MAKING SELECTIONS FOR MY LIVING ROOM February 3, 2012 After almost 6 years in my house, I’m fiiinally getting around to doing something about my living room. It’s a long narrow space that connects to my dining room and I’ve had close to a million ideas about things I could do, but never anything I really loved. It’s never as easy as you would think for me, because I’m constantly finding vintage things I absolutelycannotnowaynohow live without, until I run across the next piece I feel the same way about. So instead of focusing on the details, I’m starting big and working my way down. Chairs, pillows, piping, banding, drapery/roman shades. Adding black accents for my dining room. I’m keeping my tuxedo-style sofa and having 3 vintage chairs reupholstered. The lavender geometric print and lavender solid are for these chairs: Which were in perfect condition but clearly not going to work with anything I had planned. Seating is at a premium in my itty-bitty living room, so I’m getting rid of an old armoire and replacing it with my soon-to-be-fab club chair. I also moved my vintage sputnik chandelier from the entry to the LR got rid of a sisal rug swapped a vintage Henredon coffee table for round glass & brass number, vintage of course moved a chest with no clear home to the garage where it belongs And all of this means I should have a pretty rockin’ reveal. Chairs will be done next week!
