Living Room- During

Today I know two things for sure.
One- I need a wide angle lens so that I can properly photograph my rooms.
And two- My living room is in desperate need of the stuff I call “spice”.
I am stuck in that yucky “my-room-is-a-blank-canvas-because-funds-are-tight-right-now” phase.
Not to mention, I haven’t decided which accent color(s) I’m going to use in here.
The Kitchen and Dining Rooms, which are open to the Living Room, are going to be accented with green. The Reading Room and Guest Bedroom, which are just a few steps away, are accented with blue. I can’t decide if I should go blue, green, a combination of both colors (to tie the two sides of the house together), or do something else entirely. Maybe red? What do you all think? I LOVE reading your comments, and welcome all suggestions! :-)





I should mention, the entertainment unit has not, I repeat, NOT been accessorized yet. I just threw some things on, and in it, for the time being. Also, I plan to get a new coffee table, and replace the giant mirror with three, vertical ones, hung a foot or so apart.

    Hello ,
    The room is amazing of course.
    I think that the mantel could use some great salvaged brackets corbels what ever you like to call them , it would add some bulk with that amazing mantel.
    Can’t wait to see what other things you do.

    I would vote for using both blue and green. Or you could use blue in spring/summer and green fall/winter. Use a slightly different shade of blue and/or green than the other rooms so it’s not too matchy-matchy but would flow. I like the idea of using “flow” colors but adding in another accent for “pop”.

    Your home is beautiful! :)

    Blessings, Stacey


    What a skill…it is beautiful! I love your couch, where did you get it? I am looking for a new one and I was at restoration hardware and I saw gorgeous pillows (on sale) in browns and blues and tans that would give your couch a touch of color! check it out…
