the living room in her new house is filled with gorgeous sunlight. 
i tried to bring in bits of her signature colors (lime green and coral pink) while keeping it sophisticated and warm. 
flea market finds are mixed with handcrafted goodies...
the living room will be tv-free...wooohooooo... as a girl who grew up without one, i love LOVE this. i don't believe that a tv should be your major source of entertainment, where/when you entertain! 

clockwise from top left:
gorgeous vintage sconces for either side of your 
handmade color wheel quilt that will hang above 
a comfy-cozy couch in oat linen... perhaps draped with a sari
flocked with napkins-turned throw pillows.
in front of your windows... light for the evening
a vintage trunk makes for a perfect coffee table... and storage for blankets and board games!
fresh flowers in vintage tea tins seems very "you"
a set of flea-market chairs, reupholstered in something fun and unexpected in front of the windows
with your parent's mid-century tea-cart between them... perfect for coffee table books underneath and coasters on top!
easy sisal rug with a fun cotton binding
amazing moroccan poufs add cheer and some extra perching places
a pair of tall bookcases in the left had corner will add interest and a place for your library.
