Greenfield Project- Living Room

And next up at the greenfield project we have the living room.  The paint in this home was a dark tan and we needed to lighten that up with something slightly cooler.  The color is Edgecomb Gray by Benjamin Moore.  She wanted pops of bright color so we added that into the mix as well.  After photo by Terah Lake Photography.

White to Bright

I have been thinking a lot about having a room with a colorful vs. neutral palette.  I love a neutral palette, but as I look at my instagram feed (@sallyjenseninteriors) I can’t help but notice my use of color.  I have pondered, is it because I love color, or is it because my clients prefer a colorful space.  With the topic fresh on my mind, this challenge could not have come at a more perfect time.

The amazing vintage sales site, Chairish, challenged me (and some other great bloggers) to use one of their current vintage rugs and take a space from white to bright.

First let’s talk about Chairish,  if you don’t know what it is yet, listen up, it is the best site out there for buying and selling great vintage finds.  You can search by location, send in offers for most items, and most importantly find awesome designer, vintage or one of a kind items.  The site is organized and user friendly.  I highly recommend it (and I am not saying this because I have to, this is purely an independent review).

Back to my design…I started with this rug…It is warm and inviting with a fun kilim pattern.  To view a ton of other great vintage rugs from Chairish, visit here.

I knew I wanted to brighten up the space by pulling in brighter tones from the rug ( yellows, red, oranges).  Then the search began for art, pillows, and furniture that would give me a bright, yet warm space.  And here she is….sources below.

House Tour- Nursery

This room has transformed into a boys nursery since these pictures were taken.  I left the wallpaper and worked around that, so in a future post I will compare the two.  I love that I will always have these pictures from when my youngest daughter, Mabel had this room.  I have always liked having an extra twin bed in my nursery even though aesthetically it isn’t my favorite.  Eventually the crib will go and it will become a big kid room:(
