Umm can we discuss how amazing this house is? Now it's actually no shocker that it's this insane considering it belongs to the genius behind Shine by S.H.O remember my obsession with this? But wow, I really love this home and all of the fab turquoise accents!
Kinda cute how the whole house matches! Wonder what her favorite colors are?! lol
Mixing Patters can be a little bit of a faux pas for some. I personally love it when its done right. Since I believe there are truly no rules in decorating I say If you love it go for it! If you are worried about the look appearing too busy it's always best to have lots of solid surfaces near.
The image below has tons of patterns going on but since it has the solid sofa, walls and chairs it doesn't feel too overwhelming. Can you image wallpaper in this room? I would be WAY too much..
If you love mixing patterns but feel afraid or overwhelmed by it, I'll give you a tip for my general rule that has come out good so far: Floral, Stripe, and a Geometric!
Growing up all I heard about from my Mama was how much she LOVED Victorian homes, and would love to live in one. Unfortunately, we did not live in an area where that was very possible.. But when I saw this insanely gorgeous home I decided that it's time for me and my Mama to pack up and move!
SO I took your advice and went back and got the cabinet, I can't wait to fix that baby up! Well of course when I went back I didn't leave empty handed. I've got to stop! But honestly I'm getting such good deals on stuff I know I will need (want) for our new house!
First, lets discuss these fab X benches I got from one of my favorite stores Treasures on the Coast (always FULL of gems) I'm not even going to mention the murano glass pink lamps that I saw, or the palm beach style lamp, or even the faux bamboo table. Do you self a favor and go check it out yourself!
And so fab dining chairs from Estate Warehouse, can't wait to paint and reupholster these!
Now we just need a house......... The search continues...
While it's no surprise that I am usually more of a fan of the bright white rooms, this moody den has piqued my interest. It's one of those rooms that the more you stare at it the more you find things about it you love.. How insane is that zebra tufted lovelyness, not to mention the lighting! Wow.
So this past weekend I went to my favorite spot The Estate Warehouse, and I found this little side table that I pretty much love.. However, I didn't purchase it b/c
1. We are house hunting I have no idea where it would go..
2. It was sort of narrow so not a ton of storage..
3. Because I would probably want it as a bedroom side table, and I generally like these sorts of things to match and they only had one..
4. Because it was $65 which I thought was kinda expensive for it., and the store remember these finds
Now I realize how ugly it looks in the Faux gold and red finish but here would be my inspration for it
SOOO What do you think??????? Should I go back and swoop it up becuase it could be soo cute? or let it go???
