Crazy for Blues and Oranges: Family Room Re-Do

It is time to say goodbye to our green family room rug.  Greenie proved to be very durable (endured baby-to-toddler life cycles of 3 children), versatile (resided in 3 different rooms in 3 different cities: Charlotte (master bedroom) Atlanta (living room) and Cleveland (family room)), and ultimately gave us a nice long run.  

Luckily, we were able to relocate a beige rug into this room, and with a neutral paint color and furnishings, we can easily change up the color scheme.  With minimal investment and a few new or re-purposed accessories, it should (hopefully) come together very easily without breaking the bank.  I have decided to go with blues and oranges/corals.  I have always loved blue rooms (specifically navy and indigo tones) as they are refreshing, soothing, and calming.  And a few splashes of orange/coral accessories will provide an energetic and fun vibe.

Some of my accessory pics thus far...

Indigo Block Print Pillow OKL

'Modern Orange' Lamp from Lamps Plus

Ikat Ottoman from OKL

Greek Key Pillow Target

Considered these from Etsy shop Sprucehome, but passed...buyer's regret?
LOVE this chair found on OKL but really prefer a pair and there is only one ; / 
I inquired about Coastal Living's recent cover photo...these amazing spindle wood chairs with Ikat upholstery, but sadly they were NOT too budget friendly...

Some additional blue and orange design inspiration pics....Love these rooms!
