August 29, 2012: Quick Change, Living Room

Maybe it’s the season or maybe just me. Okay, it’s probably me.   I’m constantly moving around stuff in my home.  The past couple of weeks I’ve been switching up my living and dining rooms. Fun Stuff!!! I just like a change every now and then…

Before, I had blue and green accents: the rug, artwork, glassware and pillows. This look is earthy and muted.

After, the color scheme is pretty neutral with hints of green and blue.  To modernize the space I changed up the pillows, artwork, rug and lighting.  The runner I had originally bought for our long hallway, the pillows were stored in a bag under the guest bed and the mantel art was purchased on clearance at GDC.   I had it up in the kid’s play area for a year before I moved it down here…love the message.   The tall floor lamp, octagonal table and accent chair are Habitat finds.   Overall, the room is still very earthy, but it’s the geometric pillows and rug that make the statement and balance the room.  I switched the mirror and textile art from their original walls to brighten the space up as you walk in and replaced the framed geometric art with fish-eye mirrors. All of the main funiture remains in the same position while the accent pieces have been moved around.

Remember, look in your own home first if you want a small change.  A piece of art, a pillow or a collection of accessories will look very different in their new space.  Often, that one piece can be a big inspiration for an even greater change.

REUSE THE BEAUTY OF THE PAST TO CONSERVE WHAT WE HAVE FOR THE FUTURE

STYLE REVIVAL in the Antiques Market on Coleman Blvd will be expanding September 1, this weekend!  New furniture, art, lighting and accessories.  Great gifts for the upcoming season.  Ready for a change in your home this fall, come by and see the new space!
