Check out the beautiful products and giveaway going on at the DIY Club:
It works so well and I love it – especially with the round Rockler lazy Susan spice wheels/spice loft to the right.
Good morning! There have been some questions regarding the details of the room Cassity and I designed. Then we’ll move on to the regularly scheduled DIY posts.
These are the final professional shots of the beach themed room:
Handscraped Maple Hardwood (Style: Rockbridge/Color: Dusk)and Ikat panel (Multi) by Shaw Floors HGTV Home collection. The rug is listed as contemporary and even has a traditional feel to the design. We loved the pattern for our cottage room. As Lisa LaPorta agreed, an area rug is a great starting point for inspiration in your home.
COPEN BLUE by Sherwin Williams for HGTV Home.
SW0068 Copen Blue
We loved the detail of this chandelier when we found it and felt it added a touch of whimsy to the other red coral accents in the room. This chandelier was originally white. Painting it antique red was a fun way to add color to the room.
SW7587 Antique Red
We were limited by what was in the warehouse but chose a neutral color and clean lines. We both agree that furniture is a big purchase and should be neutral enough for when redesigning or changing accents in the future. Keeping big pieces neutral ensures many years of use and your money’s worth!
Place art on the floor to create the layout you’d like to show off on the wall. Find tips on how to hang art for a photo gallery HERE. Look for art with a theme. Add a plate, wooden letters or mirrors for interest.
DIY version using convex mirrors and pie tins:
I have this accent table in my barn patio area:
Crate with an old vintage window top…
or use an old barrel as a side table like we did in our sitting room:
We hung two large vertical prints on the left side of the window to balance the art on the right.
Hang drapery as high as possible to add height to a room. Expand rods past the window and “frame” window with drapery to allow the maximum amount of light into the room.
