Nobody asked but welcome back to the Stop Doing This series! Today I’m sharing 9 things we all need to reconsider when it comes to decorating our living rooms. I’ve definitely been guilty of these things which is why we get to laugh and learn about it today.

    Great & affordable advice.

  3. bryson west on April 7, 2023 at 7:45 am

    Ugh! Totally agree. Why would anyone want a blanket with a logo. They’re using you to advertise!

  4. Michelle on April 7, 2023 at 7:45 am

    you didn’t give an alternative to sofa slip covers! i hate my sofa but can’t afford to get another one ๐Ÿ˜…

    I would love to live in a jungle buf I couldn’t keep my 8 cats from ruining them so just trying for a few cause a few is easier to watch then the jungle I’d prefer

  11. Amina Akhtar on April 7, 2023 at 7:51 am

    Hello. Is there any reason not to put a shelf on top of the sofa other than safety? I have two shelves and I already secured all the pieces I put on the shelves. I would love to learn your perspective on this. Thanks!

  12. SugarNSpice on April 7, 2023 at 7:52 am

    ok Arvin in This video โ€ฆI canโ€™t stop focusing on the tiny amputee on your wall โ€ฆwhy do you want me to focus on it ? You have light pointing to it so I know you want me to.. I didnโ€™t hear a word you said because of it

    I went into this video prepared to be annoyed, but I really enjoyed it (it didnโ€™t hurt that I hadnโ€™t committed any sins on the list lol). And I like your evil, baby clown laugh ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿคก

    Great ideas and nice colors….inviting living room.

    Amazon socas are cheap

  20. Lauren M. Lewis on April 7, 2023 at 8:00 am

    That blanket is not….just leave it there!! I bought a sofa and I’m having the hardest time finding accessories to make it pop!! I thought the sofa was gray!! I bought a gray/silver area rug and once the sofa came, I realize the sofa is a grayish brown (strange color) At this point, I’m thinking about having the sofa upholstered in a different color!! That’s do funny. While I was typing this you said stop the brown sofas!! Beige goes nice with the sofa, but it feel a little grandparenty house!!

  21. David LYF on April 7, 2023 at 8:02 am

    Aside from the room, you have a great outfitโ€ฆ nice Issey Miyakes

  22. Scott Brown on April 7, 2023 at 8:03 am

    I always thought it was a Harry Potter or Hogwarts dupe blanket with the โ€œHโ€ on it โ€” I learned something new today!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿคฏ

  23. L B on April 7, 2023 at 8:04 am

    Ummm…..your taste is severely lacking, sir.

  24. RobinBird J on April 7, 2023 at 8:04 am

    Arvin: โ€ž Stop using just 2 colors in your LR.โ€œ While sitting filming in a 1 color LR! Your pop of color is 1 black vase. But I must admit, youโ€™re right. Iโ€™m going to check my LR! LOL

  25. Disha Bijolia on April 7, 2023 at 8:04 am

    You are a delight. I loved this video and the one about chairs. I validated my taste in design through your choices and I feel great about renovating my place now. You replaced my stress with excitement. Much appreciated. Lots of love.

  26. GirlyBoo on April 7, 2023 at 8:06 am

    Chile, I must just be a basic ass bitch! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I literally have big brown recliner couches, and they’re getting worn out by my 3 kids and my great dane. I have some slip covers in my cart at this VERY moment that I’m bout to put on them couches… also, I don’t even know what that H logo is.

    Too bouguie for me! But I love the video. I also agree about the 2 colors. I’m redoing my living room (affordably) and my colors are chocolate brown, gray, turquoise, and yellow. Super excited to see how it turns out.

  27. Huttaya Maple ๐Ÿ on April 7, 2023 at 8:07 am

    You are so adorable and entertaining!!! ๐Ÿ’ keep sharing your SME with us! Ok

    I have to say, I love your living room!

  30. Karelyn Richardson on April 7, 2023 at 8:19 am

    Iโ€™m fucked my sofas are poop brown ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™ˆ but it wasnโ€™t the color I ordered it was lighter but what the heck I didnโ€™t want to send it back and wait for them again ๐Ÿ˜ข

  31. Bee Jackson on April 7, 2023 at 8:19 am

    Love your personality! Great decor tips!

  32. Camie DeS on April 7, 2023 at 8:19 am

    Agree totally! The way you talk and explain things makes me laugh along with you… and reminds me of a friend from childhood…๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ€

  34. Jane Davis on April 7, 2023 at 8:20 am

    THANK YOU for hating โ€˜pop of colorโ€™ Gah! I hate it too! Makes me cringeโ€ฆ.

  35. Judith Asuncion on April 7, 2023 at 8:20 am

    You’re awesome! Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ’‹

  36. Jaime Ericksberg on April 7, 2023 at 8:20 am

    You know what I need to stop doing in my living room? Stop letting my kids in it ๐Ÿ˜‚. I donโ€™t care what kind of design or aesthetic youโ€™re trying to achieve, having 3 kids will ruin it. Pillows will forever be on floor. They will sneak food and get crumbs between the cushions, shoes will be left everywhere and anything fragile will eventually get knocked over and broken. Thatโ€™s what needs to stop in my living room. Iโ€™ll decorate when the boys get older๐Ÿ˜‚

  37. Theresa Bogert on April 7, 2023 at 8:21 am

    Love you and your cute personalityโค. But seriously gurl that big wall with two tiny pieces of art. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคช

  38. madiola1234 on April 7, 2023 at 8:24 am

    .I enjoyed this but I couldn’t take my eyes off that headless amputated limbs doll on your wall…lmao!

  39. Azucena on April 7, 2023 at 8:25 am

    Hahahaha your so funny!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

  40. Ann Tunaley on April 7, 2023 at 8:26 am

    Hi ive missed you

  41. DatBoy Slick on April 7, 2023 at 8:26 am

    That couch look dope!!!

  42. Michael Canter on April 7, 2023 at 8:29 am

    Great tips!! love your energy

  43. Glenn Patrick on April 7, 2023 at 8:33 am

    I totally agree on family photos. Personally Iโ€™d rather have an album that I can look at with intention rather then just having a photo of great aunt nelly on the wall that I walk by everyday and ignore.

  44. B S on April 7, 2023 at 8:33 am

    Okay but I’m wondering if I should be taking advice from someone sitting on a couch that has two random things , not even symmetrical on the wall, behind him.

  45. Magnelan1 on April 7, 2023 at 8:34 am

    OH I AM certainly gonna have that book ot the jungle filmed in my living room!! I already own a tiny bagheera. Those plants are staying, growing, and invading!

  46. Lee Francis on April 7, 2023 at 8:37 am

    Oh my Lord I hate those Hermes blankets!!!

  47. Donnah Quesada on April 7, 2023 at 8:38 am

    Is those two items above your sofa decorating?

  48. leighway1122 on April 7, 2023 at 8:38 am

    I really like your videos and the advice you give! Yes, you have a definite personal style but under all that, you’re as solid as they come, intelligent and you know your stuff. I’ve always been able to find something useful as I watch your work! Thank you.

  49. April Jean on April 7, 2023 at 8:42 am

    " I don’t want a POP of color, okay?!? I want a blend!!!" I LOVE you!!! This is amazing! Subscribed I’m an instant fan!

  50. Elizabeth Hoberg on April 7, 2023 at 8:42 am
