Formal Living Room




So THIS is my formal living room.  Right NOW as it is.  I'm happy enough with it to be able to sit in there and enjoy it.  But, ohhhh the plans I have. 



The rug is a new acquisition, and I love it.  It brings some much needed richness into the space and the color palate is perfecto.  But, that's about where the new ends.  I have many, many, many things to do still here.  Wallpaper (!), pillows, re-upholstery.  A. lot.  So, it's gonna take time....and money.  But, you know how that goes, am I right?   I just want it to feel interesting, and unique, and cozy.  It's just to the right of the front door as you walk in, so it needs to be special. 

Below is my plan...




 I haven't decided if I want to do horizontal stripes or vertical.  I like the horizontal because they aren't something you see everywhere.  But, the vertical might be a little more semi-traditional and might play better with the overall look.  Not sure.  I'll keep thinking on it.  I put the chairs in the board as-is.  They, of course, will be re-upholstered like this...

So that's the plan.  Right now anyway.  You know how I am...things could change at the drop of a hat.  Now, I know, not everyone will like this...and that's totally fine.  But, I do.  And that's what matters.  Hope you have a glorious day!  

Be back with more later.

Your plan is lovely. I have to warn you about painting stripes on the wall. It leaves raised ridges. If you ever decide to repaint you’ll be doing a lot of sanding first.
Maybe put a striped fabric on your chairs instead? Or that Kelly Wearstler fabric “Channels”.
