our Living Room REDO

April 15, 2010

So as some of you know, my hubby and I had the house on the market for a while, but recently took it off the market for a while. We decided to embrace our little historic colonial for a couple more years! Since we decided to stay, I said “we MUST redo the livingroom!”. We started out with a few hand-me-downs and added a few pieces of our own. I’m ready for a change and with that comes new paint, furniture, colors and accessories. As I’m typing, I hear the hustle bustle of the painters working away at
our new paint color for the livingroom, piano/sunroom and main hallway.
Here’s our paint color from Benjamin Moore { Crystalline }.

Still trying to decide on what color scheme to coordinate with the wall color, but I love the idea of incorporating NAVY. Thoughts?
Love this Rug in Navy Stripe Striped Rug from Ballard Designs:
Now for the couch. This has been a struggle because our furniture shopping in Savannah is very limited for the type of look we’re going for. We want a clean look on the edges and shape, but want it to be comfortable and deep-set. Here’s one we found online at one of our local retailers,24e. They have another one in the window that I just love so looks like we might be going there this weekend!

Also, love this one from Pottery Barn, but does anyone know if this is super comfy?
Like…the kind of comfy that you just sink dow
n into and want to read a book?
And maybe throwing in a little orange? or what accent color? Perhaps kelly green?
I dream about this Nixon throw from Jonathan Adler:
This pillow from ZGallerie:

This pillow from local Savannah’s Number Four Eleven {FAB store by the way!}
and an Accent Chair beside my banana leaf plant!
