I LOVE the terrariums. Does anyone know what the best plants are for making these?

Everyone, thanks so much for all of the pointers. I think that I'm leaning now toward leaving the front door alone and finding some sort of matching...curtains or roman shades...for the french doors and side window. I hadn't thought of painting the french doors or the front door and I'm not really leaning in that direction. I still need to think everything over, but this has been a big help!


Curtain Suggestions for My "Wall of Windows"? Good Questions | Apartment Therapy Los Angeles

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

I can't change the structure because I'm in a condo. I actually don't mind the french doors right next to the front door. The french doors are right in front of my dining room table, so they are kind of nice.

Marcee-ah, I've actually seen those seasonal flag, and while they are nice, they're not really my style. But thanks for the suggestion.

akay, I'll look into the top down/bottom up shades. They're pretty cool!

I've sort of been considering a bamboo roman shade for the front door and some light colored linen curtains for the french doors. Thoughts?

I have the one in the picture, actually. And I get a lot of compliments on it.

The only problem...sometimes the gardener in my condo complex lifts it up to sweep underneath and then puts in back down in reverse, so it tells all my neighbors to "Go Away." Haha!

I went today to pick up the rug and saw a 48" dining table with chairs on it, and sitting down around the table, it all actually worked quite fine.

Also, ended up with a 45" diameter table today, so that should also buy a few inches. It may be close, but I think all of the chairs will look fit (and look good) on the rug.

I'll try it out. Crate and Barrel has a great return policy. I'll post pics to update. Thanks for all of the advice... although I'm going against some of it!

Is a Square Table with a Round Rug a Bad Design Choice? Good Questions | Apartment Therapy DC

Wow! Thanks for all of the advice. I actually think I just found the right round table. It's 45" in diameter. Would a 6' round rug be large enough?

I'm moving into a condo that is on the first floor and something like this could help my peace of mind while I am gone.

On first impression, you're greeting with a big entertainment center directly on the left and an armchair right in front of you.

Have you considered mounting the TV to the wall or perhaps moving the TV to the corner? Or even mounting it to the shorter wall by the staircase?

I think if you can rearrange the room so that the sectional can move around to the wall that your tv is currently on and then you move the armchair so it's not in front of you when you first walk in, you may be on to something.

I love your color choices. What type of blue paint is that in the living room?

What's the rule as far as primer goes? With the walls being so light, do you guys think I'll need it?

I like the Yolo paints because you can order large swatches that use the actual paint and then stick it to the wall. I think I'll order Water 3, 4, 5, and perhaps Dream 5 and see which stand out.

Anyone have thought on Dream 5 from Yolo?

I'm drawn to both that and the Water 5 above. Perhaps I should use both?

Flamingo - I love your choice of accents, especially metallic bronze, sky blue, and cream. I agree that I need an area rug and do like cream as a choice.

Should the area rug be for under the sofa/coffee table or larger?

Wow! Thanks for the comments! I'm definitely looking for a modern, yet cozy and inviting atmosphere. I'd like to put some interesting mirrors over the sofa to reflect a bit more light into the room and I'm definitely not opposed to some cool art. I wouldn't mind a bold color, but don't want the place to look busy or offputting.

Of the Yolo Paints, I'm immediately drawn to Water 5. In my current apartment I once used Behr's Greensleeves - before my manager made me repaint...I actually loved it.

It wasn't very bright, but it was very inviting. My furniture at the time was more jewel tones than neutrals, so it worked. Would that dark of a color drown out the room?
