After seeing her chic bedroom and spacious living area, it’s safe to assume that actress Jessy Mendiola’s home features a blue-and-white color palette. Jessy occasionally shares photos on her Instagram account—from cute wall accents to posh vignettes. Just recently, she uploaded a snapshot of her living area, a bright and airy spot in her home where one can relax and take a break.

What makes it a peg-worthy living area? We can’t help but notice the inviting sofa, the calming color scheme, and curated pieces that add to the welcoming vibe of the home. If you’re saving up for a living room revamp, here are noteworthy must-haves inspired by Jessy’s space you can consider when shopping:

Anchor the space with a patterned rug.

If you’re sticking to neutral-colored investment pieces, inject color into your setup through the accessories. A patterned area rug can anchor the space and tie the look together.

Give gray sofas a break.


We’ve seen many homes completed with a gray-colored sofa. It’s a safe choice if you want to go for a timeless look that’s easy to update. Aside from eyeing the gray sofa available in stores, be on the lookout for seating pieces in cream that can elevate the look you’re going for. This two-seater has the right balance of curves, clean lines, and wooden touches that can add to the appeal of your home.

Go all-out with pillows.


If you’re holding back on the colors, take inspiration from Jessy’s living area. She settled for a neutral sofa, then spruced it up with pillows in varying shades of aqua and turquoise. Not yet ready to commit to bold hues? Settle for lighter shades that are easy on the eyes. You can also work with white pillows sporting subtle and simple prints.

Choose a unique center table.


Tired of all those square and ordinary-looking center tables? Pick an interesting piece that will surely captivate your guests. The piece above maybe round, but it has an interesting twist and shape that can liven up the look of your living area. It looks like an optical illusion too, don’t you agree?

Pick a unique accent chair.


We’re used to seeing ottomans and wing chairs in many living areas so why not settle for something unique and beach-inspired? A wooden chair reminiscent of resorts can add to the laid-back and cozy vibe of your living area.

Don’t forget the plants.


In any home, big or small, plants can do wonders. Whether it’s a faux potted plant or a live houseplant you’ve recently bought, place it in a corner and it will surely add a refreshing tropical flavor to your space. Depending on the look you’re going for, you can settle for a vignette of small plants or you can spruce up a plain corner with two large plants.
