Living Room Ideas, New House Series

The living area is at the front of the house and right next to the dining room, so I wanted to make sure that the color palette was complimenary.   (but not matchy matchy!)

I didn't take the best pictures of this room, the light wasn't working with me.  This picture is taken from the family room/hall way area.

This picture was taken standing in the dining room.

Here is the floor plan AGAIN!

Wall color, Hazel, isn't it lovely?  I think it will look great next to the green in the dining room.

Love seat from Ikea, $379.  I'm going to place this facing the window, with it's back to the dining room.  I'll probablaly reuse some of the pillows from my living area now to put on the love seat.

Chair from Ikea $249 each.  These will be placed in front of the window facing the love seat.  I'm going to reuse my trunk and lamp from down stairs to sit between the two chairs.

Slipcover color, adds a little warmth, and isn't as bright as the white.  We all know how scared of white I am, this is a good baby step for me, and it can be washed.  Who knows by the time we move in, I may be over my fear, but just in case this is the color for now!

Exibit A, the trunk.  I think the burlap runners will stay and a few of the accessories, but a few things will either be sold or put some where else in the house.  The barn pictures are going to be hung on the one wall in the living area.  The frames are going to match perfectly with the frames I'm using in the dining room.  The pillows will be reused in the living room too.

Close up of the lamp, I LOVE this lamp!  I'm pretty sure the bird house, clock and wicker tray aren't making the cut in this room, but we shall see.

Curtains rods, same as the dining room.

Curtains, also same as the dining room.

Same shade of white for them too.  I thought it would make it look like one big room having the matching window hardware and coverings, instead of two smaller rooms.

Roman Shades

So there you have it, the living room.  What do you think?

Love the living room too!!!! I like the light slip covered chairs and love seat. They are so good for cleaning and can be changed as you like. Hey they even have websites that make slipcovers from any fabric you like for Ikea chairs and stuff, very cool if you feel the need for a statement piece in the future.
