    Thanks Will. Purchased that chair years ago when I wasn’t in design and was on a huge over stuffed pottery barn kick and after a year or two I was over it, but it was pricey so I decided to get a new slipcover made to make it more “me”. I love it and due to it’s over stuffed nature it’s actually one of the best seats in the house. People fight over it. Especially my pup Moo who thinks it belongs only to him.

    Hi Jenna,

    It’s a find from Pier 1. I was able to snag the store display for only $99 and then just painted it white. It’s from a couple of years ago and I haven’t seen anything like it there in since.

    I LOVE your amazing room and the colors are sooo striking! I LOVE lots of color. My daughter lives in NYC and her apt. is very small and dark. Her colors are beautiful… magenta, beige and brown w/ white walls, but dark… hmmmm you’ve inspired me πŸ™‚ I think we need a real pop of color! πŸ™‚

    I did go a bit color happy in the living room, but I’m loving it. My mom now feels like her house is too blah and wants color overload as well. Happy to be spreading the color love.

    I love your little pink and orange ottoman in the background! I just snagged a pair of pillows in the same fabric and I’m obsessed!

    Obsessed with fabric as well. Found pillows made with it on etsy, but then couldn’t find the mill that actually made it to purchase it by the yard. After some searching I found it and I’m so happy.

    It took me a while to find the perfect yellow at a good price point, but I finally found this one: http://www.onlinefabricstore.net/outdoor-fabric/solid-outdoor-fabric/richloom-rave-daffodil-fabric-.htm

    I’ve now used it in my own home and a clients and we both love it.

    World Market did have yellow drapery panels like this in a beautiful yellow in what looked like a linen weave. They were very inexpensive ($15 a panel?)

    The yellow curtains really make the room, and add some sunshine. I just saw that exact color of yellow on some turning leaves on the way home, and was going to incorporate it into a color study tonight. Great yellow!

    I love how the spots on the pillow, the background of the painting in the back corner nod to the beautiful yellow in the curtains. Perfect tie-in! Love it.

    Love the yellow curtains!!! I have super bright yellow curtains in our dressing room and they make me happy every time I walk in there. The walls are the same color as your walls too I think? (magnolia grandiflora)

    I love the risks you take with color and pattern. They work so beautifully to create such happy spaces. Your yellow drapes and pink walls are wonderful, as is your choice of drapery hardware. Kudos to a job well done!

ON THE BLOG

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.

ready to finally love your space?

stunning style for everyday living starts here.

yes! I'm ready!
