The Room Of No Purpose

There is a room in my house that was known for many years as The Room Of No Purpose. I blogged about it for the first time here. It has gone through a couple of big cleanups since then. But in the last couple of months, my ability to stash has ramped up to epic levels. The room has now been renamed The Land of Lost Clothes. I’ve even theorized that when the door is closed, they complain to each other about their ill treatment and banishment. Sort of like the old, forgotten toys in Toy Story. 🙂

One thing that I have noticed about myself, is that if a room is furnished and decorated, it stays clean the vast majority of the time. To that end, I have decided to decorate and furnish The Land of Lost Clothes. Here is my plan:

The Long Awaited Blue Living Room

Over the next few months I will be trying to finish the blue living room. I think the most recent picture I have posted of it is this:

Here is some of what will be going into the room, along with some of what is already there.

This is the first time I have used Polyvore. There were some items that it wouldn’t let me clip. And some that I couldn’t find on the internet anymore, because I have been buying stuff for this room for too long.

Pillows and throws not on Polyvore design board.

BTW- I am becoming less and less sure about the very orange pillows every day. So I think those will probably go. I still have not figured out the coffee table situation, or the windows. I am thinking of using this fabric for both:

Richloom Lucy in Licorice

What do you think? Opinions and suggestions, please! I can take it. 🙂
