Living Room Ideas

It's been less than a week since we selected our new home and I've already decorated most of it in my head :)  I've been driving my hubby nuts!

Our current apartment living room is just blah.  Black leather couch and love seat, black coffee table, puny little TV stand, glass and chrome side tables, and not much else.

I'm going with a black/white/aqua color scheme for this room and the rest of the main floor as well.

I'll be keeping our couches and coffee table and that will be it for black furniture.  Our TV stand is going to get a nice upgrade.  I've selected the Reston Corner Media Cabinet from Ballard Designs for now.

I'll also be getting rid of our side tables and looking for a replacement on craigslist.  I'd like to find some wood tables with pretty curved legs that I can paint a creamy white.

The one window in the room will be a beautiful large box bay and I am so in love with this fabric for the curtains:

Also, because there is only one window in the room, I think a mirror like this would be awesome:

Can you tell I love Ballard?

To break up all this black and white, I'm going to add in lots of aqua accents.  I already have a few accessories in storage, and I adore the print on this pillow:

Hmm, what else is there?  We have an appt. to select our floors on June 30th, and I think we'll be going with a dark, wide-plank hardwood.  My hubby and I disagree on flooring a bit, so I'm not 100% sure what we'll end up with.  The walls will be light but not white.  I'd love to hear what you think, I've decorated in my head a bunch of time, but this will be my first time executing my ideas.

  1. Congratulations on your new home. You'll have so much fun picking things out and making it just the way you want it.

    My suggestion? Start a small notebook that fits in your purse with room measurements, pictures of things you have picked out, paint colors, random ideas/thoughts, etc. I did that when we bought a house 6 years ago and I still carry it with me!
