One of my very favorite blogs is Erin Loechner’s Design for Mankind.  Erin is thoughtful and authentic, her posts substantive and charming, attracting readers not just for her cool design sense (get ready to pin like crazy!) and well-curated curiosities but for her optimistic and witty musings on life, home, and everything beautiful (and even not so beautiful) in between!  She likens her blog to an “ongoing dinner party conversation” and– in her words– gets “so very thinky” in the wintertime (one of the few upsides to this blustery time of year)!

Naturally, her own home rocks. my. world.

What’s that, Erin?  You want me to come live in your house? My bags are packed!

I am so enamored with the way she took the hard (a black leather structured sofa) and made it soft, warm, inviting. There are so many interesting lines, shapes and textural details– even without an abundance of color, your eye will never be bored.  We’ve done our best to help you get the Erin Loechner Design For Mankind Living Room look for yourself:

The Safavieh Paul Fabric Ottoman from Wayfair is also available in a pretty beige color.  Prefer a less textured ottoman to the velvety option we presented?  Try the Michael Ottoman by Safavieh at Wayfair or the HoganOttoman by Safavieh available for purchase at Home Depot.

Do you love Erin’s living room as much as we do?  If so, follow her blog immediately– you’ll never look back!
