Long ago my Husband and I fell in love with the American Riveria (Santa Barbara and surrounding areas. Since then we've striven to recreate that uniquely California style. This room is true to its European heritage in every respect. It old and new. This is a room with provenance.
In this room I made all the pillows and the headboard. I cut the headboard out of plywood covered it with a faux tooled leather and made bamboo accents tied with a rough twine. The art to the right was made from an old frame sprayed gold. I put a velvety red backboard on it and cut and aged gold paper squares and arranged them in a falling pattern. The window treatment was a Bali blind sheer curtains and mini-bamboo lights along. Accents a few beautiful tropical flower pieces.

In this extra bedroom turned library, I combined dark cocoa colored walls, modern translucent book shelves, heavy wooden pieces, open-weave wool curtains and a mid-century-style sofa which unfolds flat for extra guest sleeping accomodation.

My first techie-minded attempt at creative decorating on a budget. British Colonial semi-formal living room with British classic/traditional furniture accented by ethnic, Asian, and West Indian pieces.
Desert beige walls, with rich jewel tone red and green accents, coffered ceiling, marble fireplace with mantle, cherry hardwood floors. Comfortable khaki colored sofa with nail head trim, chinoiserie small table between classic wood-framed black leather chairs, leather tufted cocktail ottoman, carved pineapple and bamboo inspired end tables displaying Asian lamps, and a British classic entertainment center highlighting leather bound books and ethnic/asian pieces. Oriental rug, Thai silk curtains, and a hand carved giraffe from Kenya to round out the look.
This is the only living room/family room in the house, and I was hoping for an elegant but livable space to watch television and entertain on occasion. This room had the largest portion of the 2700 sq ft. house budget, as it's the heart of the house.
Out with the college junk, and in with the new house and the grown up furniture. How'd this techie girl do for her first time out?
