With our tax refund we're going to get a gorgeous new grey couch from Pottery Barn - our couches are so old they give me tremendous back pain so it's a necessity to replace one. Since our apartment is small, we'll just be getting one couch and then maybe a bench or ottoman in place of the loveseat.
We're going with a yellow mustard, teal and grey color scheme and incorporating all the things I love in little ways: My family, the colors, owls, cameras and anchors. It sounds like they don't go together... at all.. and really it might be a total flop and they might not go to together... but in my head they sure do!
I must say pinterest is a budget-designers best friend these days: I have a whole stockpile of art to display that I got for free (legally, mind you!) and that just wouldn't have been possible without something like pinterest. amazing.
Here is my design board - beautiful is it not! I am so excited to get started.
Curtains: Target, Gray Henna. Light, Ikea. Yellow Table: Target. Fabric swatches: Birdcage Canary, Out to Sea Anchor, Premier Prints Menagerie, Bella Plaid Teal @ Fabric.com. Teal Vase: Creative Home Decoations . Yellow ottoman: target. Yellow Owl: West Elm. Yellow clock: Modcloth. Graphite Pouf: CB2. Mustard throw: Nordstroms. Grey Couch: PB. Teal pillow: Urban Outfitters. Yellow Pillow: Target. Yellow Forsythias faux flower: PB. Yellow Peony: PB. Yellow knit storage bin: Land of Nod. Teal throw: CB2
We just purchased the yellow accent table to use as a media console underneath our mounted TV, and we scored the gray henna curtains for only $10 on clearance at Target. We will be buying the couch with our tax refund soon! I am so excited to get started on everything - although because of the cost of redecorating, I do think it will be a slow process. I am aiming to finish the LR before summer though! Even my inspiration board is full of deals! I will be making all my own pillows and spray painting many things I already have to upcycle them.
