Welcome to my living room. It needs help.
I always feel like people think my house is decorated beautifully because of my blog. It is not. I love to pick out pretty things but committing to buying them & placing them is a whole other story.
There is just too much brown. I have been trying to debrownify my house for sometime. For now the couches have to stay and I just couldn’t figure if I should spend my dollars (only have about $600 to play with right now) on painting or accessorizing, etc. I’m bad at paint colors so in my effort to debrownify when I do paint I paint everything white (linen whitish because my trim is not stark white, unfortunately). Martha had some great paint color ideas in her current issue.
I know I def want a cowhide rug like this.
And that is a giant map of Paris (all separate squares hung together with upholstery tacks). I love it but not sure if that is where it should be in the room). And I thought maybe a deer head (faux or just antlers) inside the frame?
These are chairs I found in the garbage. I’d love to recover them in a white slipcover. See I’m the worst at decisions and fabric is what scares me the most. Any suggestions? (And the lamps, I think I am going to exchange them. I like these shades, maybe).
See that corner back there….. it is collecting everything & anything. It needs a baby grand, right!
I love this 5 picture. Thought maybe something like that would look cool with a bench underneath (It’s the fabric on the bench & a coordinating rug that trips me up -so then it stays looking this forevah).
And the hallway off the living room. More of the same BROWN.
(Oh, see my gallery wall. Frames are hung and now I have to pick out pictures. I am notorious for half completing projects.)
So what do you think? Any suggestions? What would you do? I’ll take any advice I can get.
And to make this fun lets do a giveaway. All you have to do is leave a suggestion or two. Then next Monday I’ll draw a winner (at random for participation). I’m not sure of the prize yet but I promise it will be something lovely and sweet.
