Speaking of our table lamp, it’s in mid-costume change right now. The blue and brown swirls weren’t jiving with this room, so I picked up a half yard of this black and white fabric last night and will hopefully get it fitted and presentable today. I’ll just use this tutorial of yore to get ‘er done. Something else of note is that green throw that is lounging over the chair. It was a wedding gift from Chris’s grandma. She MADE it and I jumped at the chance to feature it in this room. It’s beautiful and soft and personal–all things a home should be made of.
We need to hang curtains on that big window, but we think we’ll skip the blinds for now. We love the light pouring in and the clean window lines. And if we change our mind, the curtains will be there for a crutch, if needed. Also, the ottomans will be dressed in mustard fabric before the weekend is through–finger’s crossed. More mirrors and art to hang, yada yada. All that will come in time. Right now, this room doesn’t really belong in this house with the other rooms in their current state, (you can check out more rooms in the house tour) but it is serving as a great entry room for all those folks that drop in. Basically, we are tricking them into thinking that we are superhuman and our whole house is revamped. Ha! I guess that will only last as long as it takes to look past the living room into the adjacent dining room. Wop wop.
