Tomorrow at 5:00pm is our home inspection but we anticipate everything going well. So I am already redecorating in my mind, and am looking for direction in this room.
We are probably going to leave the neutral walls for the next while, and focus our decorating energies elsewhere, but the purple has got to go. I have several things that can go in place of the artwork there. One large painting by an old friend Joel, it's all shades of green with some yellow and a splotch of red. Or I have a three new illustrations I need to frame that I bought at the Bealart Year End Show last summer. They are "room interiors" in various colours. They have collaged bits of wallpaper samples, amazing line quality and painterly uses gouache/watercolour.
In terms of our furniture we have our new brown leather couch, a chair in red and blonde wood, and maybe our other couch (my grandma's couch) that was never given away. (It would need recovering though since it's pretty horrid). Edited to add the following photos; the couch is more in colour like the darker photo and you can see the spot where I sat for over a month all day everyday from a broken foot...
I think we will need to update the mantle also.
I'm not really into red walls, but do want something bold. What are your suggestions?
