The Flex Room’s Half-Way Point

The front living space we refer to as the “flex room” is gaining a little momentum!

After falling hard for a green velvet sofa, things about this room’s look and feel began to click for me.

The rug, wall art, sofa (obviously!), and curtains are all staying, but I see some more texture in here in the form of wood and/or metal (a round coffee table). and 1 or 2 chairs, lighter in appearance than the overstuffed white Kivik chair (which has yet to receive a new assignment somewhere else in the house!).

I had to see the sofa in play under the windows to get a feel for what focal point (art?) might best work on the wall’s blank space. The hunt is on!

For now, I’m stroking the velvet sofa, soaking up all the natural light for which I love this room so much…and contemplating just how big an eye roll I’ll get when I suggest to my handier half that we do some built-ins on this north wall? 🙂

Fun progress, and more to come!

    • Hi Emer,
      The frames are from Target and the set of prints I found on jane.com (they often take down listings after several days, then relist them again if they’re popular — so keep an eye out!) A quick search on etsy for “botanical prints” found me all sorts of options, as well.
