Monochromatic Living Room

Happy Friday!! Ready for more decorating talk? Today I went to IO Metro to purchase a few new pieces for our living room! We're doing a custom sofa and let me tell ya, I'm a little nervous!! What if I don't like the finished product? It's not returnable so it's ours whether we like it or not. It's a big decision. I really do think I'm going to love it though . Scott and I have had our minds set on this sofa for a few weeks now but taking the custom plunge--scary!!! Here's my inspiration for our living room. For a really long time now I've wanted to decorate with very pale colors and do a monochromatic look. We've always had reds and browns and I'm wanting to move away from that and do whites and grays. I saw this photo and fell in love with the set up. After hunting for months we came across the perfect copycat option! Scott and I have always wanted a sectional. We ordered this one in a really pale gray fabric like the inspiration photo above. We're also getting these two chairs and putting that little accent table in between. I love the chairs! They're just what I was looking for.
We're currently on the hunt for a square glass coffee table. Preferably one that has a bottom shelf. It's proved to be a challenge! I feel like I've searched everywhere and I haven't found anything.
We found a really cool rug at Lighting Emporium. It's all neutral but has a small hint of pale blue to help give the room some color. I also have a beautiful canvas that I bought in China that is hand painted, super textured and done in a lot of different colorful pales to make it all blend perfectly together. I knew when I went to China that I wanted to do the grays/whites so I bought the painting with my future living room in mind!
To complete the room we're going to do a white/creamy almost velvety like curtain just like the inspiration photo. Again, it may be a few months before we do curtains but I'm glad I already found the fabric that I want to have them made in because that can sometimes be tough to find.
Here's the living room that all of that monochromatic goodness will be placed in! It's not the best photo but you get the idea. This was such a big decorating decision and I made it official today! Time to celebrate! Enjoy your weekend.
