This is the time of year when I’m ready for everyday decorating. The holidays that I love to celebrate have come and gone. In addition the influence of seasonal changes are leveling out. Now I can take a moment to breathe deeply and enjoy a relaxing space.
Over the years I’ve concentrated on creating a living space that’s comfortable with a variety of seating options. Of course the leather sofa gets a daily workout from everyone including the dogs. This is where we pile up to watch TV. The chairs across from the sofa round out the conversation area and provide a place to plop down with a laptop or a good book.
As far as decorating goes, I’ve pulled together my favorite colors of blue, white and brown in various shades. I never worry too much about matching colors. I figure if it’s a shade of blue that I like, then it will blend in with the rest.
The arm-chair and ottoman are the only pieces of furniture with a print, the other patterns on pillows and throws are mixed in the room for interest. In my home stripes and checks seem to go with everything.
Of course I love flowers for everyday decorating but thriving fresh plants make me happy too. Plants really do liven up a room don’t they?!
Ferns have interesting foliage and are fun to incorporate into the decor. See how your eye automatically goes to that pop of green in the room.
I have a variety of small galvanized buckets that are very handy for plants. I use them to hold cloth napkins, flatware, flowers and a variety of other things in the kitchen, laundry room and studio.
