I’m craving order. Maybe it’s because my house is in total disarray after a weekend of skiing – seems like winter clothing has taken over the hall. More on that later. So I’m forcing myself to stick to a schedule when it comes to this blog, in an attempt to feel a little calm in my currently slightly chaotic housekeeping!
Decorating Mondays: Check in every week for great products, great paint colours and tips for making your home all around more beautiful.
DIY Wednesdays: Cute and easy projects and crafts. I love those!
Reader Fridays: Super excited about these! Send me your decorating questions by Wednesday, with a photo, at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will pick one question and answer it on Fridays, with suggestions on how to make it better. And don’t be shy, I’m like a doctor, I’ve seen it all and hold no judgement!
So to start off decorating Mondays, here are some great paint colours from Pittsburgh paints:
Traditionally, I would have suggested painting a room that delicious latte brown – it looks so cozy with leather furniture, and the colour is amazing with creams, browns and blues. It instantly makes you feel like you’re in a coffee house enjoying a latte and reading The New York Times (even if Dora is blaring in the background). But take a look at the promo shot they sent over:
I love the way they painted the walls with that deep teal. Totally unexpected, but feels warm and comfortable. And I feel like it would be easy to update this for spring: remove the antique Persian rugs, layer on some sisal, add lots of linen pillows and some hits of yellow here and there. Oh, and maybe tidy up those shelves! A huge jar of watermelon coloured tulips would be divine. What do you think? Too edgy? I kind of love the messy chaos of this room, but what do you think?
