How I convinced my husband to go for this yellow, turquoise, and grey color scheme, I’ll never know. But he is trusting and seems to be liking many of the elements I have chosen so far. He gets to keep his favorite chair so that’s probably all that matters.
We have a somewhat open floor plan on the main floor so I am doing one color scheme for all. You may notice that I love graphic patterns. I just can’t get enough of geometric shapes and bold prints.
The couch pictured above is the actual couch we purchased along with a loveseat and we found it here. The dark couch was a must have in our house. With a dog and our son, it was a necessity. It’s the only thing we have bought so far for the living room.
For the other items I have picked out: The Turquoise Credenza, The area rug may be discontinued but there are several suitable options for an area rug here. Also, there are a few options for the coffee table like this white country chic coffee table or this nice heavy coffee table. A beautiful metal end table like this white metal accent table adds another layer of pattern to the ensemble.
We are planning A LOT of DIYs, course, (and sharing them here) including:
- The fireplace and half of the kitchen bar will be covered in faux stone
- I have asked hubby to build me a coffee table similar to the one above. I want a stocky chest-like coffee table painted in white.
- We also will be mounting the TV on the wall and flank either side with custom made shelves that go floor to ceiling with an entertainment center and shelf underneath.
- Wall art projects, picture framing, stencils, sewing pillow covers, and much more.
Stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks!
