Need help creating an eclectic living room in my 1940s house
January 23, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I need a ton of help! I want to create an eclectic style living room. I have light oak floors, white brick fire place, french doors on one end and an arch way into the room on the other side. The couch must stay and is pretty much stuck in that position due to its size. The room has ivory silk drapes. I picked up the navy coqo floral drapes from anthro and was just testing them out in the living room, but initially purchased for my bedroom. Are they too bold for the space? I would love some suggestions for side chairs, end tables, media console, paint color, rug, lamps, room arrangement etc. Pretty much everything! I was looking at some chairs from Room and Board but am unsure if my traditional sofa can be paired with modern chairs? I seem to like many different styles but am unsure of how to blend them all together-mid century, modern, traditional, vintage. I should also add that the television stays and I don't want the tv over the mantle. Thanks!
