Thoughts on home…the living area

Wow, it’s been an insane week. I moved into my almost finished home on Tuesday (a huge thank you and kisses to: Matty, Dad, Mom + Joel for all your help). To say it has been a busy week is an understatement. My life is pretty much packed in boxes and I still need to set up my office and redo my kitchen. (It is a construction zone without a counter top, sink or finished cabinets). I figure most of my clients undergo kitchen renovations and live in disarray.  I can too!

As most of you know, this was a post divorce downsize for me. The living room area is pretty small so I’m trying to figure out the placement of my furniture..I ordered an 8 x 10 jute rug (it’s coming today) and I plan to layer a smaller version of this rug (or something similar) over it.

I then need to place my furniture and other things..I’m still a bit torn about the arrangement of the tv. I have a den but it won’t be finished for some time as it’s currently a three season room.

I do know I’m dealing with the placement of two large chairs, a little stool or two, a 36″ round zinc table, a book shelf, a dresser (hoping for the tv) and a sofa.
I’m always keeping my eyes open for inspiration. This am I was looking through Domaine. 
I especially like the celebrity section. (mind you, I have a fraction – if that, of their budget)
My living room will also incorporate vintage and new lighting, over sized accessories, artwork, layered pillows and of course design books!
I’m loving Cameron Diaz’s Kelly Wearstler designed space and Molly Sims laid back abode.

Great layered pillows and poufs. She looks so pretty.

 On a side note:

I can’t afford the faucet I want…boo
I might just go with something a like this instead! I also am going to install smaller backsplash tiles much like Molly’s.

That window!? Fab!
