Once again, Moody Monday almost didn't happen today. Lately I have been living by the mantra "If it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would get done." ;)
"Procrastinators unite! ... tomorrow..."
Aaanyyywhooo, one of our favorite features of the new house is the den. There is a fireplace, built in bookshelves, beams across the ceiling, a skylight, and a three-season porch off the back. We are hoping to keep some of the Mid- Century feeling to the house but, as you know by now, I simply can not commit to just one style. I love just about EVERY style out there, and would get so tired of all Mid- Century modern, or all Traditional.
That being said, I have been having a fun/ hard time deciding what I want to do in this house.... I have never had a blank canvas like this! (EEEK! Still getting used to the fact that we bought a house!!! Yippee!! )
The below board is just the first of many for this space, until I figure something out that really hits me.
|New house Den, take 1|
I had fun playing with the funky curtains and trying to blend them with some more serious, sophisticated pieces... not sure if I would actually want to live with the curtains, but they are definitely cool! I really liked that crazy vintage ottoman. I would love to find some unique vintage pieces like that, those chairs, and even maybe that dresser at Allegan this summer. (In the actual room, the fireplace is opposite the slider, which is why I did not include it in the board. The furniture would be facing the fireplace.)
Like I said- I am going to keep playing around with it until it feels right, but this was a fun start! I think I just need to find one piece that totally inspires me, and that will help me get the ball rolling for the rest of the space.
Hope you all had a lovely Monday!
