Today I am showing you what I have done so far in my living room.
First you see that the quilted throw I tacked above the couch is two colors, a goldish yellow and white.
Since I have the flower patchwork quilt on the opposite wall, I didn’t want to add too much wall color decor to the living room right now.
I might take down the quilt I made years ago, along with the two miniature quilts I on either side, at some point. But I’m not ready to do that right now.
One of my boho craft ideas is to perhaps make a long string of colored beads and drape it across the top of this quilted throw above the couch. I certainly have enough beads and such on hand to do that.
You also see a new orange pillow on the couch that I found on clearance at Home Goods. I only purchased the one pillow. The others I already had in the closet.
You also see two boho macrame wall hangings on the wall on either side of the quilted throw. I ordered them from Amazon.com.
The lavender and purple table you see by the front door has been out on the patio for several years.
Below you see another new wall display that I created with 2 place mats and 2 wood wall flowers I placed at either end of the wall quilt. All from HL for half price.
I just nailed the place mats on either side of the quilt and then tacked on the little wood flowers. I thought about painting the wood flowers, but at this point I’m not planning to do that.
Right now I am leaving the enlarged photos I took when one day when driving out in the countryside that are on the wall on one side of the living room window. I might switch that up at some point.
But I kind of like the dark frames in contrast to the adjoining wall with the lighter quilt and macrame wall hangings.
I bought the house plant painting below for half price at HL. I already had the wooden sign I placed underneath it.
I brought the green vine garland into the living room thinking I might drape it across the wall quilt above the couch. But I didn’t feel that it was long enough.
So as I was taking it back to the bedroom closet and walking past that wall, I had the sudden whim to drape it over the plant painting.
I wasn’t really planning to leave it there. But when I stepped back to look at it more closely I realized I kind of liked it.
So there it stayed.
I had thought that the painting just wasn’t quite enough for this wall. But once I added the vine garland it added enough bulk that I changed my mind.
I love little surprises like that!
Below is how it looks coming from the short hallway that goes to the bathroom and bedroom.
