Call Me Crazy

My lovely office/formal living room, pictured above as it is now, is undergoing a very slow makeover.

to do list:
paint walls a light, warm gray and trim abobe white (creamy white)
new sofa, see below
wall art, see below
I can't believe it, but I chose the fabric above to go on the sofa my grandmother is giving me. The sofa is a curved sectional with a low back that curves all the way around to form the arms, separate pillows for the back, and very deep seating. The fabric is very soft, like bedding, but because of the thickness, it is very durable. I second guessed myself, but finally just went with it, and now I can't wait to see it!
I love this inspiration photo (design by samantha pynn from hgtv's pure design), in particular, the ledges above the credenza. I can see this along the long blank wall opposite the television, behind where the sofa will be. It would make an adventure for me to hunt for great photo frames, maybe while antiquing or going to yard sales. I love this look!
This is a great light, warm gray color. (design by john jacob interiors, designer's own home) The room will have accents of cream and black. For the curtains, I may try to find a great print using cream and black, and may even try my hand at making simple rod pocket panels to hang on the outer edges of the windows. (You can't tell from the top photo, but there is an identical window on the other side of the television. ) It is a work in progress, as is everything in my life these days!
