I’ve been so busy lately, if you threw a random date at me I can probably tell you which day of the week it falls on without looking at a calendar. That’s how much I’ve had to keep track of in my planner these days. The blogger solution for a busy life and no time for creativity? Why, share all of the google images I’ve saved in my bookmarks.
A big project has been decorating my new living room mainly in all white. Whilst it now looks clean and fresh, it does look a bit empty, so I’m looking for ideas of things to put on the walls. I love the idea of hanging vintage posters on a white wall – something about the old-fashioned style contrasting with the crisp, modern white really appeals to me. I was actually thinking about repainting my walls too, to just exaggerate that neat, clean and fresh feel to the room. Over the years, paint can scratch and mark and sometimes it just removes that tidy feel to the room. If I do go ahead with this I will definitely be hiring in a professional like the ones from https://www.gregunsethpainting.com/interior-painting-colorado-springs/ because I don’t reckon it would be such a good idea if I did it myself – I’m too shaky for all that cutting in! I’ve become quite obsessed with this project and with all of the white furniture I’ve come across, but I hadn’t stopped to consider that having EVERYTHING in white might be a bit much. I do still want mainly white though, so I’ve been busy searching for antique furniture in all-white. White is timeless and goes well with practically any accent color, but the antique age of it should add character in the same way as my vintage posters will. When it comes to interior design, everyone has their preferences, so of course everyone’s home is going to look completely different, even with inspiration they may have found online. I found my inspiration in the Domino book of decorating and can’t find it anywhere online, but the photo below is another one that stuck out at me. The sheer white panels give an airy feel that I just love! I can’t wait to share all of my DIY furiniture painting projects next month when I’m finally finshed with everything.
Dress forms in the living room, office, or entry way are another one of my most recent decorating favorites. I’ve found that Craigslist is a great place to find used dress forms. I plan to layer my necklaces on it and placing it in a corner of the living room.
Low cubical book cases have easily become a favorite, especially when they extend to cover the entire area of the wall.
I remember having a real sheepskin rug in our house growing up and having a love-hate relationship with it. Interestingly enough, I’ve become quite fond of the way fake, sheepskin white rugs look in a bedroom or living room. It is pretty easy to find sheep skin rugs if you look in the right places. I found one for $20 (which is not just fake, but extremely fake) but for that price, I love it! I think it will go well with the rest of the white in the living room. It looks just like this one below.
