The correct balance of color is important in a room. I am currently working on replacing a sofa and chairs in my own home. I purchased an antique rug at the High Point market that I will work from. I find myself not wanting to go away from neutral furniture and I want to keep my antique fabric pillows that I have collected over the years. With all the beautiful fabrics available to us, I go back to the basics when I am decorating for myself, but I consider it a fresh start. My blank canvas includes a sofa, three chairs and of course the rug. There will be all shades of blue for pillows that I currently have. As I find them, I will add more. I do like a lot of texture and will mix those on the seating arrangement. We will keep our brown worn leather chair and ottoman that my husband loves. I do not plan to paint and the wall color is Light House Landing by Benjamin Moore. When I am finished, I will be sure to let you guys see how it turns out!
