Living room stills

Living room stills - via Coco Lapine Design blog _MG_1759

These are some stills I shared from our living room on Instagram this week and I keep thinking I want to change this room up a little bit. I have so many ideas and need to draw them all out so I can decide what comes first.

Painting the walls is high on my priorities list and when I asked this question on Instagram you almost unanimously mentioned a light beige/grey mixture, which I can totally see as well. I think a wall lamp on top of the sofa would look great and I’m looking to replace my carpet for something more velvet looking. Any tips would be highly appreciated.

So many things on my list, but I love to take it slow and to see step by step what I like in the setting and what I don’t.  The prints you can see here are the Mountain ABC and Circular Watercolor in case you were wondering.

      If you’re looking for that ever so trendy look of silk rugs (textured and nuanced even in flat colors), don’t get viscose. They are notoriously hard to clean, even just a drop of water in a light colored viscose rug will leave you with a yellow-brown spot. And then the rug cleaners laugh at you for buying inferior rugs for a high price tag.

      The staged interiors make them look so easy to live with. Thus, I have been dreaming about silk rugs myself, tempted to buy a viscose rug for a fraction of the price. They are still much more expensive than the polypropylene rugs.

      I’d love to know what you end up with and to hear about your life with such a rug.

      P.s. you are a fountain of inspiration.

        Thanks for sharing this Lily, so important when buying a rug to think about cleaning up spills as well ! And thanks for the kind words about my blog 😉
