Our family room is complete. Complete until I decide to redecorate again.
After the white couches, I went with a mono-chromatic cafe au lait color. Dirt and dogs tend to blend in well with this kind of color.
My Lucite side table is my new favorite thing. My accent color in this room has always been a parsley green, but I wanted to add a yellow as well. A lemon yellow to be exact.
We order the chairs months ago. They were well worth the wait. They are made of a thick corduroy that is amazingly soft. And best of all–they recline! When you have a small room without enough space for two ottomans, recliners–recliners that don’t look like recliners–are a great alternative. I also used some of our many coffee table books and a large, upside down ceramic vase to create a side table next to the chair.
And then as redecorating is known to do, I decided to change up the dining room just a touch. My orchids are so pretty. Keeping them alive will be nothing more than a miracle for me.
My Japanese Fu Dogs are my new favorite thing. I saw them first in the March issue of O Magazine and then spotted these at Home Goods. In Asian culture, it is believed that if you place the pair near your front door they ward off evil spirits. My grandmother always had a gigantic pair of Fu Dogs near the entrance of her house. If you knew my grandmother, then you know they didn’t work.
