I mentioned yesterday that I’m working with a friend on redecorating her house, and I am so excited for this project! I went over last week and we worked on picking out paint colors for the downstairs rooms. She loves cool colors, like blue and gray, but she also isn’t afraid to have some fun and go bold. After talking things through, here’s what we came up with for her living room:
A medium gray (sea haze) for the living room walls, a bright blue (electric blue) for the accent wall around the fireplace, and a coral (summer sun pink) for decorative accents (all paint colors are Benjamin Moore).
My friend and her husband already bought a charcoal gray couch and loveseat and they’d like a black leather ottoman for the coffee table (something soft that their little girls won’t hurt themselves on), so I used those in my room design. I added a gray and white rug, some fun throw pillows, curtains, and some patterned stools for extra seating that won’t block the fireplace.

My friend doesn’t have a large decorating budget so we’re shopping at inexpensive stores like Target and Ikea for most of the items. By the way, Target is having a fantastic sale on a lot of their furniture and home décor right now, if you’re in need of any new items for your home you should check it out!
