett, Dawn here. I’ve been watching you for a long and enjoy your content and the pups too. I finally subscribe today. Glad to be aboard.

    My entire colour scheme (and a good part of my aesthetic!) sprung from an antique green glazed ginger jar (the real thing, that once held imported Chinese cooking ginger) I found 25 years ago in a second hand shop. It cost me $6. I still love it! Thank you for all the great tips, Garrett! I love your channel – I always watch and like your videos as soon as I see them, even if I don’t get a chance to comment. 😊 Hope you and your hubs and the puppers are having a great summer! ❤

  6. Rockergirl on August 5, 2023 at 3:42 pm

    I needed this video!! ❤

  7. The Dirt Princess on August 5, 2023 at 3:43 pm

    Excellent video as always! I loved the part about "dont count black or white." Very helpful.

  8. Wendy Kornfein on August 5, 2023 at 3:44 pm

    I too, started with patterned pillows, closely matching a similar matching rug. May have mentioned earlier…Love your style! Learning from you always.

  9. murasaki9 on August 5, 2023 at 3:45 pm

    Because of my mobility issues, I had to get a regular recliner bc I needed the kind that help me out of the chair. I tried to pick a really interesting fabric that will complement my future furniture moving. I’m going to switch out the family room with the living room.

  10. Nanette G on August 5, 2023 at 3:48 pm

    Wow, this video was so helpful as far as color schemes go! My brown, sage and beige with black accents make sense now. I honestly wasn’t sure until now. Thank you Garrett!!

  11. Rose-anna Sage on August 5, 2023 at 3:48 pm

  12. Amy Weaver on August 5, 2023 at 3:51 pm

    What a wonderful video to come home to! As always, amazing advice. 😊

  13. WebBloggess on August 5, 2023 at 3:52 pm

    After watching you for over 4 months, i think it’s time i subscribed. I mean, I’ve watched over 70% of your channel … makes sense, yes? 😊 Here goes!! By the way … very informative and easy to understand and apply.

  14. Virginia LopezRey on August 5, 2023 at 3:52 pm

    You always teach me something new!
    One example: I’m moving from beautiful white terrazo floors (where I wanted them to stand out) to a place with boring beige tile (so I’m going to need a rug).

  15. Elizabeth Villacreses on August 5, 2023 at 3:53 pm

    ❤you Garrett!!! You’re so classy & beautiful 🌹

  16. Michele Curtis on August 5, 2023 at 3:54 pm

    Can I send you pictures of my living room and you can give me advice?

  17. deb S on August 5, 2023 at 3:54 pm

    First I love all your videos
    You always say don’t buy furniture set but I do have a brown leather 4 piece couch set and I do not want to buy another one and my house is small I do not have any other couch or chairs to mix and match so can you please give some ideas of how to not feel matchy matchy
    What can I do and I’m sure there are other people who have the same problem like me
    Your advice will be much appreciated
    Thank you 🙏

  18. 123Rockchild on August 5, 2023 at 4:02 pm

    Garrett, would you share some recommended sites for rugs? I had laminate flooring installed in my home and now need to purchase rugs for my living room and dining area.

  19. CAROLE FREEMAN on August 5, 2023 at 4:04 pm

    I felt this was the perfect video for me. I am currently putting my Living/sitting room together in our new home. Currently we have the rug laid out and our light blue 🩵love seats ordered. Today, after a lot of of searching, I found the perfect coffee table. It is a Mid-Century wooded table that is not overwhelming but still has style. We will have to wait until the furniture arrives to see about floor lamps. All our older furniture has moved to the family room in the finished basement, where we have put a new Frame TV by Samsung. So your video on living room, felt well timed. Thanks, Garrett 🤗🤩🇨🇦😊

  20. YouTuber on August 5, 2023 at 4:06 pm

    I have been trying to figure out if I want to buy sconces with the light pointing either upwards or downwards and I was leaning towards down. Thank you so much for saving me from making that mistake❤

  21. A little bit of this and that with Lucy on August 5, 2023 at 4:06 pm

    Hello 👋 love this video. Very helpful because I’m in the process of custom making my coffee table from this gorgeous mahogany door that has these floral carvings im very excited about it can’t wait to see how it will turn out 😊

  22. Ramani Menon on August 5, 2023 at 4:06 pm

    A very good morning dear Garrett,
    What a fantastic video today, putting all the living room things in order of design, just loved it, and simultaneously linking per design episodes is wonderful and so helpful for someone who would have just started:)
    I had such an ear to ear smile when I heard the colour scheme running at your place, because same pinch, me too😍
    Royal blue, cream and accent of pink here as well, thou what brought the really hearty smile on me is even I don’t have pink or say very bare minimum pink in my wardrobe❤
    Love that for us🥰
    Always tons of thanks for the enlightenment towards the magic of different lightings, I have incorporated it very well.
    PS : I got a little vintage cast iron bench for my porch today, and guess what it’s a shade of blue with black arms. The seating of front porch was a long pending job and I was looking for the right piece I guess for more than a year now. I saw it at marketplace yesterday and boom piece at home next morning. Now I can for sure enjoy the front garden as well with a hot cup of coffee:)
    My oasis is the backyard with the pool, swing, daybed and the flowery fruity garden but I always loved the east sun in the front yard with the smell of roses and the wait was worth for the right bench. It’s just perfecto!!!
    You have a beautiful mid week and the weekend. See you soon!!
    Much love,
    And oh btw I loved your blue shirt and I got so many interruptions today watching your video, started since morning 8 and after 4 important interruptions, finished watching it now at 11:30 AM aus time😬

  23. Verbena Blu on August 5, 2023 at 4:08 pm

    I love your traditional classy looking space. I wish you’d show more of that style in your examples.

  24. Nohemi Martinez on August 5, 2023 at 4:11 pm

    I have a beige sofa and too blues chairs with beiges , I know I can do blue and beiges and whites tones but what other color I can use to decorate? I have a plant 🌱 can I use green tones ?

  25. Denise Harrell on August 5, 2023 at 4:11 pm

    I have a rose and navy blue color scheme in my living room. I put up a Magritte poster ( ship of ocean water) with Picasso sketches for my gallery wall, and a pink and blue antique stained glass in the picture window. I chose 2 6 x 9 foot chindi rugs for my hardwood floors that are in brown based tones. Don’t laugh, they are machine washable!!😅😅😅

  26. Einah Sirro on August 5, 2023 at 4:13 pm

    That blue rug at the 7:35 mark… man, that is a beautiful rug.

  27. Sharon Shmuel on August 5, 2023 at 4:13 pm

    Hi there so happy to see your channel growing Bravo 👏🏼

  28. Nellie Melba on August 5, 2023 at 4:13 pm

    I wondered why the rug in my living room didn’t really work until I replaced it with a beautiful thrift shop find – a vintage Ercol coffee table, and the space totally opened up! Thank you, Garrett, I’m about to decorate the living room and needed inspiration!

  29. Patricia White on August 5, 2023 at 4:14 pm

    Any advice on a reupholstered fabric on a large wing back chair that would pair nicely with a light sage sofa and loveseat. It’s too grand a chair for a solid fabric it must stand out. The chair is old, in good condition from a quality store, covered in a multi checked pattern it worked at the time. There is sage in the check. Any thoughts on rich looking fabrics? Either that or I’m getting rid of the sofas and starting over. Thanks Garrett! Love your videos.

  30. Sharon Shmuel on August 5, 2023 at 4:16 pm

    Thanks for a great informative video ! I too love blue 🩵💙🩵 Have a wonderful day 🙏🐶🐶🐶

  31. Lise Tessier on August 5, 2023 at 4:16 pm

    Hi Garrett! Have a lovely day!

  32. Kris Parker on August 5, 2023 at 4:16 pm

    I didn’t realize how important it was to direct light upwards. This makes so much sense! I’m going to change my lights to cast their light upwards from now on. With three people in the house prone to migraines, this is so important. Thanks!

  33. Miss DJ on August 5, 2023 at 4:17 pm

    This video was right on time! You must be psychic… I’m going to adjust the lighting in the livingroom now that I know why I hated it so much.😂 Thank you for these fabulous tips. 😊

  34. Rose-anna Sage on August 5, 2023 at 4:18 pm

    Wow. The tip on having lighting face upward is absolutely amazing! I do have the cutest little lamp with lighting that points downward and, althoughI really like this lamp, it rarely gets used because the light gives me a headache. I thought I was just being a diva and imagining things (was told that). Thank you so much, beloved mentor for the guidance.

  35. Stella Teng on August 5, 2023 at 4:19 pm

    Garrett, You said "Living room is no just about seating, .." it showed me the true meaning of a living room. You taught me that the living room is not just meant to be inviting to my guests, but also for myself too.

  36. Rose-anna Sage on August 5, 2023 at 4:20 pm

    I am not a recliner person either, I find them ugly, clunky.

  37. Irene Iturriaga on August 5, 2023 at 4:21 pm

    You look great, love your BLUE outfit 🤍🩵💙

  38. Shelley (but you can call me Shell) on August 5, 2023 at 4:22 pm

    Great informative video!
    Thank-you Garrett, have a nice week!

  39. Gen MT on August 5, 2023 at 4:24 pm

    Do you recommend using a rug on top of carpet in the living room?

  40. ardas on August 5, 2023 at 4:28 pm

    OH HAI!

  41. Teri Bunker on August 5, 2023 at 4:30 pm


  42. Beverley Schenke on August 5, 2023 at 4:32 pm

    Great information, thank you Garrett. My living room has a high ceiling with large windows on one side to the dining room., the dinning room is at one end the fireplace at the other end. When we moved in it was painted a light grey as is most of the rest of the house. We have a beige sofa and love seat sort of tweed with blue flecks. It is high back and comfortable, but yes I agree one sofa and 2 chairs would be better. Lots of denim solid and lighter blue in pillows and blue and white accessories. I’d like to change the wall colour soon.

  43. Dfab on August 5, 2023 at 4:34 pm

    Hey there hi! Another great video thanks! I also love some black in each room. I feel like it anchors any space. Just a little, not a lot. You may not even notice it, but it helps.
