My chosen room is my living room/dining room combo at my own little abode known as Project Dollhouse. I'm happy to report that some progress has been made on some major design elements. Like the floor. We have one now.
And paint on the walls. Want to know what color it is? If only I knew. I originally painted it Benjamin Moore's Symphony Blue (after I painted 1 coat of Farrow & Ball's Brinjal) and it was a little too intense. Like being trapped in an oil painting. So I added a little of this and a little of that of the leftover paint I had and this is what I got. I would describe it as navy teal, or marine blue. It's darker than it appears in these images, as is the floor.
I also pulled the Craigslist green velvet sofa out of storage so here's a gander at that.
Classic tuxedo with brass nailheads. The craigslist gods were smiling on me that day. My iphone photos do not accurately capture the brilliance that is this sofa.
So, where am I going from here? In the end I'd like to have a space that feels collected, colorful, layered, and mostly classic with a sense of age - but still feels like right now.
Some rooms that are inspiring me:
Are you still with me?
The obligatory mood boards:
I created these mood boards months ago so naturally a few things have changed. Or more than a few things. But I think overall it will have the same feel and color palette.
