I’m not very good at this…..but one thing Darling Husband and I have had trouble agreeing on since marriage is decor. Everything is his, furniture wise, and I kid you not, it’s the bachelor pad living room of the 90’s..all black, all leather, black panther. I di’dnt have any furniture to speak of to add…and Ive never decorated a home really. My apartment consisted of most of my roomates furniture.
So, I’ve convinced Darling Husband, that we will get rid of the coffee table, and that I can have a new one and that I can get rid of the lamp too..but that everytrhing else must stay, which is basically just the entertainment console (black) and the sofa (black) becuse they are relatively new and the side table for now (black) because we can’t afford a new one yet.
So, this first pic is not our living room, but it represents what our living room looks almost exactly like at hte present moment. subtract the excersize bike and the curtains, we just have verticle blinds right now, and our carpet is alot lighter.. Yuck, I know.
The second pic represtents the coffee table he said I can have, the sofa I’m not allowed to toss…and the little bits and pieces I plan to add…curtains, pillows, lamp, stuff for the top of the coffee table, liner for inside the coffee table drawers, vases and flowers I like. I will probably replace the knobs on the tv console drawers to opaque or something. I’d love to do the light gray walls and ivory curtains but that’s in the distant future…
Any other ideas how I can fix this living room?? I’ts really hard to work around this stupid leather sofa.
