I’ve been working on and off to get our den refreshed; it started out sort of a toffee color (if you scroll to the bottom of this post, you’ll see part of how it used to look) and I’ve been really wanting to brighten it up. We spend a lot of time here, so it was in need of some love! The most recent addition was this gorgeous lamp from Lulu and Georgia, and it gave me the extra incentive needed photograph the room and share. Isn’t it beautiful? I love that avocado green, and the geometric dimension to the base!
It’s the perfect pop of color, and coordinates well with the vintage needlepoint landscape on the wall (a wedding gift to my parents from one of my grandmother’s close friends – I adore it!).
Lulu and Georgia has lots of other great home decor items (their rugs are some of my favorites – see some inspiration here and here!). If you are feeling inspired, they are offering 20% off with the code LAYBABYLAY20 until this Friday, April 4th!
The little “coffee table” is one of the tables my dad made for Vivi’s party, and it’s perfect for this room where we spend a lot of time with the girls, and it’s extra fun styled with some of their favorite books, a definite hit with Vivi.
I’ve posted about these shelves before, but they are one of my favorite features. They are Ikea brackets spray painted gold, and then paired with some old barn wood. I love the effect.
The art was done by Vivi – she aptly named it “the egg.”
Now, if I can just decide what I’d like to do around the TV. It’s on the other wall. I’m really enjoying all the bright white and sunlight in this room now, though!! Thanks so much to Lulu and Georgia for the beautiful lamp – be sure to check out all the lovely inspiration on their site – I can’t stop thinking about this rug.
