How to Choose Paint Colors That Go Together

How to Choose Paint Colors That Go Together

The biggest question I get from my clients is where to even start. They have scoured Pinterest and know what they kind of like- but there are so. many. Pins! They don’t know where to even start to pull it all together.

Start with one thing you LOVE, this can be a piece of Art, a pillow, a piece of furniture, a rug. Chances are, you have come across SOMETHING that you just totally love but you don’t know how it will work in the room so you just stare at it- longingly- hoping it will just work in the room with all the other stuff you find in your endless shopping. Praying, it will all come together somehow.

Below you will find a few color palette ideas to get you started. I’ve also included 1 element that you can order now to start your project!

How to Choose the Right Size Rug

What is the right size rug for your living room?

So many times I walk into a house and I don’t want to pick out decorating issues but I can’t help it! The first thing I generally notice (aside from curtains being hung at the wrong height) is if the rug is too small for the room. It typically isn’t too large for the room, I usually see a rug that’s just too puny for the space!

Below you will find a couple examples on what to do in a SQUARE room and a long vertical space along with indicators on how to fill out the space best.

 YOU REALLY DON'T NEED A COFFEE TABLE IN YOUR LIVING ROOM!

REAL LIFE: Why You DON'T Need a Coffee Table in Your Living Room!

My Kid Friendly Living Room Doesn’t Have A Coffee Table- (And I totally don’t miss it!)

As I have been putting together my new house one layer at a time- I have gone back and forth on weather or not I actually need a coffee table, and you know what, I totally don’t! We have an active 2 year old, an 85lb Black Lab/ Rottweiler / Pit bull Mix and 2 crazy cats- so function is way more important for our lifestyle.

As I work thru my punch list of decor that I want to add to my new house, I am finally seeing everything come to light. We have painted almost every room on the first floor, I have purchased a rug, new wall decor and a couple of rugs- everything is finally come into place. But the one thing that I had always gone back and forth on was if I wanted to add an ottoman on casters to move around the room or a hard top coffee table. Truth be told, we f*cking LIVE in our living room. We eat here, we work here, we relax here so moving a hard top coffee table any time we want to jam out to some Baby Shark, build a pillow fort or drag out a Gazillion toys to play with at once, just isn’t realistic!

So I’m substituting! We have nesting tables in the corner with a lamp on it, I pull out the bottom one to use as a TV tray- and I have a C shape side table that tucks under the sectional- This one I leave out because I can easily move it around or tuck it under the sofa if we are using the floor space.
