Living Room – Complete 180
Remember how we were looking for a grey sectional? Well, over the weekend we stopped in at Value City Furniture and fell in love with a Sofa, Loveseat & Recliner set. Which in no way is grey, it’s brown… Chocolate Brown. I about had a design panic attack that night thinking about what I’d do with brown. As most of you know, I’m an outdoorsy, nature girl. So, you’d think I’d love the color brown. But in reality, I have no idea what to do with it – until I came across this.
Below you can see that I changed a few things up about it. I added burlap texture (I have a plan for a lamp shade) and a white ceramic color (more plans for lamps and accents). I have to admit though, that I really love the direction that we are starting to go. I always imagined a lot of greys and blues, but I’m loving that I’m coming out of my comfort zone and having some fun with our space. It definatly changes all of my ideas for when we have a house (except for a craftsman exterior. Mwahaha, Poor Travis.) & since we are starting to go with more nature inspired colors, that gives me some good excuses to buy some things featuring raccoons. ;)
By the way, i re-did the “to-do list” on here, let me know what you think. :)
