So Surreal

Finally a home decor post! We've accomplished alot in less than a month and so far I'm pretty pleased with how things are coming together. We are tackling one room at a time - it's more realistic that way. The living room/kitchen area are the first areas since those are the most used (kitchen pics to come!)

So onto decor. The space isn't huge for our living room but it's a nice size with an open concept feel. We have tons of natural light which is a bonus. I've always loved grey tones (sometimes in excess!) but now grey hues are on trend, so I can get away with it! The paint I am using is Behr "Surreal Blue". It's a beautiful medium grey tone with a soft blue undertone.

I've been waiting to do any sort of decorating because we just had our hardwood floors installed. I opted for darker floors because of the warmth it adds, then of course added a lighter area rug to break up the space.

I am still hunting for wall art and would much rather live with bare walls instead of hanging something up temporarily. I am thinking of an oval mirror above our chair (either white or brushed silver) and a large canvas print above the couch.

For the opposite side of the wall - that's just a work in progress. We are going to wall-mount our TV eventually to clear up the space and then add a long low profile tv stand underneth. We've purchased a used wood cabinet whch we plan on re-finishing in the Spring.

In the opposite corner, we have this awesome accent chair from Pier One. Again, this side of the room is unfinished so this chair is sitting solo. I'd like to add a lamp behind it or a small table beside it.

So that's it for now! I will go into further detail with the decorative pieces but I wanted to get something up!
