design inspiration for our living room

Emily Oster

Our living room is in need of some updating. To begin, our floor lamp that supplies our main source of light has a broken shade. Our sofa, as I mentioned in the sheep skin post, has one too many stains. Our rug is extremely faded and almost torn as Booker tries to burrow a hole in it each evening. We have no art on the walls - the list could go on. So needless to say I have been dreaming of making some changes.

The design below started with the lamps. I came across these Ranarp reading lamps last week via REMODELISTA and love their vintage industrial look. I also like the touch of brass and their price at just $59.99 each. Paired together they would not only provide much needed light but create a sort of sculpture around the sofa. Between the lamps, I would love to hang a large print like this one from Kevin Russ. A new sofa something like this Montgomery down filled sofa would be nice as it is comfortable while still being tailored. I would choose an upholstery fabric that is Booker friendly like the brushed heathered cotton in flax and add two long lumbar pillows in a simple maybe tribal influenced fabric. In terms of tables, I would use our existing hexagon shaped brass side table and get a new lucite coffee table that would make the space feel more open but would also be very practical (I like our current coffee table but it is rather narrow and wood which isn't great for putting feet up or setting down drinks). Finally, I would love to paint the room something darker like Oval Room Blue No.85 from Farrow and Ball. A lot more would need to go into the room like a new rug and maybe some new chairs but its a starting point that I could potentially even make a reality...
