It all started with the quilt!
It was the inspiration piece for the room and we went from there.
In my next post I will share with you all of the details.
But isn't this such a lovely relaxing space.

I talked about this a little last week but wanted to post a few more examples here.
Notice the blue fabric on the coffee table, the blue pillow, the BLUE pot on the shelf, and the picture above the fireplace.
Then notice the robin's egg blue throughout the room.
The light blue pillows, the blue pot on the table and the blue fabric on the bottom of the drapes, really pulls this room together.
I am joining with Julia today for Hooked on Fridays.

We took this Living Room and rearranged with items
she had in her house already ---
So fun to see what can be done in a couple of hours!
We took out the big chair and one of the end tables.
The room really needed something interesting to look at,
so we found the bookcase upstairs and filled it with some nice accessories.
It became a great focal point.
Amazing what you can accomplish with out spending any money!

So we added touchs of blue throughout the room.
(The maroon color is pulled from the rug)
The couch is very inviting!
There is a little blue in the middle pillow on the couch.
The area rug really helps to take your eye away
from the teal carpet.
And it pulls in the gold and maroon colors together.
This mirror was from the 70's and at one time was hanging above a brick covered fireplace. (can't you just imagine it!)
We turned it vertical and placed it in the entry with a table,
and it has a whole new feel.
The gold frame with the ornate pattern has a similar
feel to the other gold pieces in the room.
Do you see how we are placing these similar patterns and colors throughout the space.
It works well to position them in somewhat of a triangle.
Now, notice how the color and pattern is placed in YOUR space and see if you can tie it together.
Your room will be more COZY!

The shelf by itself was not quite big enough.
So we added the ornamental iron on each side. It created just the right balance for the space.
Notice the group of three on the shelf, and the natural elements (flowers and greenery)
The lace added a fabric element to the shelf and the ornamental iron mimics the lace feel.
The homeowner was so happy because she now has such a nice focal point in the kitchen and it has items that she loves!
