Even more of a challenge is that I have 2700 square feet to decorate. The task, although exciting, is rather daunting. I'm going to start with thinking up my living room inspiration, since I have a feeling we'll be in there a lot. We're going to purchase a brand new living room set (yay!) so here's how I want it to feel.
1. Neutral palette with subtle pops of color.
2. Mixing styles (think eclectic)
3. Light, airy, and relaxing.
4. Get inspired by realistic things I can do in my living room.
Here's some inspiration.
|This is what I'm talking about when I say neutral palette with subtle pops of color.|
|This may be a little too green, but it's neutral-y green.|
|Perfect example of mixing patterns and textures.|
|I kind of love this one the most because it has examples of everything I want - particularly the mixing of styles to make it feel truly eclectic.|
|I like how the furniture is dark but the room still feels light. We have a lot of dark woods, so hopefully we can accomplish this throughout our house, in general.|
|Now this is just lovely.|
|I'm not crazy about that artwork above the fireplace, but our house does have a fireplace with windows on either side like this. This is just to show how I love the placement of those curtains.|
|Wonderful mix of different types of woods.|
|Love the gray wall color around the fireplace.|
What inspires you to decorate your home? Are there any sites (besides Pinterest) that I should be looking at to get ideas, tips, and more inspiration? This is a big task!
