As many of you know I am currently in the process of moving into a new home 13 hours away. For over 5 months I had been looking forward to purchasing a new home so that I could decorate it. What excites me most is decorating my living room area. Ideally I would like to just go out and buy all new things, couches, coffee tables, end tables, ottomans, pictures etc…but since that’s obviously not going to happen I am going to resort to A LOT of DIY projects.
Here is a picture of a living room I am in love with.

I really want a bright happy living room, so I'm tossing up a few colour combinations.
The first being tourquois, lime, and pink (as above)
or all the colours above along with yellow and tangarine.
I love the floral print in the picture below (along with the colours)...I really wish I could find some fabric like this to cover a chair with.

One thing I really want to do is re-cover our couches...so I'm thinking I'll just make some slip-covers that fit on perfectly (un-like purchased ones). I just found a picture of a couch here that is kind of the idea I'm working on for my couches. I love the idea of mixing prints...this couch is a little out-dated for my taste...basucally I want a more modern print...something fun and bright, but I want to mix prints as I go.
Do you guys have any DIY ideas I could try? Or any other thoughts?
