Changing up the Living Room

Monday, July 20, 2015


Shortly after buying our house, I posted my renovation ideas for the downstairs rooms. I found this Amy Butler fabric and thought it would make pretty curtains, but I wasn't 100% in love with the fabric. When I buy things for my house, I have to be absolutely in love with it.

When I'm coming up with a plan for my personal projects, I usually start with fabric as a jumping off point. In April I bought a new rug, and I was having trouble find a curtain fabric to go with the rug, probably because I was working backwards from my typical procedure. Note to self: always start with a fabric.

I took a look at my Pinterest Fabric board, and I realized that I posted this Waverly fabric three different times. 

 I have loved this fabric for years, and I have the same fabric in a different colorway on my dining room chairs (by the china cabinet). I've decided to use this fabric for my living room curtains, and here's what I'm thinking about for the rest of the room:
Paint Color: Benjamin Moore Moonshine. This is the current color of the room, and it's a blue-grey.

Yellow rug from Ikea. I'll move the existing rug to a different room.

Finn (I just love the name!) loveseat

New West Elm light fixture. We actually already bought this and installed it, but I haven't taken any recent photos of the living room.

I want to keep our existing lamps and paint them navy and get a new lamp shade from Etsy.

I've already ordered the curtain fabric, and I can't wait to get started on this next project!
