When cold weather approaches, I tend to gravitate more and more toward cozy homey rooms. I found one of my all time favorites on Better Home and Gardens web site this week.
I am totally in love! White upholstery, chocolate brown walls, and the perfect touches of color.
Here’s another shot.
So I thought, hummmm…….what would it take to REALLY recreate this room? So lets say we’re starting with an unlimited budget. Might as well, since I can MAYBE afford a couple yards of fabric and not much else! HAHA
I think I’ll just order some burlap drapes from Ballard's……
Then……how about a couple of chairs, also from Ballard's
Perfect! Of course we’ll have to repaint and reupholster, but what the heck! We do have that unlimited budget!
And that Kilim rug……YUMMY!
That’s pretty close. And it’s ONLY $2200.00! So if we don’t love it….no biggie. Maybe the dog can sleep on it! HA
The white chair and sofa…Ikea, of course. We’ll just pick up a chair and loveseat/chaise
Oh oh….we’ll probably order the ottoman too, even though we’re going to reupholster it with that yummy Hounds Tooth fabric.
How are we doing so far?
LOVE the mirrors on either side of the window. But I may want an antiqued gold frame on mine, so I think I’ll shop around town for those. They do look perfect though, don’t you think? The way that they reflect light with the dark walls.
We’ll paint our favorite drop leaf table with chalk paint, Paris Gray. And order this lamp from Restoration Hardware.
Love that Zinc base, how about you? I think it retails for around $300.00.
The coffee table is just cute as can be with those little French style legs. We’ll shop the local antique malls for the perfect one and then paint it our favorite turquoise.
Same with the chandie. We might even pretend to be thrifty and paint an old brass chandelier.
The only hounds tooth fabric that I could find was this one.
Love the texture, but it’s not a dark enough chocolate. And we DO need the perfect color so that we can have our paint color matched. I think the Damask and the Hounds Tooth must have come from the same fabric group. I REALLY did search and search for them. If anyone out there has seen them, let me know. I seriously would love a yard or two of each.
Accessories…..I can work on those later. Right now I’m just exhausted from all of this hard work shopping!
I can see changing those burnt orange pillows to maybe red at Christmas and hot pink for Spring/Summer. How about you?
I had great fun shopping with all of you girls this evening! Have a happy weekend.
