Coral and Turquoise Inspiration!

So I am still working on my living room redo, and since
 I am working on a budget of almost $0, it is going to take sometime!   It's definitely going to be a work in-progress for a little while, but you all will get to see the changes as I am making them.  I have been super happy with the updates that have happened so far, like all of my DIY artwork and the introduction of Karl the Sofa
 You guys have no idea how happy my new sofa makes me!  My old one was a hand-me-down, which I was more than happy to use for a few years while I pay off my college loans.   Now it was not my favorite color, but was in good condition as it had never really been used by it's old owners. Their dogs however would lay on I LOVE dogs, in fact I really, really, REALLY want to get a puppy!  But I am also SUPER allergic to dogs and cats!  This last year I actually started breaking out in hives when I sat on my old sofa, now I vacuumed and steamed cleaned it numerous times and NOTHING help!  
 I actually just thought that if my allergies were ALREADY bothering me, that sitting on my old sofa would just make it worse, I mean who's actually allergic to a sofa?  But it turns out that my old sofa may have actually been the CAUSE of my allergies!  I have not had to take allergy medicine since I bid farewell to the old thing!  So not only do I get to redecorate a new room, I also don't have to deal with allergies all year round!!!!
 ( insert ecstatically huge, happy smile here)
Now I will try to rummage up some old photos of my living room so you can see the before and afters, you will have a much better idea of what I was working with.

But in the mean time I wanted to share with you some inspirations photos for the new look!

I'm thinking of going with a little Coral and Turquoise!

I LOVE this room!


  1. I just completed a china cabinet with this color scheme, I love the combo of turquoise and coral!

  2. I really like this color. reminds me of all those colors that surrounded us on our honeymoon in jamiaca. Blessings, Joanne
