Olive Drab, Sea Salt Update and ???
I was going for coastal/modern/cottage. I think the cottage is there but the new rug (thanks raven cajun) and the new drapes push me farther away from coastal/modern. I think I like it anyway.
Still some work to be done. Waiting on walnut top for media cabinets, GC to fix/finish trimwork, DH to settle on which obnoxiously large TV he wants. Then it's on to lamps, accessories, art and maybe a console table/mirror combo near the entry.
Which brings me to my ??? of which there are many.
Should I paint/stain/replace the chunky old plant stand beside the chair?
Once we unrolled the new rug I had to redo the throw pillows. Do they look all right?
With the exception of one big seascape print that will go in the open-to-the-livingroom kitchen area, NONE of my old art pieces work in the new space. They're all either the wrong size, wrong colors or just plain wrong.
I love some of the photo ledge examples I've seen on here lately and think I might be able to use some of my old stuff if I group them with family pics on a couple of ledges behind the sofa but:
1. My floors are not level. Is it possible to install the ledges without accentuating that??
2. There's a mini-split AC unit that also hangs on that wall. I don't want to accentuate that either.
What about the TV wall? DH is thinking 60" tv. I'm thinking he's crazy. I'm also thinking -- how in the heck do you decorate around that?
And ... and ... and ...
I'll stop for now. I've already asked too much.
P.S. Apologies in advance for multiple (and blurry) picture posts. Still too busy/lazy to establish photo sharing account. And STILL haven't found the box with my camera in it. Argh.
