Day 625's fun ideas
Seeing Jenny's post this morning reminded me how much I like the work of Carrier and Company (and that I haven't posted about it yet). The Forge River house is especially interesting, and filled with fun ideas.
Grass green velvet throw pillows make this mix of blue and white so much more interesting. And I love the pair of mirrors over the sofa -- an unexpected touch that's easy to replicate (though I'm thinking that is one BIG sofa!).
Obviously intended to be a formal space, I love how it's taken down with more informal fabrics, like grain sacks on the upholstery. The curtains are left formal, a fun touch.
An oversized map can make a big statement, for not much money.
I love the coral-colored bottom on the curtains. Again, an easy, budget-friendly touch that makes a great statement.
Another great pair of mirrors, this time over a long console. Even a rustic-looking piece like this can have a place in a semi-formal house.
Love this fabulous ceiling!
Great carpet throughout the house. And I'm loving this green chest and the artwork above it. I'm thinking I could get the look with craft paper and some black paint.
And, of course, I always find a blue bedroom appealing. This one is especially fresh.
Love an interesting bathroom vanity, too!
