Inspiration Board: Masculine + Feminine Living Room

This is the first of a new series, Inspiration Boards. In these sets I like to start out with one inspiration piece, and the rest goes from there. In this set, it all started with this beautiful rug, which I sort of thought had the best of both worlds: Masculine colors + feminine shapes. Next came the Lennox Sofa from Crate & Barrel, coupled with some coordinating throw pillows from Room and Board, Crate & Barrel and Urban Outfitters. Then I saw this floral-esque wall mirror which I thought mimicked the floral patterns in the rug nicely. Butch the Bulldog is definately a masculine touch that adds some nice whimsy and texture, and the decorative balls from IKEA add texture as well. The coffee table is the perfect color for this set and features a matching end table, and not to mention, is a great deal. And finally, this double gourd table lamp. I chose flooring in a deep chocolate wood which compliments the entire set perfectly. (Links and pricing below)
