Living Room Refresh

When we first moved into our house, the walls were a dingy butter creme yellow framed with off white trim on the windows and accent woodwork. It just gave a dated, nineteen-eighties feel to the room no matter how many modern pieces and metallic accents I added. After countless trips to The Home Depot to find the perfect paint color, I finally settled on this warm gray custom shade that is an exact match to the rim of my china, Femme Fatale by Monique Lhuillier for Royal Doulton. I then set to work scouring Homegoods, Overstock.com, and One Kings Lane for furnishings and finishing touches. I tend to favor textured neutrals because they have a timeless elegance and never go out of style. It’s easy to switch up accent pieces for a bit of color from season to season. My favorite piece in the room is the sunburst mirror from One Kings Lane that hangs over the fireplace. It’s a stunning focal point, and just fills the room with reflected light. I’m also pretty proud of the framed amethysts that I found broken and banged up in the clearance section of Homegoods. With a little effort and elbow grease, I was able to bring them back to life. Where are your favorite shopping destinations for home decor?
