I will be the 1st to admit I am at loss on what to do with these big walls. I really am. Every idea I have had an idea it just seem to get lost on the walls.
Here is the old layout of the room. I was already in the the process of moving things out of the way when I realized :maybe I should "take before pics and blog about it". Typical me :)
The other half of the room (the one you walked up too) is considered the dining room. Here is view from the far wall looking into the dining/kitchen area. These were taken before the kitchen paint job. Notice the balloons hanging from the chandelier?
And now for the new layout.
View from the back wall looking into the kitchen. The plan for that room is a new dining set and a new lighting fixture. I already have a ton of inspiration pictures saved for that project but one room at a time.
I put away the orange floral pillows (in the above picture) since those are my warm weather pillows. I now have these beauties on the couch. $15 for 2 at Ross. I also placed the rug that was under the dining set, under the sectional. It's a temporary fix until we get a new rug. Notice the faux fur brown throw? I love the look of these colors together but the brown rug made it to dark in this corner.
There is still so much I want to do with these 2 rooms. First off - a new rug under the couch and I love love me some animal prints. Zebra and leopard are my absolutely favorite! So it would make sense to have the new rug be a brown zebra stripe rug. It's super stylish and pretty much timeless and it definitely scream "Me" all over it. My only fear is this rug might be too light for the space. There is, and trust me I know, a whole lot of beige in this room.
So a solution might be to perhaps use the same pattern but in a darker shade?
I actually do have a vision for the this room. I mean what kind of person would I be to go into this all willy nilly with these rooms? :-) It's based loosely on this inspirational picture from Decorpad. I just love how each color in this picture pops. Notice the browns, oranges and touches of turquoise? That's my vision.. to incorporate all of these colors into my space and have them POP. I figure right now I have a blank canvas with all the beiges, so on to the colors.
So let me have it. What do you think about the new layout and the plans for the space? I would love to hear your feedback!
