Those Predictable Colors...

I'm predictable when it comes to these things...

I decided to paint the Living Room the same color I painted my bedroom last year... b/c I can't stop wishing I would have in the first place. It's a good color.

A lot of the other colors from my bedroom are making their way into the new Living Room too. I noticed this after browsing through my folders (a real one and one on the computer) of saved items, that were saved b/c I found something in them that I wanted to somehow incorporate into the Living Room...

A few weeks ago, while browsing through some magazines, I fell instantly in love with these two rooms of designer Amy Smilovic (which both happen to use all of my colors). I especially love the rug (something I am having a hard time finding/deciding on for the Living Room)...






.

This week I made a to scale floor plan of the living room and little to scale furniture pieces (which I printed and cut out) and have been playing around with some ideas with the furniture I have so far. It's a tough room b/c of the fireplace and windows/doors placements. The rug is a miniature to scale version of one I am considering and the bookshelves and small table and chairs do not exist yet...

Those are actually the colors I love, too. For walls, I LOVE a ligth gray. I really do consider to paint my hole house that color.

I can't wait to see what you do with all that lovely inspiration, I already love what you've done so far with your house.
