I had a hard time falling asleep last night because I had just so many ideas swirling around in my head of what the downstairs will eventually look like. I have very lofty plans for the living room. It an interesting shape, sort of like a parallegram, and it has two entrances both from the kitchen.
The first time I saw the living room this is what it looked like- so very full of clutter. 3 walls are sort of toupe, and then there’s the deep dried blood colored “accent” wall.. though I’m not quite sure what it is meant to accent. I fell in love with this room despite the clutter- the huge bay window, the built in book nook, the hardwood floors. Then, yesterday, I got to see it again in a far less cluttered state:
Yup, still in love. My goal is to have the 3 toupe walls painted white, and to turn the accent wall into an actual accent wall. I want that wall, and the kitchen that is located in front of the living room, to be a nice pale yellow. It’ll be so bright and sunny in there, perfect for reading (or in my case, internetting). I had dreams of finding a reasonable priced yellow couch for the side of the room opposite the accent wall, but that just doesn’t exist. So now I’m hoarding an overstuffed white Rowe couch in my boxed up apartment instead. I will get a gray slipcover for it. Black coffee tables and end tables. Black shutters up over the couch with yellow framed pictures hanging from them. Hopefully a gray and yellow patterned rug.
Because I’ve packed up my external harddrive, where Photoshop lives, here’s my cheap Paint version of a room plot. I have no idea where to find that yellow chair, but everything else is just Target and Ikea. I love the look of yellow, black, gray, and white. And also, those are the colors of Batman so bonus points there.
