What I'm envisioning : Living Room

I'm channeling a sort of Anthropologie-esque, cottage-y, antique-y meets Crate & Barrel theme for the decor throughout the house. While searching for the online color swatch of the living room color I started saving the swatches for each room and I LOVE seeing all the colors together... I'll have to share them all in another post (I have a few more room's worth of swatches to find/save first)!

The living room is the only room that has been painted so far. I went with Sherwin Williams "Universal Khaki" (SW6150) on it, because it was the perfect putty gray.
Yes, I promise this color is far less 'khaki' and much more 'gray'... I personally think the people who name Sherwin Williams colors a little wacko but regardless.

Here's a sample of what it looks like in real life via iPhone camera. I about died when I came to the house on Wednesday evening and saw a room all done and painted. (Chris had the day off and spent it prepping & painting the walls in there) I loveeee the color! It looks so good with the darker floors and the white trim!

Add in my "Spa" colored couch that I got on Friday...

Plus a big fuzzy, cushy, creamy white shag area rug

And my favorite - some bright, bold colorful pillows! I haven't completely decided, but Pier One has a TON of cute ones that I'm lusting over these are just a few of my favorites. I think I want to do one of the bright multi-colored ones, and pull a few colors out of it for more plain accent pillows/accessories throughout the room.

I was just telling someone that I love the color of the sofa because you can coordinate just about any color with it - red, orange, green, black, brown, tan, whatever!

What colors would you go with?

The paint color looks great! I love white trim!

I love the bright colors in those pillows! I would definitely do a couple of those and then just play off the colors that are in it, like the bright green, blue, purple, organge, etc. That will look so fun with the color of the couch!

Be sure to check World Market for pillows too. They have a lot of great stuff similar to Pier 1, but usually a lot less expensive.
