  1. How should I decorate my cranberry red living room?

    My husband and I just painted our living room cranberry red. I'm starting to think about decorating ideas, but am having a hard time figuring out what will work with the bright color and home style. It's a 1920's bungalow, so I want to keep that old, comfortable style and mix it up with some classic Pottery Barn designs. We have a greenish/brown Pottery Barn couch, oversized club chair, brown rectangular ottoman (used as a coffee table alternative), and a beige/sage Persian rug. I was thinking of black and white photographs of places we've visited, but I need other options. Maybe vintage Parisian/Italian posters? Would that be too busy/much? What suggestions do you have for accent table finishes, wall decor, and picture frame finishes? Also, is it okay to have brown wood furniture with black-framed wall art?

It is too cold on most days to take the girls outside, so I need some new ideas! Any suggestions would be great because I feel like we do the same things every day and are getting a rut. Thanks!
