Media Maven

A bedroom in the back of my house is being requisitioned for the big screen. A small flat screen will tuck into a cabinet next to the fireplace to allow simultaneous fall football + crackling fire viewing in the living room. But primary Netflix streaming/Real Housewives following will occur in the new media room, where I'm currently focusing all remodelista activities (heavily influenced by The Novogratz). The room's existing white walls & shutters, and ebony hardwoods, will be the foundation.

The motivation behind the vivid color scheme is this large scale photograph -- a total impulse buy during my first trip to Charleston, South Carolina in 2006 (1st in the artist's original series of 25).

This hot pink canvas will upholster a Charlotte sectional

Greek key Trina Turk cocktail napkins will probably be most often found on this lucite waterfall table

1 turquoise + 1 lime pouf will provide surfaces for sitting or foot-resting

Everything will perch atop this candy-striped rug

India gets a new Fatboy dog bed

And a pair of 1960's wrought iron patio tables providing cocktail perches on either side of the Charlotte, will be topped with fabulous vintage chrome yellow lamps (a recent ebay find) with some big white drum shades.
