Collage: Dream Living Room

27 Mar

Ever since I laid eyes on the one-day living room makeover by Peter Dunham in House Beautiful a couple of months ago, I can’t stop thinking about how I would reinterpret it for my own home. Here is a collage, inspired by this fantasy.

The room’s components:

The Verano Sofa by Crate & Barrel.

A pair of antique French leather club chairs. (I’ve always wanted these!)

Ikat 8 Rug by Luke Irwin.

All fabrics are from Kathryn Ireland’s Mexico Meets Morocco line. (This is not the first time I have mentioned these gorgeous fabrics!) The larger pattern is called , and it would be the curtain panels. Pillows for the sofa would be of Moroccan Stripe in Flame and Casablanca in Sky/Mustard. The Tangiers print in the right corner would be on a little footstool or as lumbar pillows in the club chairs.

Other furniture pieces might include the following from West Elm: Whitewash Metal and Wood bookcase, the turned pedestal side table and possibly one of their many suitable coffee tables.

A girl can dream, can’t she? When it’s time to replace our sofa, a day that is fast approaching as our current one wears out, I will try my best to get the Verano sofa.  I’ve got to start somewhere!

    Your gorgeous white sofa is wearing out? Just surprised. I adore the one you have picked out here.

      Yes, it’s become terribly uncomfortable… it still looks good, but it’s killing our backs! Good thing we don’t watch too much TV=)

    I LOVE Peter Dunham! I just did a post the other day where I tried to duplicate a room from the Rich residence that he designed. You might like it, too:
