For months now, I have been thinking of ways to lighten up this corner of the
Living Room. The paneling and rug cannot be changed, so I
had to rely on other ways of bringing in the light.
I loved the little “Bistro” area we had recently created in this area,
(in the left photo above. left), however, it just seemed too dark.
Mike helped me to put sheers up along the open wall between the Dining Room and the Living room.
They provide privacy and separation, and yet allow prolific sunshine to brighten the corner of the Living Room.
A Costal theme will be the setting for the remainder of the summer,
so my seagulls and beach prints were perfect for this spot.
I will use the French Toile material (On the wall of the before photo)
to Slipcover a Thrifted Armchair to match the whole equation.
The Beach Print on the wall was hand chosen from a Museum Art Book.
I love the way it brings all the colors together, and it reminds me of special times
with extended family during Beach Vacations.
