I hope you all had a fun filled holiday. We ended up seeing a movie and going out to dinner.
We needed to stay indoors and beat this humid heat. I think I'm ready for cooler temps already.
I'm still on my quest to "lighten and brighten" our home decor room by room.
I have been thinking about adding another color as an accent to our family room and have
decided on aqua blue. It should go well with the existing ivory walls, leather and moss green.
After finding this pillow at Marshalls as my inspiration I'm ready to do more shopping soon.
I'll share the process as I find the look I'm after. Finally after six years I will change the mantle.
It's hard to believe but it really has been that long with the exact same picture and stuff on it.
Join me to see my starting point and some inspiration from Pinterest!
I'm starting with ivory walls, leather furniture and the moss green accents.
This pillow is my starting point. It has the aqua blue color that I'm going to add.
Does it show on your screen? It may be hard to see unless it's in person.
Light cream has slowly been working it's way in this room as well.
I bought the light cream pillars at Ross.
Here is the mantle now. I'm ready to find new art, candles etc...!
This aqua velvet stool would provide extra seeating and add a punch of color.
I'm drooling over this aqua blue and stenciled armoire.
This looks like a darker aqua/turquoise painted piece. Pretty!
Maybe a mirror in cream would also work on the mantel? Hmmm...?
Love everything about this!
I could add a tray of aqua glass to bring in the color. Easy!
How about some new lamps in aqua blue? Yes! I'm ready to shop now.
A wooden monogram could be painted aqua, tied with ribbon and hung.
I can't wait to share the before and afters with you! Inspiration can be found anywhere.
Who would have thought one little pillow would get my decorating wheels turning so much.
Have you ever bought one item that made you change a room?
Have a wonderful weekend!
