Do you ever find it difficult to focus on one project at a time? We have so much empty space and random decor from previous houses in our home right now that I'm just jumping from room to room trying to update things. But I'm finding that I just wind up with several partially-finished rooms and no completely finished rooms. I am going to try to change that.
I'm not delusional enough to think I'm actually going to succeed in channeling all of my efforts to one room, but I'm sure going to try! My plan is to focus on the family room and only do projects in other rooms if they are essentially free.
Here's my "to-do/wishlist" for my family room:
We finally decided on and ordered couches last weekend. This is what we went with:
|Don't pay attention to the pillows, I plan to get rid of them.|
The furniture layout will be just about the same as a model of our house with two couches in an "L" shape opposite two accent chairs, like this:
|I want to do my paint color scheme similar to this too.|
Here are some of the things I want for the family room:
1. Coffee and console table something like this.
2. Two accent chairs... here are my options: Option 1, Option 2, Option 3, Option 4, Option 5 and Option 6. I LOVE the target one, but I'm afraid the pattern won't work with some of the other patterns I already have in the room and/or won't be flexible in case I want to change something up in the future. And as far as the gray options, I'm afraid it will wind up being too similar to the couches, but not exact, so it will look like a failed attempt at matching. So I guess I'm leaning toward either the navy, peacock, black or really light gray one, but I can't decide!! Any input is very much appreciated!
3. Fake fireplace like this one on the wall opposite the couch (behind the two chairs):
I'm also working on a photo gallery which will go on that wall until we get around to building the "fireplace". More on that to come!
Please share any thoughts... I'm totally open to suggestions!
