Happy Friday! I am so close to being done with my dining room painting. All that’s left is to paint the baseboards and a few touch-ups. I am very pleased with the results. The room is still quite bare, especially since I removed the ugly old faux-wood blinds from the window and refuse to put them back up. So I’m just going to live with no window treatments until I can afford something new. I’m pretty torn on what sort of treatments to go with; I may need your help with that decision.
Somehow it took me a month to round up enough living room photographs to share with you. I’m detecting a slight shift in my tastes and I think it might be making me a little pickier, or it might just be confusing me. Regardless, I’ve got some stunners for you today. Enjoy!
I am blown away by the originality here. You hardly even notice how white-washed it is because there is so much texture and pattern going on. How do you like the way they’re displaying art? A dramatic single-file line of dancers paired with a line-up of colorful portraits resting on the floor. Fresh and interesting. Buckingham Interiors + Design via desire to inspire.

So much gorgeous wood. Via delight by design.
This room somehow manages to be absolutely luxurious without being at all flashy. The near-neutral purple of the sofa is lovely. And let’s talk about the star of the room: that fireplace. A completely metal fireplace could have easily been overwhelming or harsh, but the rich patina of the metal paired with the soft furnishings make it absolutely work in this room.

So glamorous! The rug is a show-stopper (click the photo to get a better look). And how about those giant wing sculptures? Designed by Daun Curry.
Is. So. Beautiful. Sometimes I talk like Tarzan when I’m smitten. The light walls, the sunny windows with gorgeous green view, the curvy lines, the Lucite coffee table, the stunning color combination of deep rusty orange and vibrant fuchsia purple. I mean seriously. I JUST LOVE IT. From the home of Jacqui Getty for C Magazine via Honestly WTF.
