Decorating after a move into a new home can really be a challenge. What worked in your last home, does not always work as well in your new home. This is what happened to us.
We have a big wool traditional style rug that we love and it looked great in our last home with dark wood floors. Put that same rug with lighter wood floors and it looks very different.
Determined to make it work I pulled the colors from the rug (black, ivory, red and green) and used them throughout the room. I love lots of texture and shine in a room so I also added several baskets, silver accessories, weathered pieces, burlap and linen.
Hope you will stop by my blog for the full tour, lots of pictures to share.
I recently convinced my Mom that here red brick fireplace would look great with a wash of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I used the Pure White, thinned it down with water and applied it as a
wash. It was a wonderful transformation! Even my Dad liked it when I finished and he had been skeptical! Four hours and one quart of paint = one great update :) You can see more about this project and other ASCP projects on my blog www.sewafineseam.com
