It's getting that time a year, where I feel just about as good as the weather... I was sitting in my living room the other day, and I couldn't help but think that the room looked dirty, and cold. Since I was feeling a bit off, I decided it was time for a change.
Now for most people, that would mean getting their hair cut or coloured, going shopping for some new threads, but not me.... I'm more of a "let's redecorate my house" type of girl. First things first. I mentioned it to my husband. Let me tell you that went over like a ton of bricks! AGAIN!!! he said, what will this be the 3rd time you changed this colour?? (5th actually, but who's counting?) Now where to start... I know let's look at pinterest!!! Day's went by of laying in bed at night scrolling up and down and pinning and jotting down ideas. OK I think I have a plan.
I'll start with a new couch and chair.... Now I know what you are thinking.."Cheryl that's a bit much", BUT, in my defense, we were actually talking about getting a new couch, so great timing! Now I'm gonna lighten the walls up. Right now they are Benjamin Moore Stormy Monday. A very dark grey, or gray, whichever spelling you use! ;) I have decided on Benjamin Moore Balboa Mist. It's a light grey/beige, so it feels a bit warmer! Yet lighter!
It's nice huh? Now because I own a husband and a dog and of course my cats, my furniture HAS to be dark! I purchased the Mariager Sofa bed from Jysk Canada here..www.jysk.ca/furniture/living-room-furniture/sofas-sofa-beds-futons/mariager-sofa-bed-dark-grey.html I think that will hide all the hair and soils etc that come with loving animals!
Now to find a matching chair. I haven't quite got that yet, but I will be sourcing it out at the local Home Sense Stores! They are my go to for all things home related! I know I will be apt to find something that matches there.. Next are my ideas for the rest of the room!
I want to build a wall unit! White, where else to get that but Ikea! I'm thinking the Liatorp line in white will work great! I can house all my trinkets and dust collectors in the tall cases while my tv will sit in the middle on the sideboard!
Now to just finish off with a few pillows and succulents and trinkets and Voila... A new space!
Sounds easy doesn't it? Well we will see once I get started! I, of course, will take photos of the finished project! Am I missing anything? What is your thoughts on the paint choice?
Until Next time...........
