I am hoping this spring we will finally be able to furnish our living room that has sat empty (with the exception of some odds and ends) for almost a year now. The room is big, has a lot of windows and natural light, and has a pretty, white fireplace smack dab in the middle of the room. I plan on getting a rug, couch, two chairs, coffee table, end tables, a couple of lamps, and a few decorative pieces to finish off the room. I have long, cream colored window treatments and a neutral green color on the walls. Here is what I am thinking for the room:
I'm typically drawn to the persian, traditional-looking rugs but I am trying expand my style a little bit and go a tad more modern. My mom found this rug and I love all the colors in it! PLUS, I like the dark brown and think it would create great contrast to the cream curtains and cream couch that I plan on getting.I've always loved the slipcovered look. And I also really love white. Having kids, I obviously couldn't do this in our everyday, family room but think I can pull it off in the "formal" living room.
And of course we need some good lighting for those rainy days when I can curl up on the couch with some coffee and a good book (since I have SO many of those kinds of days)!! :)
And I liked this picture because 1) I like the bench/coffee table 2) I like the quilt hanging on the wall. For my birthday my mom and dad got me a BEAUTIFUL quilt that I plan on displaying in this room. And 3) I love all the colors with the white couch.
My mom and dad are also giving us 2 wicker chairs from their house that they no longer use. They don't look exactly like this but this was the only picture I could find.
Can't wait to get started on this!! Now if only my hubby were on board for all my big plans!
Hope you had a great weekend! Mine was FULL of Madness!!!
