Just inside the front door to our home, the lounge room is the first on the left. Here's a good look around in this room as it is today...
Above: Standing in the entry, the front door is on the left in this pic.
Below: Peering down the hall to the kitchen, we have a coat rack and our 'whiteboard'/message centre on the wall. The starburst clock was from Hot Dollar (and spray painted gold).
Above: Behind me are the green painted stairs down to the lower floor. In the lounge room, the new focal point is on the freshly upholstered chairs which were my Christmas break project! I designed the fabric on Spoonflower and worked on these salvaged pieces over a number of days.
Below: They set off the gallery of colourful prints beautifully. I have accented the chairs with hot pink velvet cushions and my Pink Swan print cushion with pompom trim! The blue colour also throws toward the table lamps in the dining room.
Above: The Dining room features curtains made in my "Hollywood Crossing" Print on delicious linen, with antler 'tiebacks' from Urban Outfitters. A set of vintage Bertoia chairs (a bargain on an online auction!) around the Ikea table, and a trio of fabric covered pendant shades.
Below: The sofa is the "Studio" from Freedom with chaise in cement, rugs are from Target - an easily accessible version of the Ikea wool rug I covet, but couldn't get!
Above: A gallery of black and white prints (mostly) around the TV will be expanding, and the plan is to mount the tv on the wall.
Behind the lounge is a separate conversation area/library, the arched window is dressed with one side swept curtain panel in Orange octagons print, with a necklace as a tieback! The vintage ottoman has just been upholstered in sliced stripes to bring the stripes in the rug across to this area. The chairs are vintage (probably 80s) bought on Gumtree for $50 each! They are surprisingly very comfortable!
And below, the magazine collection is kept under control in cubes, and the gorgeous blossom print above was from the Reject shop (don't tell anyone) !!
And that's the lounge room currently, check out the 'before' shots here to see where it started!!! ughh! It's such a fresh sunny room now, love it!
