I’ve made some big decor change-ups in the living room. And it all started with our bathroom renovation.
I was on the hunt for some art to break up the large blue wall in the bathroom when I came across this print at Pier1. I brought it home, but it was way too large for the bathroom. So we gave it a trial run over the couch. I decided I liked it there, but it didn’t go with the green accents I had going on in the room – curtain panels I had from when we moved into our first house nine years ago that looked a little washed out in the space and throw pillows in a green houndstooth and chocolate and green floral patterns.
My next step was finding new curtain panels for not a lot of money. I found these turquoise panels at Tuesday Morning for $20 per pair. They are a little long and grommet-top is not my first choice, but they do look nice in the room.
After finding the curtain panels, I knew I needed to find a way to bridge the gap between my houndstooth pillows that I love and am not ready to give up and the turquoise art and curtains. I found this fun ikat chevron print fabric at Forsyth Fabrics here in Atlanta. It has turquoise, the same green as the houndstooth, and a lime color on a cream backdrop. It was on sale, so I bought three yards and had four pillow covers made for the inserts I removed from the old throw pillows.
It feels like the room is so much more full now even though I didn’t add any furniture. I guess that is what happens when you bring in big art and rich colors. All this and I still haven’t found a piece of art for the bathroom.
