Here are some of the changes to my living room. This is just the start. I want to add some color to this room and I am working on bringing in some color to the creams and whites.
Part One the New Slipcover:
|Lisa Harmon made my last white slipcover and now I received this beautiful Ivory/Natural color slipcover for my sectional. It is made in a 12 oz denim that washes so nice. It comes out softer with each washing just like your favorite pr. of blue jeans. You also can throw these into the dryer and they will not shrink. I know peeps that have slipcovers and they had to put them on the sofa or chair wet. That would drive me crazy so it is nice these do not shrink. Lisa pre washes and shrinks the fabric before sewing.|
Lisa does amazing work and does everything by measurement and pictures and she is fast too. So if you are in need of a slipcover for your chair, couch or sectional I would highly recommend Lisa. Lisa is so sweet and will work with and make your piece custom and unique. Here is her Etsy Site.
|I had Lisa make this in a light ivory/natural color this way I can add any color to the room and have it compliment the ivory slipcover. I have creams and whites in this room now but I am thinking of bringing in some light blue and aqua.|
Country Curtains where I get most of the drapes in my home are coming out with a beautiful blue and also a tan buffalo check pattern drape this fall. I am excited to see the light blues in the buffalo check to maybe start the addition of some color. It is so hard to find the buffalo check in the lighter blue and tans. So I am excited to see what Country Curtains comes out with.
|Yep my little decor assistant likes to lay all over my sectional so a blanket is a must on the sectional and a fabric like the heavy weight denim that is soft and washes easily. Just keeping it real!|
|This is the back of the sectional. In time the box pleat will lay nicer and be a more definite box pleat look. Just have to work on it a little bit.|
|So this is a good start to the living room to get my chippy whites and creams and now to wait on the drapes and some other things to bring in some color.|
|This is my corner chair where I read and nap! That chair is really comfy.|
|I framed out my wall sconces with these old vintage white frames.|
|I have the old arched window and chippy shutters on the wall for a focal point.|
|My old vintage window and Our Nest sign hung over the corner chair. These hearts hanging on the window are made from old metal ceiling tiles and the bling on them is old crystals.|
|Hung this chandelier over the library table instead of a table lamp.|
|This is the old vintage door I got from Jeanine Chippy Shabby at the Elkhorn Flea Market. Love the chippiness to this old door piece. Thank you Jeanine it looks awesome hanging over my old library table.|
|I will finish up with my front entry way. Some of you may not have seen it before. I love the old chippy shutters and my old garden gate hung in the entry.|
|My little love birds in their cage that is framed out with a vintage frame.|
|My old chippy chair by the front door.|
