I'm back today with another design feature. Today, I'm introducing you to Alexandra, wife and mom to two boys. Alexandra has a living room that she wanted to add some fun color to liven up the space. A little more from Alexandra:
I love the earthy tones but I think the space need a little color.
I think that I need something with color, definitively something in the walls and more pillows (because we never have enough pillows, right ;)) maybe some accent tables and lamps.
I think purple is the color this year and I would like experiment with, orange and yellow too.
I thought Alexandra already had a great start to her space. I love the taupe chairs and thought some bright purples and yellows would really help to bring some life to her space...and how fun to work with that color palette, right??
Again, I applaud Alexandra for wanting to add some vibrant color into her room...especially living with a bunch of boys. It was really fun to add some pops of color in the accent pieces, like the pillows, lamp, artwork and basket. With some of the heavier pieces in the room, like the piano, we opted to swap out the dark coffee table for this gold and glass version. I also love the idea of adding a mirror and wood lamp to compliment the rocking chair that already exists in the room.
The fun part about this project is that Alexandra can start keeping an eye out for some of these pieces when she's out at Home Goods or TJ Maxx. She definitely doesn't have to break the budget in order to infuse more color into her room. Most of the rest of these pieces are from Target...super stylish, but still practical!
Thanks again for all the inquiries...the list has started to add up, but please know I am reading your emails and will respond soon!
