This fall I did a living room refresh, taking away the teal and yellow summer look to bring in a mix of navy, gold, grey and wood. Last fall I designed the room in the plum palette, and though I loved that look as well it was time to try a new mix. This next week my family will be coming for Thanksgiving weekend (as in 21 people) and my house will be the center of activities. It will be snug and a good reason to make sure everything is cozy and ready.
You may remember my post on styling my mantel for fall. I designed this in a neutral and gold palette, knowing I was going to be adding the blue rug. I think the biggest visual change in the room is the colorful rug. I found this gorgeous navy quatrefoil wool rugrel at Wayfair.com a few months ago and decided to use this as my starting point adding in the golds and natural materials. The other smaller furniture changes were to support my idea of adding more modern into my mix, as I love having the unexpected. This mid-century style grey chair was another Wayfair find as well as the gold metal end table. Both pieces are compact and a perfect fit for the space. Once the furniture was in place, it was time to mix up what I already had and add in a few new accessories. Take a tour with the photo below and I will share all of my sources for this gorgeous navy blue and gold look.
