A Wonderful Room
I totally missed this issue, however I was lucky enough to read my friend Sherri's copy and oh my goodness! The June 2007 issue of Country Decorating Ideas Flea Market style was brimming with page after page of wonderful decorating ideas.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am looking for a new couch and chairs for the family room. Of course, my hub is happy with what we already have and just doesn't understand why I want to replace them. Back when we bought them they fit right in to the Tuscan-English decor that I was aiming for. But, with time and life changes, I am gravitating towards a casual English Cottage look with a little bit of kitsch.
I love this room, even though it is a little too busy for me, but the colors and the accessories are right up my alley. I am especially fond of the red toile fabrics and the green painted furniture! This is totally the look that I am leaning towards.
So in the meantime, I am stashing my pennies away and taking my time finding the right piece. This little sofa in the pictures looks like you could just sink down into it and relax with a good book and a cup of tea....but first move some of the pillows so they don't get smooshed!
