Now that we have some paint on our walls, I am just itching to start decorating! (Even though I know we have some more major projects to complete before that happens) In the meantime though… why not satisfy the decorating itch with a room mock-up?
It looks pretty stellar, right?? I incorporated a blue velvet couch, which I’m hoping is an upcoming project of mine in the near future. (With the actual one being converted into a sectional!) Also there is a comfy, cozy leather chair that adds some warmth to the room, along with the hickory floors that are soon to be laid.
I wanted to add lots of gold elements in this room. Some rooms it’s iffy whether or not they can pull off the gold look, but with the dark, glossy walls, I figure this room has as good a chance as any 🙂
I’d love to do some emerald green curtains on the windows and some graphic artwork over the couch with a few fun pillows added into the mix. Notice the circular end table in the corner: we already have this piece. It’s a beautiful cherry end table Jake made in high school.
Here is the room from another angle (I know what you’re thinking; and yes, I do have entirely too much time on my hands 😉 ) You can see our TV (which we do not yet own…) is flanked by two gold sconces to add additional lighting and dramatic effect. I’m loving the black console with a slight Asian influence.
Notice the two black and white striped chairs alongside the console… So pumped! I’ve been wanted to reupholster something like this forever. And I already have some Craigslist chairs in mind. 😉
And that light… I just picked it randomly from a google search, but I’ve since fallen in love with it. With a price tag that flirts with one thousand dollars, I do not see this light fixture in my near (or distant) future… I’ve been racking my brain all day to try and figure out a DIY for it. So far all my ideas are just way too complicated… but maybe someday I’ll figure it out and have my ‘golden leaf bowl’ light. 🙂
By the way, I made those mock-ups using just Microsoft Word and Paint. Pretty cool right? No fancy photoshop tools necessary 🙂
