Down Under Design

  1. I haven’t been there but I do love the way the art is displayed in the first few images!

  2. Love those deep blue walls in the first shot. I think they help balance out the pretty Madeline Weinrib rug. With white walls, that rug would really POP, but with the dark walls it flows a little bit more….

    How have I never heard of Ivy & Piper before??

    I am in love with the navy & orange combo. If my husband wouldn’t be offended by it being Auburn colors (my favorite college football team ever), I would do every room in that combo.
    Ok, probably not, but I would want to!

  14. Where can I find the fabric used in the 2nd to last photo, the one with the monkey sitting on the chair?

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
