I am so excited about getting my living room finished. I struggled trying to decide upon a color scheme, but I think I finally figured it out, thanks to Target’s lovely yellow polyresin lamps. I was walking through a store in San Antonio this past weekend (I was there for my girlfriend’s wedding shower), when I spotted these beautiful little nuggets down the aisle. It was definitely love at first sight! I had been playing with a yellow, orange and teal color scheme for a while now, but I did not think I could pull it off, until I saw this gorgeous yellow in person. I was immediately inspired. It is perfect it is not too bright (sometimes yellow takes on a highlighter look, because it is so reflective), but this yellow is so warm and the perfect balance of mustardy yellow, while still being bright and cheery. The Hubby and I already have the furniture down. We bought a Sactional, which we absolutely love, because you can take it apart and put it in any shape you could imagine. We also have the black and white art to hang above the sofa/entryway table (ours are pencil drawings of famous places in New Orleans). The tables (coffee and sofa/entryway) we hate to admit are from Ikea, but they get the job done and look good doing it. We wanted to do an ottoman instead of a coffee table for a pop of color, but with the lamps, pillows, art, and fun rug I think we have the pop of color covered. All I have to do now is find that perfect rug (preferably one that does not cost $1,000), some more colorful accessories (I seem to always have a buddha in every room), and learn how to sew so I can make some decorative pillows to balance these bold and bright colors. I am very excited!
