etsy ecstasy: living room

i get easily bored and often dream of giving our living room a face lift.  when it comes down to it, i dont have the money or energy to make it happen all at once, but i love browsing through etsy to get some great ideas.  by the time i could afford to put all these items together, i know my taste would change completely. 

here are a few of my favorite pics from etsy that could easily spice up our living room (click the pics to shop)

i would start with this neutral, inexpensive area rug:
 Woven area rug in a Modern and Classy gray background
$109.95 at House of Henderson


add in some color with these throw pillows
(note: we have a sofa and love seat and both are a boring dark chocolate color)
  
Guatemalan Hand Woven Throw Pillow
14x14 for $43 at Tamarind Tree Boutique





Both Decorative Pillow Covers are from Turquoise Tumbleweed  ($59 and $42)


a vintage tray for the ottoman:
Vintage Silver Plate Tray for $25 at Hope and Joy Home
this throw would be perfect for cuddling up to read a good book:
Mustard Crocheted Throw Blanket for $95 at Joyce Buckley   

i cant decide on the curtains, but im thinking something simple:
Custom LARGE Horizontal Stripe Full Length Curtain Panels
for $160 at Tuft Love Fabric
this sweet print would be great for the bookshelf or to hang beside the front door:
   
Home Is Where the Heart Is Gold & Silver Print for $11 at Heart and Craft

 and frame this print that a friend gave me for christmas:
Art Print, Birds on Vintage Inspired Books at Contemporary Earth Art

------------------------------------------------------

my total, not including tax, shipping or framing that last print, comes to $544.95 ... not too bad! 

to see what our living room kinda looks like now, click here.  it looks a lot different, but you can get the basic idea of what the furniture, bookcase and wall color looks like.
