Inspiration: Livingroom Ideas

one of the convenient things of being married to a photographer is getting beautiful pictures of everyday things...like my home. i wanted a few nice shots while the house was clean and got this one of the living room.

i'm thinking of doing a few things and want my readers advice...make it a little interactive.
1. i want to paint the fireplace white
2. add a bookshelf on either side of the fireplace, painted white and full height to the windowsill. i'd like to be able to have plants on top of the bookshelves.
3. add a shelf over the t.v. for a few small etsy pieces. maybe a gocco or small screen print.

what do you think? i'm constantly wanting to do more without adding too much. thoughts? ideas? see the plan that i've drawn up to give you a better sense of scale.


  1. word. word. and word. you're the pro yo!

  2. i think each of those sound great - not too much at all.

  3. I think the white on the fireplace along with one or two white bookcases on the sides of the fireplace would really help to brighten the space and maybe even make it seem bigger. I am not sure about the shelf over the TV...could have that feeling of too much with the art work to the right of the TV?! Not sure...but definitely #1 and #2!!
