This Is It


After years of going back and forth on colors to use in my living and dining room area, I have decided on brown/olive brown as my color scheme.  I love this dining room in the June issue of Architectural Digest.

Many years ago the builders accidentally laid brown carpet in my family room instead of the sand color ordered.  Unfortunately, it was after they replaced it that I realized how much I liked the color.

I have always kept tear sheets and magazines, and I noticed that brown was the dominant color saved.  I will use brown and lavender in my bedroom.  So...wish me luck.

I wish I could find the photo that turned on the light in my stubborn brain, but I found these rooms designed by Kelley Proxmire via My Knotting Hill blog.

 Domino via Little Green Notebook blog.

I love the fabric used to cover the chairs above.

See you soon,
