Rooms to Die For
Artist Elena Columbo's vacation home living room is so vibrant with color! I love the crazy lacquered logs and the light blue mixed with red. Image from Blueprint Magazine
Caroline Irving, Vogue Living's style editor really has a way with pattern and color mixing so it's no surprise that she is coming out with her own ltextile collection. I love that, despite the black walls, this room is airy and bright. It just goes to show that a soothing room doesn't have be pastel or neutral. Image from Domino Magazine
My favorite thing about these two rooms is that they are easy to do on a dime. While I doubt that either of these two ladies had a shoestring budget, a lot of the furniture they have could be easily thrifted and painted to spruce it up a bit. If you can't afford gorgeously appliqued pillows ans coverlets, you could make some of your own! It might take a little time but you are creating your very own heirlooms and those are always more valuable that anything you buy at a store.
