Some people are asking how I/we plan to decorate our new home. (I say "we" because unlike other houses we've owned, this is the first time that Johnny is an active participant in decorating. Up until now, he's been busy working, but this time, he's jumped into the decorating decisions with both feet. Oh yes, his favorite color is blue--always has been.
Today, I'm sharing some of the choices we've made for our living room. Of course, you will see some blue. This is a sample of the silk material we've chosen for the drapes for our living room, dining room, and foyer. I taped it to a white door to try to give you a good color idea. The soft blue is cut off in the right lower corner, but I think you'll get the idea.
We recently selected this rug from Home Depot when they had a 50% off sale. It's wool and has many shades of blues and tans.
I'll give you a closer look so that the blue is more obvious.
Here's a good close-up of some of the blue.
I've placed a cushion from our living room chair that came from South Florida on top of the rug. At the lower right is one piece of our tile flooring peeking out.
I am getting excited about our new home. We visit it every day. I love having you blogging friends who give me so many creative ideas.
