…the new wall color in the living room, that is. It’s a warm, rich, gray-brown. I love it. And it loves me. Every time I walk into this room, I literally feel like the walls are hugging me.
The progress on the room is slow, but sure. The white trim is coming along. One of the two big walls is painted. I picked up bamboo shades for the windows to match the dining room and kitchen. And if I ignore the fact that all the furniture is shoved into an island in the middle of the room…I start to see the potential! Loving the mirror above the fireplace, but realizing that the scalloped trim needs to go away, STAT.
Once the painting is done, I’ll start earnestly looking for furniture. Right now I’m thinking a sectional in the middle of the room with a side chair of some sort where the wicker one is. A new rug is high on the priority list. I want new lighting, too. Oh, and that big, blank, brown wall? I’m picturing a gallery wall. Maybe??
My pal Layla from The Lettered Cottage has promised to give me some design ideas, and I can’t WAIT for her input!! Speaking of which, her awesome blog (which I had the honor of designing) is up for a huge award! TLC is one of the finalists for The Homies (put on my Apartment Therapy). This is a big deal. And they totally deserve it. So please go vote for them!!
All for now. Happy Monday!
