When we moved into our house , I loved the soft green color of the walls in the family room, and the fact that the previous owner had installed plantation shutters on all of the windows. I decided to take these two elements of the room and create a sort of cottage/coastal feel. My friend suggested I hire a decorator for some ideas, so I did. In just one hour of consultation I'd decided a direction for my room and got some great advice. The number one thing she told me was to pick an accent color for the room. I had a picture from Coastal Living that had bright oranges, browns, cream and blues, so I decided to pick orange as my accent color. I painted my previously boring brown Pottery Barn coffee table a bright Adobe Orange and picked out fabrics and accent accessories that carried the color throughout the room. Next step for this room is hardwood floors - I can't wait! If you're looking to update a room in your house, just pick a color and go for it!
My blog is all about how I juggle life, work, family and still get a little time to express my creativity and decorate my house. Here, I celebrate the south, my love of photography, the Tarheels and my Christian faith.
