A Perfect Picture

Lately I've been daydreaming of having a house one day and how I'd like for it to look (on the inside that is).  Andrew and I often see things that we want to get for our apartment, but we both hesitate because we're not sure if it, whatever it is, will fit or work in our future, but imaginary for now house.  So we stick to what we have, which is actually really nice, thanks to my mom who's given us just about everything we have.  But I do love the look in this picture, which I saw on Decorno who saw it on Abbey Goes Design Scouting.  I love everything in the picture and how it's arranged--the oil paintings on the mantle, the white sofa, the bright lime green fabric on the side chair, the antique tray, the sisal rug, the putty green colored walls with a pale blue ceiling . . . .  This is a perfect picture of how I'd like my living room to look one day. But a white sofa with kids and a naughty cat, I'm not so sure about.

PS. I'll post my Pickled Hutch picks tomorrow.

I have a white couch with 2 dogs and 3 cats. And some crazy neices and nephews. But if you get a slipcovered couch, you can just throw it in the washer when it needs it.

Make three photo copies of this photo. Put one on your inspire-me board, one in your wallet and one in your husband's wallet. Then find the items that correspond with this look.
Clear, good light , modern with a fifty's edge. bright velvet french chair (a diamond a dozen in france! a chair like that one not upholstered would cost around 300 euro.)
I cannot wait to see what you will find.
