My Living Room

This room is all about colour and how to make an eclectic mix of inherited and new pieces work together.
The table is mid-century modern teak, the couch is new and the love seat was inherited. The sideboards were inherited from family and I updated them with a chocolate spray laquer and blue milk glass handles. The lamps were a bargain find at HomeSense. And the artwork is a mix of prints and originals as well as a couple of inherited pieces. The inspiration for the colour scheme came from the Sumak area rug.

It's a linen/silk blend fabric that I bought at a store called Designer Fabrics in Toronto, then I had the pillow custom made.

It's from a store in Toronto called Dominion Rugs. The style of rug is a Sumak (100% wool--very kid friendly).
