What they had: a beautiful new home in Allen, recently purchased rug and seating, with a TV front and center!
Both with book shelves flanking the fireplace and a TV over the mantle, an ordinary citizen may have been stumped. But Decorating on a Shoe String saved the planet by pulling in some of our favorite colors from the rug with affordable pottery. We kept the multiple shelves from being too repetitive with, yes, affordable art!
Though there was very little wall space (because of a bank of windows overlooking the Twin Creeks Golf Course!) we were able to add extra color by stacking art next to the bar. At Weir’s Outlet in Addison we found a gorgeous painted piece to use as a sofa table, inserting more color into the room at the same time.
Then we gave the room a slightly less predictable look and maximized the view by angling everything towards the windows.
We accomplished all of our goals for this room, to the delight of the home owners, and now we’re off to the next room in their lovely Allen home!
