Quick, Temporary Living Room Makeover

FROM THE RIGHT BANK | www.fromtherightbank.com

I’m still mulling over the lavender settee idea and even moved the settee in question into the living room to try it out for size. Then, as usual, one thing led to another and the lucite coffee table got switched out for this antique one, the garden stool for the Componibili and the toile armchair for the Louis chairs …..

And even if it’s temporary, I couldn’t just leave it all undone so some new pillows came out (Trina Turk) and the coffee table and bookshelves got a little restyling. So the room currently looks like this. It’s a fun change while I try and muster up the courage to go lavender.

For the really observant out there, you can probably see in the background that there’s been some rearranging in the family room too. More on that later…..

Palm Beach-Inspired Condo Project

I’ve started a really fun project that you’ll be hearing a lot more about in the coming months. For now, let me show you some rooms with a Palm Beach vibe that will be inspiration for the project.

As you can already tell, there will be plenty of pattern and color including my favorite, orange. Oh yeah, it’s going to be awesome.

I’m really excited to be documenting this project on FTRB, along with another project that I’ll be telling you about soon. Most people don’t want the decorating of their homes to be on the web for the entire world to see (which I totally understand because I used to be the same way before I started blogging) so I’m really happy to have not just one, but two homeowners who are up for it. It’s going to be all kinds of fun!

Have a wonderful first weekend of spring and I’ll see you Monday!

Crazy Bulldog Lady Strikes Again

It’s time for a French Bulldog decorative objects update. (Apparently we’re doing those now.) First this silhouette pillow from C Wonder. How cute is this, I ask you???

Then there’s this votive holder I got in London at Graham and Green:

If, at this point, you’re thinking, “Well that’s not that crazy,” keep in mind we’re adding these to the needlepoint pillow and these:

Okay, they don’t count since they’re not decorative (even if they don’t do much other than sitting around looking cute all day).

Oh and for anyone keeping track, yes, the wingback is now back in the family room:

as is the sisal rug. Yup, another round of musical chairs and rugs.
