The Living Room Makeover Continues with Comfort Works

My living room must be confused...
every time I settle on one thing I change my mind.
Which tells me I have not quite found the right combination.

I was loving my living room.
I revamped it a little with some paint,
but something was still not-quite-me.
I loved the funky vintage vibe that was happening,
but I also have a slightly modern bold side to me.
(I have never really shown you those art pieces and murals)

Then, Country Living published their "What's Country Now?" Issue and it feature this living room on the cover...and I fell in love. I already had the wall color happening. I love red, and this was a great inspiration for meshing country and modern as least to me.

I was inspired by the look of this room - I felt the need to make changes to get closer to this look, but wanted to make it mine, not simply copy this room. I have started the process, but still have details to finish up - bit-by-bit - but I feel it - this is it!

I began to make plans, and about that time, an Australian Company called Comfort Works contacted me through The DIY Club, offering me the opportunity to review one of their products. Comfort Works has "over 100 different fabrics designs and blends." They specialize in customizing IKEA Sofa Covers, Curtains, Pillows, Coverlets and Cushion Slipcovers. Currently their slipcovers only are for IKEA sofas,
BUT not their other products and I was SOLD on their curtains.

I was sent some swatches to look over and was really impressed with their quality.
I selected Pinch Pleat Curtains
in Antoinette Desert Rose
When my curtains arrived, I did a happy dance!
The fabric is a great quality,
the lining excellent and the way they hang makes me smile!
I even received two pillow cushion covers - just what I needed!
I am seriosuly impressed and quite happy with the colors,
and quality from Comfort Works.
I just wished they made slipcovers for non-IKEA couches - boy do I need those!

I am so happy with the difference these curtains
from Comfort Works made in my living room.
I hope to paint my (very large) brick fireplace in a shade of white,
and I have some new pillows and art I am working on -
all with pops of red!
And, there is a great ottoman in the works too!

I wish I was a better photographer...or had a better camera...
it looks awesome in person,
but I have had some trouble capturing the right color/exposure in the image.


Do you redecorate or revamp as much as me? UGH!
If so, why? Or care to share your tricks?

  13. If I had the funds I think I would drive everyone crazy, so it's probably a good thing I don't. The room looks lovely. Nice lighting BTW - LOL! I can never get that to work here.

  14. Very pretty! I love the curtains and I can't wait to see the whole look pulled together!

    I don't redecorate as often as I used to. There was a time when I was changing paint colors every few months. Now, I change out accessories from time to time to freshen things up, but I leave the walls alone! We really could use some new living room furniture, though. Ours is looking a bit worn.
