I piddled with my dining room last month.
Now on to the living room (or is it den? idk)... I'm calling it the living room, because that is where we live. And more recently, the space that I am craving some change in. To say that I am tired of the gold/red/green color scheme is an UNDERSTATEMENT.
Here is your 25 cent tour:
View from entryway into den
In the furniture store, my couch + chair looked like a darker green. Yeah...never been too pleased with the color against the asian jute walls. Trying to find some brown slipcovers...
I love these mis-treatments.
But I think I may need to lighten-up a bit, and get rid of the black paisley.
I am never satisfied with the mantle...
(Hi my name is Judith and I am an accessory addict)
M made a 'flag' the other night...The toy chest and sofa table haven't made it into the attic yet...
A photo wall will replace the iron.
But I think I may like the sofa table there with 2 lamps? hmmm....
The wall color is called Asian Jute. I had it color-matched a Farrell Calhoun 5 years ago. It's ok, but it's time to change. And especially since hubby put in new halogen/flourescent light bulbs. Holy cow! It is bright in there! I keep asking him what wattage the bulbs are?! I've got to cool down this room. I want to paint it a neutral Latte from Sherwin Williams.
I'll be doing more molding boxes below the chair-rail. With the tall ceilings, I need to ground the space more.
Did you see TDC's new partnership with MyDesign Guide? I registered, and took the Stylefinder quiz. My style is Traditional/Rustic/Romantic/Asian. I knew I was traditional/rustic. I'm trying to add some romantic in the bedroom. But I'm not sure where Asian comes into play?
As a part of this new site, they are offering a free Quick Fix consultation on one room in your house. I picked our living room/den and uploaded pics to their site. We shall see what they say! I will let you know!
But I want your thoughts, too. What do you think of the layout of the room? Does it need to be flip-flopped? Do you like the double Thomasville bookcases? Are they too big? I'd love to hear feedback from more sets of eyes.
Let me have it...
