A quickie


Busy day ahead for me so I thought I'd post a quick "Whaddya think?"
Look at the picture above and compare it to my living room below.
I want to switch out my coffee table for a Lucite one and add something on either side of the painting.


Its hard to tell in my photos but the walls are a pale pinkish peach. A different pillow in Le Lac will be on the center of the sofa. I was thinking of round convex mirrors or candle sconces above each end table with lamp.
Definitely needs a Lucite table
What would you change in my room or the inspiration photo?
I meant to add that this room is mostly South facing and the light is either blinding or very dim.
Any tips on getting a better shot that shows the color would be helpful.

I love this game...I was going to purchase something like this to flank my china hutch in my dining room (before I used the screen)

sorry about the huge address. How about painting it for a "pop". What about changing the color of you end-tables? Sorry, if you love wood tones, then.... never-mind. With the addition of the pillows, you are there.

My dear, I found your blog by chance, while peeking others and I decided to check it out! I’m glad I did it, because I am really delighted with yours.

LOVE this! The wall color is as you said, "barely there." The idea of the lucite coffee table is perfect and I like Linda's suggestion for the walls above the side tables. I would definitely play up some of the other colors in your painting, whether in the pillows you use or painting side tables or bamboo pieces Linda suggested.

A lucite table or anything more modern would be wonderful. I actually like the tole sconces in the first photo too.

Are your Brno chairs orange? I thought they were more brown.

Thanks everyone your comments are appreciated.

@Linda I don't so much love wood tones but the tables were kind of high end 40s Duncan Phyfe style. The coffee table matches but isn't in great condition.

@UC the Brno chairs are a rust, so I guess they are both orange and brown.

@Bart I was hoping for a Lucite waterfall table in there.
