Project Living Room: The Furniture

We are making slow but steady progress on the living room.  We painted the walls a beautiful blue/green color called Night Mist by Benjamin Moore and we're about half way done painting the trim Benjamin Moore white.  

I had a Jacob Chair from Boston Interiors that I moved from my old house and I purchased another one so we'll have two flanking the fireplace.  I ordered a new sofa, coffee table, woven shades, and a media unit.  Things are starting to arrive, but we won't have our new sofa until September.  I chose the Paidge Sofa from West Elm in Hazy Taupe Performance Velvet.  With two dogs, a lighter colored sofa will not hold up.  The Cameron Coffee Table from World Market was a great steal and I'm super happy with the quality, but the surface stains easily.  I read suggestions to put a protective coat on the surface.  I painted on one coat of a water-based polyurethane in satin finish and it worked great. 

Living Room Design - The Furniture

1. Ikea Hemnes TV/Storage * 2. Select Blinds Express Woven Wood Shades (Buckeye) * 3. Boston Interiors Jacob Chair (Natural) * 4. World Market Cameron Coffee Table * 5. Benjamin Moore Night Mist Paint * 6. West Elm Paidge Sofa (Hazy Taupe)

I also ordered a custom radiator cover from Fichman Furniture which should arrive in a few weeks:

My plan is to create a casual, comfortable, beachy space and to accessorize with pops of yellow to brighten things up.  

The Ikea media unit arrived yesterday so next step is getting that assembled which should be a real treat.  Oh Ikea, you are so necessary, but so evil. :)
