December is finally here...I have just a few more weeks or maybe not before sleepless nights, crying and a massive increase of love in my home. Can't wait! Anyway, I thought the image above was one of the most gorgeous winter inspired living rooms I've ever seen. The tone on tone white with splashes of gold give it an ethereal feeling, while still being cozy with the mixture of textures. Because this space is so unattainable right now with a baby on the way, I thought why not dream. So onto Craigslisting this space...
Large White Sofa $50 (a good cleaning should brighten it up)
Scalloped Back $5 (paint legs and arms Benjamin Moore Dove White)
Reupholster Chair in: Robert Allen Sensuede Snow, $104.30/yd
Reupholster Ottoman in: White Velvet, Online Fabric Store $25/yd
Coffee Table: To recreate the coffee table above I would have wood logs cut evenly for the height of a coffee table. Then I would connect them using double sided screws. After everything is tight and level, I would spray paint bright gold and add a round glass top. I have never tried this, but if someone did I would love to know if it worked.
Spray Paint: Krylon Gold
Candlesticks: (these are so easy to find at second hand stores for next to nothing)
5 Hand Carved Wooden Candlesticks $50 (spray paint gold)
Now onto items that I could NOT find on Craigslist:
Flokati, Ikea $79.99 x 4 (to make a large rug sew multiples together)
Wow, sorry for the long post. The room required layering upon layering of texture and I hope I achieved that. This is my ode to a White Holiday!
