design board: living room

living rm design plan

I have been thinking long and hard about this one. Only recently have I come up with the colours that really inspired me. And because I have been constantly coming up with ideas based on the theory that I will buy a new much more modern sofa. My designer’s block about the colours and overall feel was cured when I finally realized I need to design around our current sofa. (The one pictured is quite close.) The ah-hamoement arrived! I know you are all thinking, of course you’d plan around your current sofa, but then that hardly makes it a plan, now doesn’t it?

Here is the Reese sofa from Room and Board that I have initially been designing around. I LOVE the lines on this sofa! Now you see how it would change the room dramatically.

A few key pieces, the Madeline Weinrib rug, Koch and Lowy floor lamps, morrocan pouf, and the fluffy goodness of the ikat, suzani, velvet and watercolour pillows! The art in the photo is only a mock up, as the real piece I am begging for a custom made giant work of art from the Prof’s little sister, our budding artist! It will be magical and really set the tone for the room. What do you think?
