Safari Room

We have finished the Jungle themed living room! Well, for the most part, a few little details are lacking (like cable TV). But the design part is finished! It was so fun and we did it really fast. The whole room probably cost less than $200 we wanted to keep all the receipts but they got lost here and there.

So, before the room was used as a storage room and the walls were plain white. So Rach bought a light tan color for the walls and a delicious chocolate color for the trims and floorboard. 

Rach found a gently loved love-seat at Goodwill for like $80, so that 
became the focal point in the room. Above it I hung framed animal print fabric in an asymmetrical pattern. 

Some of the frames (also from Goodwill) were nicked and scratched so I glued leaves around them to give them a more jungle feel. We are still collecting frames to fill the space better.

We brought in a coffee table from another room and used her existing runner and candles to decorate it. She bought a great area rug for $16 which helps define the sitting area as well as tie in the light blue from the candles on the table.

I made ceramic tile coasters with 
scrapbook paper and epoxy so drink condensation wont run the side tables. They are a great little pop of animal print since the paper is from a Jungle Multi Pack we got from Hobby Lobby for 40% off. 

Most of the little accents were either already in her home or from Goodwill. So we really saved money there.

The area looks so warm and cozy now. There 
will be alot of seating for parties and movie nights.
