Living Room Reveal: A Whole New Look With A Few Changes

When updating a room, sometimes all that is needed are a few changes, not a total makeover. Such was the case with my friend, Maureen's living room. This linen floral was used for new drapes which brought the new and existing furniture together, creating a whole new look.

Her recent art acquisition with its turquoise weathered frame was my inspiration when I chose the drapery fabric. The painting now looks much better over the fireplace!

The brown in the floral drapes allowed for more brown in the room like two new leather club chairs which replaced existing, dated tapestry chairs. A brown cowhide rug layered over existing seagrass brings in even more brown. A new blue throw and a new blue rug in the entryway (not shown) ties it all together.

The one thing that didn't change was the rose colored damask sofa. With the addition of the new drapes and new pillows, it looks as good as new.

Maureen loves florals like me and is thrilled with this linen fabric.
Ward is thrilled with the leather chairs.
Something feminine and something masculine! Everyone is happy!

You do have a good eye. I like the rich worn colors of the curtain fabric, they do feel warm and settled and match the painting perfectly!

I just joined as a follower and look forward to reading more, as well as delving into the past posts.
