I've been following your blog for a few months now and love it. Your new layout looks great!! I am so excited for your help!! For years I've been using a brown/green color scheme with red highlights. I'm ready for a change. I would like to add in a dusty blue and switch the red for a coral color.
I am a DIY-er on a strict budget. I am willing to paint frames, the mirror metal, recover, and whatever else I can do myself. I just inherited the orange chair and I like it, but am not attached. However, it is probably last on my re-do list. I want to recover the green chair and wondered what you thought about my fabric selection (taped onto the bottom of the painting). I love my painting and wanted the chair to match. I am also having a hard time picking a fabric for curtains, and can't decide how to hang them with the double windows. Should they go from the top of the top window all the way to the bottom?
I know you've said all the curtains visible should be the same fabric and my stair windows are fully visible from the rooms on each story. The color palettes do flow, but do I have to have the same curtains on both stories, so the stairs will match? Although the current paint colors go fairly well with my current color palette, they came with the house, and I'm ready for a change. While I know paint is last, I've been thinking about a light dusty blue from the painting. And lastly, with a step right in the middle of the room, what do I do with my furniture arrangement, and if I were to get them, rugs?
Lyndsey, Lyndsey, Lyndsey,
Where to begin? First of all, Your floating wall decor is so distracting, I can't even focus on anything else. Pull it down. Like today.
Look at this post.
And this post.
And for sure look at this post. they will teach you what to do.
You say you want to add in a dusty blue and switch the red for coral. Your fabric and art has no coral.
When I read that, I think of this Tobi Fairley look:
If you want blue and coral, do blue and coral, but when you try to do blue and coral and yellow and brown and beige and green, you are simply too all over the place. Decide what you want and show some commitment to your pallet. Is blue and coral what you want- or is your pallet in your painting what you want? Don't try to do both.
And on your curtains, yes- go from the top all the way down. Have them end exactly on the floor, not half an inch above, and not puddled.
Why is my font two different colors and why can't I figure out how to fix it? You would think, that now that I'm 40, I could figure this out....
Have a great day Lyndsey, I hope I wasn't too hard on you. I really am trying to help!
