Making a Statement

>Before my daughter moved to their new apartment, she searched Craig's List to find a sofa. They wanted to make a step up from the futon they had in the living room of their first apartment.
She searched and searched and then one day she sent me a picture, to ask
my opinion, of a sofa she had fallen in love with. When I saw it I knew it was the perfect choice. My daughter has always been a young lady who has a style of her own, the girl with enough confidence to wear almost any fashion. Fortunately she married a wonderful guy who enjoys her distinctive flair. They purchased this fabulous down-filled antique Victorian couch which became the statement piece and the inspiration for our paint choice.
We didn't pick a color that matched the sofa, but instead went with a color that would compliment it, as well as the existing light green walls in the adjoining kitchen. We chose a historic paint color at Lowe's. It's La Fonda Villa Fountain 5002-4B in Valspar's satin paint.I painted two opposing walls this fantastic color and the remaining two walls were painted a crisp bright white.
Once the furniture was moved in, the decorating fun began!
A beautiful old ceiling tin was hung in the nook above the tv.To add light to the side of the room that has no outlets, we hung this beautiful capiz shell chandelier above the mirrored end table.

They have a real mix of design styles, from antiques to items from the Swedish furniture store, yet everything mixes into a stylish, eclectic, modern, and elegant combination.They love their new apartment!
I had fun painting, designing and decorating.
I'll share more details of the apartment in the coming posts.
