I've been saying for awhile that I'm going to show you my living room
since my house has been painted and is put back together now ~
so here it is!
I've been procrastinating on posting the pictures because
the room is far from finished.
With my cousin's advice, I moved the console table to the
front entryway. Found a new mirror at TJ Maxx.
The lamp used to be in our bedroom, but I moved it into
the living room because I want to incorporate blue/turquoise/teal
(haven't made up my mind on this - still "playing") for pops of color with all the neutral.
Moved the buffet, which used to be at the entryway, to this other wall by the couch.
Dogwood blossom pictures and rug are from IKEA.
Cousin had suggested teal pillows for the couch, but I don't like these in
this setting. I think they're too bright. So now I'm on the hunt for new pillows.
Buffet vignette isn't finished either.
The little side table to the left of the couch will also be repainted.
I might do that in a light blue and distress it a bit.
Cousin also picked out these two pictures for over my fireplace.
Quite modern and totally different than what I'm used to,
but I think I actually like these. Sometimes it's good to break out of
your comfort zone.
Bought the black cube at IKEA last weekend. Not sure if that wicker
chair is going to stay there. I'm also trying to decide what
in the world to put on that blank wall. Another picture would
clash with the two above the fireplace and would be "too much".
I'm thinking maybe three floating shelves above the cube
and then a metal art sculpture (in blues!) next to the shelves, above the chair.
What do you think? Any other ideas?
Oh, and please excuse the crazy shadows on the wall. One is me and the
other is from the window on the front door.
Here's a close-up of the cube. You can see how I incorporated touches of
blue into the displays.
The other area of the living room that I didn't show was the windows.
They're on the wall next to the console table. All that's on these
windows right now are wooden blinds. On the hunt for curtains.
Still lots to do!
