The New Home - Living Room Part 1

We recently moved from our overcrowded project house from hell cute starter cottage to my grandma's 1960's two story home in the city. The kids have their own rooms, there's a bathroom for the girls and  the boys to get ready in the morning, and the yard is complete with heavily laden apple, pear, and plum trees.

As excited as we are to start our pseudo farm from scratch, it's going to be labor intensive. The indulgent fun is in planning the home decor. Today I'm starting with the living room. I'm not a design expert, so I'm sure my methods are unorthodox, but I began by determining the "fixed" portion of the color palette. (There  is no budget for buying new furniture and Philip is far to busy to build any right now.) Then I began brainstorming possible accents. I had a stroke of luck when Dana at MADE posted her Pinterest picks for autumn yesterday. The end result was my fixed palette and the optional accent colors below.
