Turquoise and Coral Living Room Makeover

Spring Living Room Makeover1

I was sorting through photos tonight and came across these shots I took of my living room last spring. I’ve always been a fan of turquoise but when I added coral into the mix, this room really came to life.

I couldn’t resist these pretty pillow covers by Caitlin Wilson. You can purchase them at Caitlin Wilson Textiles.

The bookcases and end tables came from American Drew Furniture. The pretty aqua recliners and couch came from La-Z-Boy Furniture Gallery. Who knew La-Z-Boy recliners could look this good? They’ve come a long way since the sloppy, unattractive (but comfortable) chairs of my youth. The coral Suraya Archive floor cloth came from RugsUSA. The black and white curtains came from Pottery Barn, my absolute favorite place to shop.

Little Stevie likes to help me accessorize the room during photo shoots.

Steve on the Coffee Table

Stevie can do things that my big dogs can’t do, like hang out on the coffee table. I keep shooing him off, but you can see how well that’s going….


Steve on high alert. Is that a squirrel? Must. Get. Him.

      Thanks, Shree. Now, if only I could keep Steve off of the furniture.

        Awwww but whyyyy? My Jack Russel loves “owning” the couch at home too..and our beds..but at least the couch covers are a dark brown..not the pristine white that you have!

          Well, its not always pristine, thanks to Steve and Marty, the little black and white dog depicted in my avatar.

    Beautiful colour combo, and I really love those cushion covers. Gotta love pets, always where they shouldn’t be! Your dog is very, very cute though :)

    Your house is lovely and I love the colours you have chosen but I think little Stevie steals the show!

    This color combo reminds me of the quilt I’m making for my niece’s wedding. The colors are medium blue and salmon ( a fancy name for coral, I guess). These are also her wedding colors. There are 30 blocks and I used 15 different blues. I made some salmon blocks too, but I think they will go on the back as they seem to stick out too much. The wedding is in four weeks but I haven’t even sewn the blocks together yet. Wish me luck!

      That sounds fabulous, Pamela. You’ll pull it off in time. I can’t wait to see the completed quilt.
