Lately I have been sucked in to designing some rooms on Polyvore again. It is a good distraction. I certainly could put my time to better use but we all need an outlet right?!?
Lots of friends are re-designing spaces and so I’ve had fun thinking about what would I do. Confession, I do that a lot, I go to other peoples houses and secretly I am re-designing in my head. Not that anything is wrong with their current space but I just see the possibilities. Ahhh…probably why I love TV shows like Fixer Upper.
Space number one is a living room space. I have a friend in search for new furniture so l came up with a plan for a brighter space using cheerful accessories and neutral furniture. She likes earth tone colors and is drawn to bigger scale furniture to accommodate her sweet dogs. I love the idea of the Ikea Ektorp sofa in grey with the chaise on the end. That is a good piece for lounging and the smaller chairs are good for company. My first idea was a bright rug that would really pop on her new wood floors.
I wanted to see it with a neutral rug, which I like much better. I think this makes it look more relaxed. I love the pops of color with orange, yellow, and blue.
On to the next space, a teen lounge, another friend is turning her dining space into a teen lounge for her daughter and son and I think this is such a fun idea. The use of a daybed makes a great seating area. I included a desk for homework and shelves for storage of gadgets and books. Red, yellow, and blue are perfect for a gender neutral and this family loves the lake and beach so I include pillows and art that tie into a theme.
What do you think?
Now…off to plan my living room….it’s coming people!! I bought 20 yards of fabric to have my couch re-upholstered. Maybe by Christmas I will have it finished! I just need to decide how much I really want to splurge on a leather chair…eek!
Have a great week!
