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).

4. Go for salon style. Start with the largest piece of art. Center it in the middle or just off the middle, and then place the rest of the art around it in a way that pleases your eye. You can decide on a layout by laying the art on the floor until you find a solution that works or by cutting out the shape of each piece of art in brown craft paper and taping it to the wall to test out ideas.

Go for salon style. Start with the largest piece of art. Center it in the middle or just off the middle, and then place the rest of the art around it in a way that pleases your eye. You can decide on a layout by laying the art on the floor until you find a solution that works or by cutting out the shape of each piece of art in brown craft paper and taping it to the wall to test out ideas.

Hang art in a grid. Hanging a grid of photos is a great way to make a big statement while still keeping the focus on the individual photos. A symmetrical grid take some additional time and math. Have patience. Keep about 2 to 3 inches between frames.
