Swiss Home Tour: TV Room

If you've been following along for a while now, you might remember this:

or this:

..... the entry for our rented home in Switzerland (intended to be used as our TV room instead); 
as well as some low-budget ideas for "spiffing it up" with bargains from Ballard Designs & Ikea.

Well, here's how it worked out.....

I ended up going with navy velvet drapes from Ikea instead of a canvas with a trim and I "splurged" on the Dash & Albert striped rug to warm up the cold tile...... but other than that it's like a good "remix" of things we already owned and love..... nothing grand for sure; but just right for our crew who loves to cuddle.


  1. I love it! Now I want to paint my bookshelves and get a new tv stand.

  2. So stylish and cozy, love that black floor lamp, and the stripes and monograms! :)

  3. divine! Those windows and beams, gorgeous. That sweet chair makes me smile, so sweet. You have created such a cozy home for your family

  4. Oh I love this room! Perfect for a family night in. Loving the navy curtain choice.

  5. YOur room looks fantastic Crissy! Do you have a Target over there? You've got serious style, and can make anything work, awesome job!

  7. I can tell you these Nutella cookies are FABULOUS!
