Day 781: my own 'dark' room
I've been enjoying "darker" rooms so much lately (here, here, and here), I'd thought I make one of my own. This beautiful black-painted Swedish secretary* sets the tone, with Farrow & Ball's Vert a Terre on the walls (okay, so I couldn't go too dark!). That sofa is on the floor in local shop and I have to visit it now and then -- it's so pretty! It is closer to charcoal than it appears here. I think it's this one by Lee Industries. Maybe I'm feeling fall coming on, but I think it'd look delightful with a pair of soft leather chairs. A fun little accent chair in a printed linen would round out the seating. This cocktail table makes my heart pitter-patter, and is just the right touch of glam. Simple color-bound seagrass over hardwood floors is just the right amount of texture. A pair of carved urn lamps would flank the sofa. And speaking of lighting, I think my new old lantern would be just lovely.
*Did I mention this is a fantasy room? That secretary probably costs more than my entire living room.
