They Really Tie the Room Together


'Afore.



After.

I was beyond excited when I realized that we could have a red room in our house. And then, Corey designed this huge, sun-drenched window with a window seat area. Heaven.

With this being a south facing window - I realized I could try out a few new plants. I was all wobbly-kneed with glee when I went plant shopping on Sunday. The little tiered pottery piece will eventually be filled with succulent cuttings - from the mama plants that live on our deck right now.

I've been finding myself dreaming about this room while I'm at work. Waiting to be released so I can get back to it in the evenings . . .

So beautiful! A cup of tea, a good book, and some knitting -- I wouldn't move from there ...

Yes, Ann! You nailed it. ALL of those things. Thanks for your thoughts . . .

It's incredible.
And you choose the most perfect plants for those spots.
What other colors do you have on your walls?

Thanks so much corgidogmama and missficklemedia!

MFM - We went pretty bold around the house - Red, dark green, buttery yellow, a dark blue, a delft blue and a periwinkle for our bedroom. C thinks there are too many blues - yet I am drooling over a robin's egg blue for our downstairs bathroom. It will be a tough sell - :)
