Dream design

I had some fun on Polyvore last night - it's always exciting for me to just play with interior design. I started out with this statement sofa, added a rug and some chairs, and this fantasy living room just expanded from there!

I really love mixing eras of furniture, price points, and patterns. For me, this room would be in an older home, maybe 1850's, with beautiful woodwork detail and hardwood (maybe parquet) floors. Of course somewhere there would be built-in bookcases, maybe surrounding the double-door entrance from the dining room. Isn't it fun to imagine the parties here?

I had so much fun with this post, I'm going to try to make it a regular feature. Time to cut loose and enjoy design, maybe even break some "rules" while we're at it!
