NY Good Questions: Furniture Palette for My Living Room?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I moved out of an apartment and into a small house more than a year ago and the living room is still an overwhelming cavern of blankness.

I simply don't know how to put together a furniture palette for my living room...

Every once in awhile I see an AT posting that showcases an assemblage of old and new furniture pulled together into a great style and I think to myself, “That’s what I want!!” So I’m sending this out as a plea for help.

The only things I have in the living room are a sofa (DWR Parcel) and two chairs (70's teak chairs from Grandma, the background is the garage) what I need is everything else: floor lamp, table lamp, rug, coffee table, end table, bookshelves, etc.

Basically all the things that make a room unique.

I like natural colors (brown, bronze, green) and natural textures (bamboo, wood) and I have a very hazy vision/goal of a modern garden conservatory-esque room, but I don’t even really know what I mean by those words.

Can the readers offer any direction/help/therapy?

Thanks! Ruth
