Living Room

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ashley Hawthorne @ 7:04 pm

These are some thoughts for how i will decorate the living room.  It is very open to the kitchen, which has whitish quartz countertops and charcoal gray cabinets.  The walls are a pretty cool neutral (Benjamin Moore Moonshine), so most of my selections are very WARM.  Balancing cool and warm keep things from being too sterile or either too traditional.  we’ve all had overdose of khakki in the past several years, so using a gray-er wall paint is an attempt at making it feel more updated.  We have ALMOST finished painting this room, so i’ll get pics!  I’m pretty sure the floors will all be painted white for now.  this will give it a sort of gallery feel.  I’m excited!  We’ll eventually put some kind of floor down but the painting is something i need to get out of my system.  I cannot decide if I want a pattern painted or just a solid clean white.  Decisions, decisions!  I need to take some progress pics soon!  I seem to be live life covered in paint these days 🙂

  4. I love the cowhide rug! In fact, I want one too! But, I don’t know where to put it! Under our dining table? Coffee table? I guess I have no grasp of how big it is lol! Love the black & white chairs. I want something similar in our master room!

  5. Can I just say that I’m pretty pumped to see how this commissioned painting turns out. Not to mention that I love that you’re painting the floors.

  6. The cowhide rug looks like a Rorschach ink blot test! I love how fancy you are…having a painting commissioned.
