Merching the fall catalogs: Living Rooms

Last spring, I created some design boards as a way to share (and play around with) my favorite new pieces in the big box catalogs.  It was such a great way to tune in to the new stuff, I thought I would do it again.

Only, when you click on "new" on most of the store websites, the first gazillion items that come up are Christmas decorations!!! Ugh, so much for getting a jump on fall.

Is it super nerdy that I spent the last two nights making design boards for no one?  Tell you what: it was lots of fun.

First up, a couple of living rooms.

I have to say, Serena and Lily and West Elm have such fabulous art collections now, it was easy to really complete these spaces.  I am way too lazy to list out all the sources, but if you click through to my olioboards, you can then click through to any specific item.  

Stores I perused included:

West Elm
Pottery Barn
Crate and Barrel
World Market
Ballard Design
Schoolhouse Electric
Serena and Lily

and some random etsy bits here and there.

Every time I do this, it makes me want to start all over.  Even though I LOVE all the pieces I have collected over time, and the many stories they have to tell.  

come back tomorrow for bedrooms and Friday for dining rooms, or vice versa.

I could live in either of these rooms.  This is making me want a colorful couch!
