I am excited to share my green and blue living room with you! Here is what my living looked like before I add these fun blue and green hues. I am loving these vibrant colors, and just a touch of pink. If you are following me on Instagram you know that this room is going to be in the upcoming Shabby Nest book authored by the talented Wendy Hyde! I am so excited to be a part of it. She is so talented!
Welcome to my living room. Come on in.
I love color. I can't help it. Whenever I try to be more subdued, it just doesn't work out. It's kinda like when my husband tells me I over-share with with people. When I try not to I just get so flustered. It's who I am. I just have to be me. Pretty colors call my name. I must answer.
You might recognize this painting from my earlier post : DIY KNOCKOFF ABSTRACT PAINTING.
This pretty little table is something I picked up at the thrift store and gave it a coat of sea glass hued paint. I also got the vodka container (yep, just incase you want lots of vodka) at the thrift store. I filled it with beachy potpourri from Pier One. The Volcano candle is from Anthopologie. And piece of wood is from Hobby Lobby.
The paint colors are Quiver Tan in the kitchen and Magnetic Gray in the living room. Both are Sherwin Williams. The throw pillows are either from Pier One or TJ Maxx.
Oh, except that green pillow on the right. I couldn't find the color green I wanted so I used a stencil to paint this pre-made pillow case from Hobby Lobby. I think it cost about $3. All you have to do is add a little fabric medium to your paint. Here's a post about HOW TO PAINT FABRIC. It's really easy!
I grabbed a fun woven throw from Target to add texture and placed some logs my my fire place, even though it's not wood-burning (but it looks good).
I like to keep fresh-cut flowers around my house as much as possible but sometimes that's just not practical. So I have a few real-looking buds strategically placed. That way I feel like I have flowers even when I don't.
I love this table. I got it for a couple hundred dollars off of an internet classified site. It's kinda my favorite. I love the classic walnut table top. So pretty.
My grandfather built this shelf many years ago. I paired it with a piece my little brother built when he was learning to build furniture. He's super good at it now. Paired together they give me the storage I need and they are sentimental too!
I like to keep fresh fruit in bowls to add color to my kitchen.
And there you have it. Excuse my while I go mess up my house. It can only stay this clean for so long...
