Dream Home - Great Room - Living Area

I apologize for the delay in posts, I've been completely consumed by a new project of mine which I will post about later once it's complete. In the mean time, here is the inspiration board for my Great Room living Area.

Dream Home - Living Room

I'm going with the 60/30/10 rule. Sixty percent browns and khakis, thirty percent blues, and ten percent coral. I would love a couch similar to the one above from Pottery Barn in a camel color. I love the chaise lounge aspect to it, so that is a must. Z must have a nice leather recliner so I'm thinking a chocolate brown color would be perfect. For the island aspect, I'll include the pretty rattan side chair as well, Pottery Barn, World Market and Pier 1 all have some great options.

As accents to the seating area I would go with the neutral sea creature pillows mixed with coral pillows and some blue striped pillows (I love stripes!).

The painting of Pele - Hawaiian Goddess of fire - is the perfect piece for over the TV stand from World Market. The coordinating shelves will be perfect places for our keepsakes from around the world - which I have pictures of but they are on our external hard drive and I am feeling lazy right now.

To tie everything together, I think this rug from MItchell Gold and Bob WIlliams would be awesome:


Lastly, I absolutely adore this look of board and batten, but with a khaki wall color:


What do you think? Next up, the kitchen....

Great choices. You are going to have to tell me more about the 60/30/10 rule. I am a interior design zero. So I need help. Eventually, once we get out to the farm, I'm really going to need some help.

Love your choices! I love the look of the board & batten too. I bought the paint, can't wait! And, my tables came yesterday...so now I have to list some stuff on craigslist.
