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!
