I have been in the process of trying to lighten up our living room as of late...why? Because it was brown...brown...brown...brown...brown. Now, brown is my absolute favorite color - and I think it goes with anything - but it was truly overtaking the room... (this is where I think...umm...why didn't I take a photo of this?)
Anyway, I was reading through Better Homes & Gardens a few weeks ago and there was a designer that was making-over a reader's living room...she (the designer) described the room as "the most boring room ever" and the paint as "the dullest color known to man." Hmmmm...I do believe that I have that exact paint color on my walls. And, like me, the lucky makeover room lady had mostly brown items in her living room. I walked into my living room and tried to look at it with a different eye...I stood at my front door and looked into the room, trying to see it as a stranger might. I'll tell ya...it was terribly boring.
Soooo, now I'm on a quest to change things up a bit...paint will have to come later, but in the meantime, here's a little quick-fix I whipped up last night...
|...see...even from this small little glimpse, you can see how everything is pretty much the same color...I'm gettin' there, I'm getting there...baby steps, folks.|
New pillows have a way of just freshening up a room...I adore them and find myself switching them up all the time. This little shabby ruffle cover was a cinch to make, and didn't take too long. I think I'll make another (smaller) one for one of the club chairs on the opposite side of the room...anyone interested in a tutorial?
EDITED: Tutorial now available on my sidebar...check it out!
