Color Infusion

Infusions happen slowly right?  Because that’s how I feel about the progress in the living room.  I LOVE the new pillows, although I’m contemplating adding one or two more to the mix.

I also recovered the coffee table / ottoman & I LOVE the grey dots!  My only complaint is that is shows all the rug fibers that get transferred when we bum around with our feet on the table.

I do think I need to add some more color & life to this room & here are some of the options I’m considering

  1. Switch B&W pictures above couch out for color versions
  2. Paint grey frame over bookcase – I’m thinking navy blue
  3. Dye rattan chair cushion covers dark blue
  4. Figure out a way to add curtains over the ugly blinds
  5. Switch out the side table lamp for something more colorful & modern

Notice those two blue and red blankets draped over the sofa arms?  They are our “African blankets.”  Best travel souvenir EVER.  They are super warm and cuddly & they go in the washer & the dryer without a problem – which is good because Penny also things they’re super warm and cuddly!


One thought on “Color Infusion

  1. I like the idea of switching out the prints over the sofa for color ones. I LOVE b&w prints, but I can definitely see some color there livening up the room. And curtains are always a fun way to add some excitement to a room…..I need some to make my dining room less sleepy.
