Designed Another Room

There's a room design challenge going on in Virginia Beach and I'm not eligible to enter it. But that's not enough to keep me from at least putting a room together.

The theme of the challenge is design a 10'x14' room of your choice with an 80's theme, all with furnishings from Value City Furniture, for no more than $3,000. The paint selection is from PPG Paints. I'm calling my family room, "Miami Vice."

My total for the furnishings is $2,288.92. I'd probably add a mirror that matches the tables and some other incidentals: pink candles, knick-knacks, some light blue and teal throw pillows, and photos in some light aqua frames. I'd probably also add some color to the Franklin table lamp shades by adding a bit of thin pink ribbon to the tops and bottoms of the shades, held in place with a little glue.

I'd have one wall be white and the others would be the third shade of blue on the bottom row above. I'd do any interior doors in the darkest shade of blue shown, and the trim in the room would be the lightest blue shown. I'd hang the white canvas print on one of the blue walls, and I'd use the ottoman as additional seating, up against one of the walls, below the print. The tallest table shown would be used as a console table behind the sofa.  The square table would sit next to the chair, and the lowest table would be in the center of the room, as a coffee-type table.

The images here on my white board are a little more pixelated than usual, but that's because I did this one in PowerPoint instead of my usual Photoshop. Got to remember to stick to Photoshop next time. It looks better.
