So what happens after a few years? You've loved and loved and loved things, and now the poor dears are starting to show it. The upholstery looks a little faded, the cushions a little less plump.
That's where Julia's living room is. She loves the layout, the colors, the styles, but it needs a little updating to be perfect again. So that's what we're gonna do!
Here is the room as it is now:
We're taking inspiration from the beautiful Oriental rug (that I helped pick out 10 years ago!)
The wing back chair (affectionately nicknamed the Edith Ann chair after Lily Tomlin's character) will be re-upholstered in this fabric:
We're painting the walls Sherwin Williams Hinoki, since she loves the warm tones, but I think it needs to be a bit less yellow.
I'm recommending she update the two ginger-jar lamps with:
this Wrought Iron lamp
This crystal lamp
I also suggest she get an upholstered side chair like
this one to use for a desk chair or additional seating.
