Sharing a small glimpse of our living room because I had a number of questions regarding sources for some of the items. This little nook is a mix of high/low items. We splurged on the swivel chair + fabric as well as our window treatments but I sourced budget friendly throw pillows, framed intaglios & other decorative objects.
Throw Pillow Source: Stuck on Hue has been my go-to for throw pillows. I worked with the owner Hollie who is super helpful and sourced some fabrics for me that weren’t already in her shop and I also ordered some of her stocked options. I found her prices very fair and the quality and craftsmanship excellent. I have the bowood pattern in size 20 by 20 and Clara B Green 22 x 22 and linked some more of my favorites above.
Intaglios: I got so many questions when I posted an image of my intaglio framed prints last week and I promised I would write down the exact styles for you guys. I selected a total of 4 prints (2 on each side of the fireplace) and went with an oval and square on each side for a mis-matched effect. (#46, #52, #55, #60) I also used the matted fountain blue background , gold frame and a custom size of 16 x 20. Intaglio’s have been used as adornment for thousands of years and are said to attract health + good fortune. I love the hand carved details in each stone and how they pair with our drapery. I went with Sidebard Designs because it was a budget friendly option and they also allowed me to select the frame, background color and specific intaglio styles that resonated with me personally.
Window Treatments & Swivel Chair: I’ve also been receiving a number of questions on where I found my window treatments and swivel chair- they were both made by a local upholster and seamstress. Going the custom route is definitely an investment but in my opinion it’s worth it in the long run especially in areas like the living room, kitchen and master bedroom. The quality of the fabric as well as the trim details really doesn’t compare to anything you’ll find at a pottery barn etc. My recommendation would be to find a local seamstress in your town (Facebook groups are a good place for recommendations) the seamstress can help you with the whole process from selecting fabric and trim , measuring your windows, and creating and installing the drapery and/or shade styles you’re looking for. You can also try the etsy route- I’ve heard great things about this shop if you’re comfortable measuring/installing on your own.
