Since writing this post a few weeks ago, my hopes, prayers, and dreams were answered by the green sofa gods, and this custom Anthropologie Forest Green Velvet CHESTERFIELD will be arriving around mid-March!!!
It’s been a few weeks since finishing our bathroom and even though they’re just about healed from the abundance of tiny deep gashes, my hands are itching to start a new project. A true Type A can’t not be working on anything or starting something new.
Every so often, I’ll divulge myself in writing a post that doesn’t really benefit you, the reader, unless you’re thoroughly interested in what’s been on my mind – aka my next room design. So yes, this post is more of a “dear diary I love my husband to death but why can’t he understand that a green sofa is a need and not a want.” If you’d like to see how I would design my own dream living room (in hopes that I can eventually bring it to life), then keep on reading.
It’s taken a while, but I think I’ve sort of nailed down my ever-evolving style (at least for the time being), and how I can best describe it is as follows;
MY OWN PERSONAL AESTHETIC IS EVER-EVOLVING, BUT IS BEST DESCRIBED AS TRADITIONAL GLAMOUR WITH A MODERN TWIST AND A MASCULINE TOUCH. I FOCUS ON CREATING A JUXTAPOSITION OF DARK AND LIGHT, MIXING MODERN WITH VINTAGE AND BLENDING MASCULINE WITH FEMININE.
Of course, “juxtaposition” was thrown in there, Sally. That’s a design blogger’s favorite word.
Anywho, I got lost in the throes of the internet and took to photoshop to create the living room of my dreams
Anddd the 3D room design:
If Angelo doesn’t eventually cave on that green sofa, here’s my second option, which includes our existing sofa and rug:
Obviously, it’s not nearly as stunning as the first option, but it’s a worst-case scenario type of thing.
I have a full week off between Christmas and the New Year, and I plan on painting our entire upstairs level white (it’s currently gray). It’s a northern facing room nightmare and once I’m finished painting, I plan to start building out the living room a little more based on this design.
If you’re still reading this…pls send a prayer to the green sofa gods for me OK.
