Rooms to Love: Reinventing History

This inspiration room comes from a recent article in Country Living about a nearly 100 year old dance hall that has been converted into a stylish home. Keeping the open concept floor plan and entertainment friendly atmosphere was an important design concept that the Johnston family executed flawlessly.

By switching out the accents in the room, the overall mood of the space changes dramatically. Changing minor things, like adding new throw pillows, incorporating bright accents, and using a colorful rug, brings the whole room to life. This living room now has the personality to match the energy and vibrancy of the coming summer months.

Get The Look: Comfy Cottage Bedroom

This comfy cottage bedroom is the perfect place to relax at the end of the day. One of the best things about this cottage bedroom is all the different textures that work together – wicker, wood, fabric – they are all here. The fabric prints are warm and inviting, while the lamps add a little bit of contemporary cottage style. Don’t forget about the artwork on the wall – it’s just the right bit of detail that helps to tie the room together!

Color Board: Mum’s Stripe

Fresh and fun, the Mum’s Stripe Woven Cotton Rug expertly mixes yellow, dark pink, soft orange, and even purple in it’s stripes. Choosing this colorful rug as a focal point in your living and family room is not meant for the faint at heart. We paired it with a yellow leather, a patterned fabric pulling in all colors, a nautical blue, and a little extra pattern in tangerine. These colors highlight the liveliness of the rug and will captivate your family and friends.

Color Board: Soft Neutrals

The soft neutrals of this cottage kitchen colors combination never gets old because there are so many hues to explore. This combination is soft and quiet, bringing light and happiness into this stunning kitchen. Though the wall color and upper cabinets are both white, they are in different hues to create contrast: the walls are a warmer creamy white, whereas the cabinets have more of a gray undertone. This is a renovation done by designer Sarah Richardson, who brought a modern appeal to an old country farmhouse.
