So, as some of you may know J and I bought and moved into a new house last September. It has been a bit of a slog getting all the rooms done to my satisfaction, but at this point I'm pretty happy with everything (of course, the decorating will never be "done" I will always be adding/subtracting--after all, isn't that the fun of your own house?) But there are a couple of areas that seem to need something that I can't put my finger on, and I was hope you might help!
This is our front room, the "piano room" It's not really used for much besides us walking through the front door and dropping our stuff there and me everyonce in a while practicing the piano. We got this chaise from my aunt and it's super comfortable and has great upholstery, but I feel like somethings missing. Is it as simple as a rug? Is it the table beside it? The proportion between the chaise and lamp? I can't quite put my finger on it, but don't really want to run out and buy stuff until I do. I'm hoping it just needs a rug. What do you all think?
And here is our bedroom. I am very pleased with it because we just painted/finished it last month and so I am still happy about that. Here is the secret, our whole master suite (if you will) is in the basement of the house. Except for the tile floor, does it look like a basement? I hope not. Anyway, the question is this: What kind of art over the bed? My immediate thought was two vertical pieces over each of the side tables. J's thought was a to go horizontal. I'm iffy about that because the wall space over the headboard is small. Any thoughts?
Also, the floor throughout the bedroom is tile, which I don't love. (chilly!) I originally wanted either a huge area rug (super expensive) or carpet ( i know, I will be burned at the stake for saying that) to make it cozy and plush. But now that we have divided the room into bed/sitting room and threw down some rugs we have, I don' t know that it's that bad. Maybe just something for under the bed? What do you think, are you offended by the tile?
