Rooms To Love: Cozy Daybed

What a lovely spot for a quiet afternoon! The dusty blues and roses are beautifully blended with pale creams and yellows to create a distinctive cottage look. The iron bed frame is a classic country style, and is tailored nicely with the quilted box cover. Adding the chipped painted mantle piece above the daybed is a great way to display old frames and pictures for a vintage flair.

Inspiration Board: Painted Brights

Who wouldn’t have fun with these colors? Eccentric, bright, and lively, you wouldn’t need to look for inspiration, motivation, or energy with these colors in your home. These colors, though vibrant, could easily be used in a bedroom. Simply pair the bright painted furniture with some neutrals to bring down the tone, while still allowing all colors to live and jive together in one area. The rug, a playful piece of decor, grounds all the pieces and becomes the focal point of the room.
