Living Room Ideas

This room started as a clean slate.  It has wood floors and lots of molding so very good bones for a 1993 home.   So far we have painted the walls Farrow and Ball Pigeon and had a custom sized natural rug made in a basket weave pattern.  Below is what I am thinking for this space.  It will probably changes 100 times but that is the beauty with this blog, I get to reflect and see my space evolve.

So the plan…
As previously posted I want to have four chairs that sit around an ottoman.  I would like either the chairs or the ottoman to be tufted…still deciding on that.  I know I want my chairs to be a solid fabric and bring pattern in the accessories and pillows.  This is smart because I am one who gets bored of pattern quickly.  Eventually I want to have some sort of storage piece and the end of the room to put lamps on.  If I was loaded I would do built ins and create bookshelves…but I am not so a chest or something of that nature will suffice.  A cabinets with glass or antique mirrored doors might be neat.  But that piece {whatever it may be} is not happening in 2011!



So I am thinking a linen for the chairs, a brown mohair tufted ottoman, silk drapes in both the living and dining room, Visual comfort vendome double sconces in antique brass, and right now I am loving this Galbraith and Paul patterned fabric for pillows.  This is just the *start* of what I am thinking!
{Sorry for the terrible photos below - I took them before work and it is clear that I was in a rush!}

Current state of this space - EMPTY!

Walls where we will have sconces (the doubled size).  One for each baby wall opening up into the Dining Room.
