This upcoming year, I'm looking to do a little bit of minor and inexpensive redecorating in The Keys home. After spending some time here - I'm thinking I need to re-work the main rooms a little bit to make them a bit more comfortable for relaxing, reading and watching television. Right now, the rooms are nice to look at - but they are not that functional. And they are a bit bare.
|This furniture is not that comfortable. That's what happens when you order |
furniture from the PB catalog...sight unseen. I'm thinking I can
have more comfortable cushions made.
It's hard to make the house look comfortable and lived in - when I'm only here 4 or 5 times a year...a couple days at a time. So with that - I'll be researching different looks that appeal to me. I'm going to take my time putting together something that will be timeless and hopefully last for several years.
Since I've had great luck with the slipcover look and I think I'm leaning in that direction. With two dogs and four cats - slipcovers seem to be the best bet. So here are some of my favorite looks that I have collected so far - all from Coastal Living Magazine.
|I love mixing the turquoise in.|
|Green and pink always work well together.|
|Such a pretty light blue table. Looks great mixed in with the pink.|
|I really like the yellow, green and blue.|
|These purple adirondack chairs are fun.|
|This is close to my current colors. I always go back to pinks and whites. |
Love the clam shell used as a fruit bowl. That gives me a great idea!!
|Awesome driftwood table.|
|This look is probably the most practical and timeless. And I can mix in some of|
my favorite french and shabby pieces.
|This photo just makes me happy.|
So here's to redecorating in the New Year!
