A Work In Progress

Let me introduce you to another room in my home: The Bonus Room (I think I could come up with a more clever name than that)…

This was the first fully furnished room in the house when we moved in because we used all our previously owned furniture. The scheme was warm colours –  reds, browns, and greens. The problem was that the room didn’t really flow with the rest of the house so I recently began the process of redecorating it. At the moment, it looks a little bit like a dog’s breakfast!

I purchased these pillow covers from the Pillow People on Etsy and they have inspired the colour scheme for the whole  room:

I have big plans to do the following:

– Paint (I am thinking Rain Dance by Benjamin Moore)

-Replace the coffee table

– Get new artwork

– Redecorate the book shelves

– Put roman blinds on the windows

– Get new lamps for the sidetables

I put together this mood board to give you an idea what I eventually want to do with this room. This coffee table is from West Elm and I think it is fabulous! It’s fairly reasonably priced, but I need to figure out how exorbitant their shipping costs to Canada are before I fall in love with it!

Stay tuned as I keep you updated with the progress of this room!
