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....

Join  us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap up          party!

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 now I have to list some stuff on craigslist.
