For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
VINCENT VAN GOGH
There is little time to recover from yesterday’s celebrations, since the holiday fell on a Wednesday. I don’t know about you guys, but I am still so full of everything patriotic that I can’t even think about cooking today.
Instead I wanted to share with you my mood board for my living room surface makeover. From floor to ceiling, our current neutral palette is blinding.
The only color to brighten things up comes from the cherry colored woodwork.
I have tried to liven things up with a pop of green in some Pottery Barn pillows, but as you can tell they are usually camouflaged by the dogs.
Though, the addition of the pillows made me realize that I do want to work around a green color scheme. For instance, I like this color option that uses hints of coral along with the green and tan.
If I take this route, I will add pops of coral throughout the room, starting with some painted furniture. My black coffee table could easily take on the new shade. Then to add some pattern, I would hunt for the perfect geometric rug.
Pulling some of the blue out of the pillows, this lime inspiration would be more of a vibrant option.
Having the bold greens and blues lead the room, I could search for the pieces that would stand out with their bright colors and upholstered patterns. In this mood board, I like all of the fabric choice and could use them in either the chairs or the ottoman.
I am excited to start my search for the perfect pieces in my green transformation. With my color options in mind, I will be looking for a geometric patterned rug , chair, or ottoman to base the room around.
What is your process for redesigning a room?
