Client Project - Living Room Refresh!

have you guys ever watched vanilla ice's house makeover show on hgtv? i just caught an episode last night where he was redoing houses in amish country. SO weird!!

so a guy friend of mine recently "hired" me (i still use quotes because i'm not a real designer, let's face it) to help give his living room a little refresh. all of the bones are there but it's lacking in color and softness. his requests were: a new rug, pillows, and art. here is the before:

and here is a little board i put together to sell him on my ideas :)

the sofa and fabulous wing back (from rh if you're interested) are already in the room (you can see those above). i'm still working on artwork but that takes time since it's pretty personal. but i'm loving the pillows and color combos. orange and blue are his favorite colors so i wanted to be sure to incorporate both. we plan to add a navy blue band on the orange pillow which btw is velvet and so yummy! for the rug we're hoping to find something persian but have you looked at persian rug prices lately? even this one is $2200! ebay has some good stuff but it' so hard to buy a rug online. craigslist has some good finds too but you have to act fast.

next up, dining room window treatments for the same client! have a lovely weekend and try to stay warm - winter has arrived in the arctic north!
