Denim blue couches, you might think: will is go with my decorating style? Will it look too country? Shouldn't I just get a beige couch?
Think about how you dress. If your wear jeans a blue couch suits you (and if you don't wear jeans a blue couch is still a good pick).
Why do people wear jeans? Because they go with everything, just like a blue couch would.
A blue couch is a good way to have a couch that is a color, yet not so much of a color. In other words a blue couch is like moving away from regular, expected beige but not being too risky with a bold color.
When mixing lots of different collections it is important to have something that carries through your personal collection. Here (in the one I designed, above) pastels are used, mainly pink pastels with a hint of purple and blue, white is used as a "grounding" tone.
1. I love little cute painted teacups, plates, and bowls but I could not figure out how I would use them... until I saw this.
2. Decorating a small space can be a challenge. Some great tips from this article: light colored walls, lighting that shines at the ceiling and at the floor, a low-back sofa, subtle stripes, add a mirror and more!
3. Spring cleaning fever? Try to accomplish these tasks and your home will be sparkling.
Enjoy this spring weekend! (the cleaning can wait).
There are lots of lists of things that people think are "must have" items for every home. But those lists usually don't suit a lot of lifestyles. However MSN has a "Checklist for What Every House Needs" and I think it is a good one. Ina Garten gives a list of kitchen essentials. There is also a great list of desktop essentials and first aid kit essentials.
I love the white walls and how the light shimmers from all those windows. The red-ish wood door adds a little warmth to the cool neutrals. The denim blue couch adds a pop of color and picks up the blue stripe in the chair.
The glass tiles and the silver finishes carry the shimmer into the bathroom. The decorating elements in this home are very classic and simple.
I wouldn't mind staying here. Check out more pictures and the listing here and why not book a vacation while you're there?
3. Paint colors are always hard to choose because there are so many options. Designers over at HGTV gave bedroom paint color ideas. I love light blue bedroom walls and neutral toned bedroom walls, which most of the given paint colors are. I am thinking Young Colt (pictured below; suggested by Amy Matthews) would be a good pick for a boy's room.
