Navy & White Living Room Reveal


I had a tough decision to make last night …


words …


or pictures?


And would it be okay to post the pictures without the words?


The whole photographing and editing pictures of my navy and white living room remodel took much longer than I antcipated …


Which led to an internal debate of whether I should just post the pictures with a “here it finally is …”


Or wait and compose words to go with the pictures …


You know, like telling you about how the wall color is Sherwin Williams Naval …




And how the amazing ceiling fan came from Lamps Plus

Along with the amazing mirror; from Lamps Plus too  …




I could also tell you how the rug started it all …

Or how I’m in love with my table that I painted with navy and white stripes …




Or the fabrics …


don’t get me started on the fabrics …

    We are going with a Sherwin Williams nautical room too. My wife chose a darker “Dignity” blue.
    I am having trouble picking the white. What color white did you use?
