CED 2008 ~ Home Redecorating

Living room wall niche vignette.
I'm still considering adding a wider shelf here, perhaps a hand-hewned rustic wooden beam.

Such pretty colors in your room but I think your tables are a little too close and I would hang the curtains higher above the window. Is the paneling new, I think it's so 70's

Just a little tweaking here and there, you have such pretty pieces.

Hello, Susie! Thank you so much for your compliments. I, too, love the colors but I'm definately desiring a lighter look for Spring and Summer. I'm remaining hopeful that we'll find a lighter shade of the green, similar to what's in the new rug to replace the heavier tapestry curtains. I would also like to mimic the soft curve in the sofa for a more feminine appearance.

The Hickory paneling isn't new --- we installed it approx. 8 years ago to break up the box. This is one half of our living room, a 11'6" x 30 foot rectangle with 3 doorways. My solution was to break up the room into two separte spaces and this is one half of it. The paneling is something I have a love/hate relationship with, LOL! Some days, I could rip it down and other days, I desire to stain it darker. I'm not normally a fan of accent walls except when used in a monochromatic color schemes.
