I am currently obsessed with this Parma Grey color, it has that icy blue dash of warmth mixed with grey and goes with every single wood color in a dining room!


Host Chair or no Host chair?


It is such a simple and easy way to add drama, if you have a dining room set that you love, why  not add two dramatic fabric chairs to your set and BOOM – it looks brand NEW!

Olivia Pope’s Scandal Living Room

TGIT!!! Scandal is back! Which means I’m currently freaking out with excitement!!

When thinking about WHERE IS OLIVIA POPE, I started to think about how much I love her apartment and how could Bella B Home find similar pieces; but with a Bella B Home Twist!!





Let’s take this section by section.

First and most importantly, let’s pick the PAINT! Benjamin Moore has a beautiful color Misted Green, that is very similar to Olivia’s apartment. I would add a twist and make one wall a dash darker to give the space a little dimension. Carolina Gull is the perfect accent to Misted Green! It is just a DASH deeper but works like a charm!

Carolina Gull:


Like Olivia’s apartment, we would want to stay classic to the “Washington, D.C” theme but dress it up a tad!

For the one side of the apartment they have placed great tufted armed chairs.

Olivia’s Apartment:


Bella B Home would suggest Lee Industry chairs with a dash of presidential navy at the bottom! We are LOVING these chairs, paired with a sleek and sophisticated dusted gold side table by Interlude home! Let’s not forget to add in a fun abstract painting from Ballard Designs. This painting pulls in all of our colors to help bring this seating nook to life!

Bella B Home:




Next let’s look at the Sofa and Chairs!

Olivia’s Apartment:


We love the seating arrangement, its different yet SOOOO Olivia Pope!

We are OBSESSED with this Vanguard Sofa! It is so similar to Olivia’s, yet it very current with the trends that are out there now! We paired it with three great chairs from Bernhardt! Two wing like chairs with a dash of studding to add a twist and a delicious teal chair with a pillow to die for!

Bella B Home:





For the Coffee Table we decided to go a little more rustic to pick up with the legs in the seating area!


We are pairing this with a more subtle rug and fabulous mixed side tables!




Lamps…we are loving these!!

Mixing the shades but still keeping with the color theme!


For the TV Unit we wanted to go with a strong blackish-brown media unit from Restoration Hardware to tie into the tall shelving unit from Ballard Designs!



For the console table and art work we are LOVING this unit!

It is the same as Olivia’s, there can be no other one!

Olivia’s Apartment:


Bella B Home:


Paired with this beautiful painting from Ballard Designs…YES, PLEASE!!


To finish the room, you need the perfect window treatments! We would stick with the cornice flat boxed treatments along with this luscious fabric to pull the entire room together!

Bella B Home:


Add in this gorgeous sconce and your room is complete!!


Rich, Traditional, Warm and VERY OLIVIA POPE!

But let’s not forget the wine….

Our PICK of the WEEK for a delish Scandal WINE!

Spellbound Petite Sirah!


Now tell us your thoughts!!

It’s Handled…..

Bella B Home!
