The room is still evolving. However, it is the first time it has felt pretty to me.
One day, I would like to get new couches instead of our sectional. I made it two pieces because the room is quite awkwardly shaped and the sectional divided the room uncomfortably. My husband hates the way it looks, but I think it makes more sense.
Also while we did paint and stencil our master bedroom and our son's room (pictures soon to come), the green came with the house. I would prefer a pretty cream, but didn't want to invest the time/money into painting the room.
I plan on making a big typography board for over the couch.I picked up the rad antelope (I think that's what it is) and the milk glass at an antique shop for cheap. I initially planned on painting the antelope gold, but once I got it home, I fell in love with it just the way it is. I just bought that plant last Monday. It is already on its way out. I have watered it and it is right next to screen doors and a window where we get a lot of sun. Any thoughts?
I love these pretty books without their covers. The bird was on clearance at Z Gallerie. I'm pretty sure it is supposed to be a napkin ring.Our master dresser that I bought at a thrift store for $35 included this side table. I painted it up real pretty and added another $0.75 Crate and Barrel mirror on top. The balls are Styrofoam with push pins. I only made one, my mother-in-law made the rest. She's so awesome. The deer candle holders were thrift store finds that I spray painted. The lampshade was on sale at Target.
Our fireplace is a pretty dark spot in the room so I added as much white as possible to lighten it up. I also loaded up our non-functioning fireplace with candles to make it feel romantic and warm.
Do you have any cool typography ideas? Do you shop at thrift stores/antique shops? Are there any particular items you always look for? How the freak do you keep plants alive???
