Enough with the whining, right? Even though I'm a little sad to say goodbye to a home I've loved so much, it's hard to stay sad for long when there are so many lovely new rooms to design. When I think about what I want our new living room to look like, these words come to mind: Neutral. High Contrast. Transitional.
Here's a mock-up of what I'm imagining. The botanical art is from vintageprintable.com. The art is in the public domain, and it's sized to print at home on standard letter size paper. I'd like to print lots of these prints, and hang them in a big group. The end tables, lamps, and ottoman are from Uttermost. I'd like to use an ottoman as a coffee table, because it looks so cozy, but I'm wondering if it works well in practice. Anyone? Do ottomans actually work well as coffee tables?
At any rate, I have my work cut out for me. Right now, the room looks like this. Our painters are so good, and I'm really excited by the progress.
