Nieuwe woonkamer | New living room


It's been such a long time since I blogged.
There has happened a lot in the mean time.

One thing I have been doing is helping Mr. B. with moving into his new house, and playing interior designer. The house was built in de mid 50's, so we decided the interior should have a subtle mid century feel.

In this post are photo's of a small corner of the living room that is now in a more or less finished state. The floor was already there when Mr. B. moved in. The walls were white, the ceilings and walls were dirty, the mantle was painted in an orangy-red colour which didn't at all fit in this room.

We decided to go for neutral tones. The walls of the sitting space in the living room are now painted in a pinkish brown. The colour was achieved by mixing several leftovers of paint we were given by friends and family. The dining area, which is not in this photo's, will be painted in a much lighter shade of the same colour.

There is still a lot of work to do, and a lot of things need to be added. We are waiting a vintage sofa (chaise longue) to arrive in one or two weeks, the curtains have to be made and hung, the dining area should be painted and furnished, etc...
And that is only the living room, I'm not even talking about the kitchen and the bathroom, and the bedroom and...

I keep telling myself: "We'll get there, ... eventually."
