Living Room Inspiration

Living room inspiration is here! I have to say, I don't really have a clear picture for color scheme at the moment. I'm really waiting for that jumping off point. I know sort of what colors I want the walls to be, and I have a clear picture of what needs to go into the room, but as far as accents - not really there yet.

Let's start with what's in the room. In the next picture these are the items that are most likely staying: the rug, chair (there's two of them), sofa, grey and white pillows, garden stool, and probably the bench.

And here's the rest of my inspiration.

Okay, so I'm going for the gray fireplace. All the way up to the top just like that inspiration picture. Except these are the tiles I've chosen for the surround.


I dream of those little gold sconces at night. I worry they're too matchy-matchy with my existing rug, but we'll see where I end up. I don't envision them above the fireplace, rather on either side of a window or the big doorway that connects the dining room. For the overhead lighting I want something very subdued, can't take away any jazz from my built in wall or sconces.

Right now, I'm learning toward gray, black, and navy accents - and still waiting on another color to pop into my radar. Maybe a light blue?

Did anyone notice the bead board ceiling? Yep, doing that too! Cannot wait to give this room something to smile about. I'll have some demo pictures to share tomorrow! We tackled that yesterday and I'm even more ready than ever to put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

Have a great Tuesday everybody!!
