We are about to overhaul our Formal living room so I thought it was time to share it with you before that happens. We’ve only been in our house about 6 months, but it is truly our HOME. I LOVE it.
I’ve been on a jewel tone kick (dark reds, deep purples, greens, etc) for quite a while and I am transitioning to a lighter more traditional/nautical vibe while some how incorporating all the gorgeous antiques I inherited from my mother in law. This results in a very eclectic style.
The couch is in fantastic condition so we are going to attempt to make a slipcover for it. If we fail miserably we will sell it. We are taking our inspiration from Tator Tots and Jell-O and using drop cloths that we will bleach to the right color. White sofas with kids is all the rage right now and I am jumping on the wagon. In all seriousness it GREAT with kids. You can bleach it clean no matter what. It looks fresh and airy and works with my desired nautical feel.
Here are a few pictures of the space. I am clearly NOT an expert and home decor photography so just bear with me.
