Creating A Room. Update.


Before Christmas I was on a roll Creating A Space.  My Living Room.  Now, I mentioned that this is no formal living space.  This is really a family room.  And while I wanted to keep it fresh and bright my kids were worried when I painted the walls Benjamin Moore Linen White.  My vision was to keep the slate clean and bring my color pop in with furnishings and soft goods.

I put a halt on this space once the Christmas tree went up ... but the back design story was still moving.  And in came my TigerTiger.

I have some really traditional furniture in here that I wanted to keep, but stuffy traditional is not my vibe.  I want it to be fun and make me smile when I pass by.  Jim Thompson's TigerTiger adds a little whimsy and I believed it was high time I introduced some bouillon fringe into my world.

The fabric is LUSCIOUS.  No kidding. It is soft and I stuffed a giant down pillow insert inside so that I know for certain there will be teenage girls sleeping more comfortably on the sofa while they binge-watch Netflix.

**Quick Tip**  Did you know the best looking pillows are stuffed with an insert that is larger than the pillow?  My rule of thumb ... 18" pillow gets a 20" insert. 20" pillow gets a 22" insert.  

And So On.

Happy Hump Day my friends.  I'll be back outside with the shovel today getting strong arms!

Creating a Room ... the One Sided Curtain Reveal.

While my room is still in process Christmas starting happening and now I am decorating around non decorated things!

But here you go ... a view of my "one sided" window panels.  I have to say that I really am liking them.  I had a definite negative thought process while it was happening!

And your first sighting of my Navy Corduroy Sofa from Duralee.  It is rocking our world.  I had to move kids, remotes, blankets, homework notebooks, etc to even get this photo.  The use it has already received tells me I did good!! ( at least in my childrens' eyes!).

My Thomas Paul by Duralee fabric gives a clean crisp color block on my walls and I added the wide navy band to ground the "sweetness"!

The area needs more zhushing ... pillows, etc.  Fabrics chosen and a special little addition that I think will make perfect sense to all of you ... 

Who doesn't need a little TigerTiger in their life?
