New house dreaming

I have been doing more "new house dreaming" than one person should. "New house dreaming" is when you decorate the rooms of houses that you do not own but actually have plans to move. I have no idea what our new house will involve at this point, so I just fantasize.

I am a big fan of mixing traditional pieces with modern pieces and I hope to take my decor a bit more to the traditional side this time. 
I chose a Chesterfield sofa with a burled walnut chest and some blue and white pieces from the Pink Pagoda for the traditional part of this living room. I threw in a Dana Gibson pillow, lamp from Wisteria and the White cocktail table from to add some zing.
I also used my painting "Smolder" which is being offered by Gregg Irby Fine Art in Atlanta to make the whole thing a bit edgier.

Do you decorate houses that you don't own just for fun?

Kerry I could decorate anything I do believe! How did I miss that you are moving? Of Course I could have forgotten with so much going on. At any rate,I am very excited of you!

Beautiful combo of pieces. I love everything you've chosen. That walnut chest is a beauty. And of course I'm a fan of that cocktail table!

Love the mood board ... and yes, I drive by houses and decorate them in my mind. It's relentless!! Looking forward to following along your new adventure!

Your plan is spot on. I do the same thing too, even though we have no plans to move. :) I'll day dream with you any time.
