5 Ways to Get This Look: Spring Living Room

I spotted this lovely living room at House of Turquoise, and it just seemed to embody the fresh, airy feeling of Spring.  The living room that caught my eye looks so light and cool with it’s combination of washed out sun yellow and sky blue.  I definitely love the custom woodwork (that window seat!) and the eclectic blend of furnishings.  I’m happy to say that if you want a room like this, you can have it!  I’ve collected tutorials for projects that can help you copy some of the fun design elements of this room and put them in your own house.  Enjoy!

State Pride Tour: Indiana

Welcome to State Pride Week. This week I have partnered with 30 bloggers to showcase a project, craft or recipe to showcase our home state.  I currently live smack dab in the middle of the USA in Indiana.  I took advantage of my states initials and created an “IN love” silk screen that I can use over and over again.  I chose to make some pillows and a canvas out of my “IN love” silk screen.
