Our Florida living room is a real mix of old and new pieces, making for a very relaxed vibe. The pottery barn sofa is slip covered in white linen, but because everyone seems to like napping on this massive sofa and curling up with their feet on it, I took two very old postcard quilts and covered the seating areas. They don't match in color, but I like the mix of the new linen and the old soft, many times washed cotton. They can easily be tossed in the wash rather than wash the entire slip cover.
The wing chair was my mothers, and although 1980's dusty rose underneath, is slipped in white. The rug is new (Dash and Albert from my store), the pillows a mix of old bark cloth made into pillow slip and a few new ones from Pine Cone Hill. The coffee table was an old 1980's table that had a peachy tone and painted vines. While hip when I bought it, I painted it white. Farm stool in front of wing chair and blue painted end table are flea market finds. The metal table with the lamp on it was the Raz Man's creation. He had his metal shop copy an old metal locker that we found years ago. It's on wheels and I like the industrial vibe mixed with the cottage like furnishings. Old rose paintings and ancient seashells from auctions fill the gaps. This room is totally for lounging, napping and piling on the sofa for drinks and chatter.
I thought it would be a good fit for Nita's Mod Mix Monday found HERE
