So my sister Katherine has this gorgeous Shabby Chic home down in South Louisiana. Soft creams in her slipcovered sofas, layered with warm golds and bits of rust. Loves her house, and her furniture – just needs a refresh (read: energy….. somebody please give me energy…..) She’s got two busy young boys, a great career, and a husband. So we’ve explored different ways to layer the “energy” in on top of what she has, and here we share some of our ideas:
For the vintage piece collector: Love the corals pulling off this vintage quilt.
For the Shaker fan: Chartreus green balanced with soft blues.
For the adventurous: A turquoise wall.
For the playfully sophisticated: Punch in the turquoise with those soft golds.
For those who need energy and relaxation: Punch in with just vibrant enough blue-greens.
