I shared several rooms in the first tour, but today I am showing a few changes I've made to the living room.
I rarely use a lot of saturated color and I am not a real huge fan of blue in my decor, but this royal blue velvet was just so lush I couldn't resist venturing out of my comfort zone a little. This fabric is a really fun happy accident. I ordered some fabric online and somehow my order got mixed up with someone else and I got a bright shocking pink and this fabulous royal blue. Well they were so wonderful that I kept them both.
With just a few pillow changes and swapping out a few accessories, I have a whole new look. I played off the leopard pillows and added a few more masculine accessories to create a version of an upsclale "man cave".
I added fanciful candlesticks, a stylish gazelle and a chess board to the coffee table.
The deep lush blue on these velvet pillows just draw you in and would make any man feel comfortable.
This Gazelle figurine wearing all kinds of animal prints was a fun thrift store find. He's wearing just about every animal print there is. I think he adds tons of character to the coffee table.
The men in my family are all chess players, so I set this marble set up for them. This is something my hubby and grandson will use every time they get together, so now it is set up and ready.
The end table in the background continues with the wild kingdom theme.
Plants always make every arrangement prettier and I love this little votive candle holder too.
Just enough color and spice. This room definitely has a more masculine feel now.
With just a few tweaks I decided to add a small tablescape to the dining table.
I just usually have a centerpiece on the table, but a few placemats and a tablesetting has it all ready to get together with friends this weekend.
Leopard placemats compliment the leopard pillows on the sofa.
A simple place setting is all we need for a casual meal. I think we will just grill some steaks and have a fabulous fresh salad.
This is the centerpiece that I already had, feathers, grass and berries. I will remove it when we eat.
That's it for the dining area, just a casual setting to compliment the living area since they are all one room.
Thanks for stopping by for my Fall Home Tour Part 11. I always love having you here and be sure to check out my Part 1 too.
Maybe I should use bold colors more often, what do you think?
Be sure to get all your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday. Party goes live Monday afternoon at 3 PM CMT. Can't wait to see you there.
