Living Room

One of the things on my To-Do list is to redecorate the living room. And I'd really like to get it done before my in-law's come in June.

So today I did some "browsing" on the internet to get some ideas. I really should be crocheting...but it's nice to take my mind off it for a little bit.

So, here is what I've found!


This photo is my "inspiration." I love the whole look and feel of the room. The caption reads "
The tradition and elegant Hollywood glamour of the '30s and '40s is back in style and can be seen in living room colors and fixtures. " The dark wood, the gold accents, and the blue chair are my favorites. Now, I do have to work with what I already have, but I think a lot of it will work. I have a dark chocolate brown couch and a dark wood table for my tv and a pretty new dark lamp/table.

And then I found these posters that I would LOVE to frame in gold and hang in the room. I love the one in the blue/gold dress and am thinking of painting one or two of the walls in a similar shade of blue.

Since there is a fairly-open floor plan to my living room/kitchen, the colors would have to flow together well. So I'm thinking the other walls would be a pale tan color.

Now to search for some pretty fabrics (or actual curtains) to match. I'll also be looking for a blue chair and any type of greyhound art I can find! LOL!! Thanks for letting me share and if you have any home decor tips, please let me know!
