We're getting the Christmas tree tomorrow, and since the living room will be a wreck during the process of stringing lights and decorating, I thought I'd share a few snapshots here. I might have mentioned how much I love the color yellow. This is the same shade as the master bedroom—filtered light. Honestly, it just makes me feel better about everything. So does the fabric on the windows.
Fabric was a big decision because I knew these custom drapes would be a huge (and permanent) investment, yet I didn't want to play it safe. I wanted something cheerful and happy but a little formal, too. It is a living room, after all, and while I want guests (and my kids) to feel comfortable, I also expect that they'll behave themselves in this room.
Since the vistas are pretty, I didn't want much coverage. Just embellishment for the windows. I ordered some fabric from Calico Corners and the rest at a much cheaper price online. The desk is yet another antique we inherited from my hubby's parents. Chairs, too. They were covered in bright red velvet, which I'd intended to keep, but the fabric was stained. I'm proud to say I recovered these myself. The sales lady at Calico (bless her heart!) instructed me every step of the way.
I was extra proud of that trim! The pillow I purchased, though. Look closely at the fringe on the Oriental. This is a scary confession, but I actually comb it.
I'll stop chattering and let you browse a minute…
Thanks for visiting:-)
