Well, I didn't win the HGTV Sonoma Dream House, so I have to concentrate on my house again, drats! ;)
My dear, impatient husband, Velo has informed me that he wants to start painting our living room this weekend and I still don't know what color to paint it.
Can you help me, please?
Here is the room, in all of its bare glory. It's painted a creamy light green, called "Outback" by Behr. I do like the color, but am in the mood for something new. Also, what you don't see, is behind the couch our little artist colored the walls...plus, we want to lose the fuschia wall in the foyer...otherwise, I wouldn't even bother painting it right now.
We have 2 big windows in this room. What I want to do is have bamboo blinds with silky curtains. I am thinking green or brown. I will defintely hang the curtains taller and wider than the blinds currently are:
Just another corner in the room:
Of course, there is the dilemma of the Iron Work Wall. Right now, I have shimmery copper colored curtains up in front of it. I have more of these curtains, so I could use these on the other 2 windows, but, I am kind of thinking green or brown. So, do I need to match the curtains on the window to these, or can they be different? Hmmmm...
I was thinking a green, brown, cream theme. I was even thinking cream walls, which I am not really sure about because I do love color on the walls...but if I had rich, shiny color on the curtains, the cream walls might work out ok. I'm just not sure. I also love gold, honey, mustard sort of colors, but am not sure that that would work with our sectional, which is a tan/light green sort of color.
I definitely need more lighting and an ottoman, too. We will probably get an upholstered or leather ottoman. And I need a rug, too. Oh, and something on the wall behind the sofa. I need it all! ;)
So, what do you think? Any and all ideas are welcome!
