Today is another bitter sweet day. I can’t believe that our little baby is turning 7 today. I love seeing what creature (that’s what I call her) she is becoming. She is something else, I tell ya! I always ask her what planet she is from and she tells me she is from the same planet as me. She knows that I’m an alien (hehe, legal that is)!
She wanted to have a spooky sleepover party. Oh boy, I have the feeling that I will regret this one. I have 5 little crazy ones sleeping over. Let’s see how it goes.
For my post today I want to share a mood board that I recently did for a reader. She wanted something similar to our living room but it had to work with her blue tiled kitchen backsplash which you can see in her family room since it is open concept.
I was lucky enough to be able to start with the West Elm Walton 3-Piece L-Shaped Sectional in flax that she had already. Who doesn’t like West Elm, right? I know I’d love that sofa for our basement. That’s just not an option right now 🙁 (Too many vet bills, hey and some more vet bills, a broken car, a broken dryer… I’m sure you get it!)
Anyways, here is what I came up with:
So let me explain a little. The tree is behind the couch to disguise an air-condition unit that is higher on the wall.
There is a TV nook across the from the sectional which I think would look great in a blue. I found the fabulous dresser on Craigslist. Can you believe it? I so want one.
The mirror above the couch is also from craigslist but if you google bamboo starburst mirror, you can find similar mirrors.
2 Essex Upholstered Ottoman
3 Honeycomb Crewel Pillow Cover – Blue Lagoon
4 Verilux Heritage Natural Daylight Floor Lamp
5 Blue Ikat Pillow Cover
6 Alston Ivory/Gold Curtain Panels
7 Cardboard Safari Large Trophy
She thinks that she will paint the horizontal striped curtains like I did to save some money.
I love how everything looks, don’t you?
So that’s it for today have a great weekend and wish me luck with the sleepover 😉
