Late for Dinner!

Posted in Main at 3:50 pm by carrie

I’m on my way out the door! But I’m going to be without my computer tonight (boo!) so, I wanted to post some downstairs decorating progression pics before we jet out to Durham…

We opened up the table with all three leaves… it was so neat! And I added stuff to the walls, a few lamps, a wreath and some curtains… I’m also working on some art to hang up…slowly but surely it’s getting to look like a dining room!

Our sitting room is also coming together… a few chairs, some lime green and black shelves… just need a few things! (And Rach, you’re right… that bench may be too much! But I’ll never get rid of those acrylic grapes!! teehee!)

The living room… well… needs help. I’m going to do a few paintings for over the couch. I’m going to stick with blues, blue greys, shades of brown (and some in the red family to match the walls) and bits of black. Not what I had planned, but I found some inspiration from a photo album with bird eggs on it… (I’ll share that pic later)

Random dog wall in the breakfast area…

And… a chair I found at Ben’s Bargain Barn :D! I got this thing a week before I went to see the new Sex and the City movie. When they revealed Carrie’s new living room, I got really excited! The chair I got looks almost identical to the love seat and settee she has! (This picture doesn’t look nearly as good as what it looked like on the big screen!) The walls were a dark tiffany blue with grown-up floral pieces, mirrored furniture and pillows and rugs in bold, simple prints… it’s awesome! The guest room is taking on a whole new life… again!

Yikes! I’m really late now!!! Have a great Wednesday everyone! :)

    That green/black combination looks great! After years of white, white… and more white I’m ready for some colour too. Up here in Scandinavia the white country look is always present, but combining antiques with a splash of colour is a fresh look that’s very in right now here too. I’ve read your blog (and love it!) for a while but never commented before.

    Ah, don’t you LOVE Carrie’s re-do on her apartment?! Loved it before, but it was so fun to see a different spin on it! And your house is looking absolutely gorgeous! LOVE the paint colors you are using, especially the green in the dining room.. the dining set looks great!!! Your house is just so cozy, I could move right in! :) xoxo!
