One Room Challenge Week 1 : Great Room

Happy Saturday, all! I'm Christine, and for once my timing is perfect, (we were late in getting the keys to our house), to join in the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda @ Calling it Home and 20 other designers getting together to redecorate, (or in my case, start to decorate) one room, over a six week span. I'll be posting here for the next six Saturdays.  Since the first room as you walk in the door is the Great Room, I thought that looked like a good way to start!
The paint color in the photos is much lighter in person. There is plenty of natural light. Eventually we will be replacing the carpet with hardwood, just not this year.
I couldn't decide which room to put this clock, since I have a Coastal theme in mind for the Great Room, this clock is going either in the Family room upstairs or the Living room.

This area could be the formal dining area. Again more natural lighting, in the Kitchen behind the wall.
And the upstairs. Lots of space for Gallery Walls!
What I have is not much, since when we moved last year I sold or gave away most of it. I have a light greyish leather couch, some aqua/ coastal pillows, my new accent table, and some fun family photos.
Here is the pillow I have, and My New Accent table:
The accent table I painted in Valspar's ' La Fonda Mirage'
I picked my pillow up at a Thrift store, as well as the throw.  The oak chairs are my Nana's, and they could be going in with her dining room set in the formal dining area, or the kitchen dining area, I haven't decided yet. The knobs I bought at Home Depot.
(affiliate) You can buy the same pillow here.
Here are a couple Inspiration photos I found.
The list of things, I am really needing are a coffee table, and a rug, for right now. More to come, soon. Thank you for visiting and helping to cheer me on. Looking forward to seeing everyone's progress and inspiration!
