Here we go... post number one. Honestly, I'm not really sure how to get started so I'm just going to jump in. I'm getting married on 1.1.11! My finance' and I both currently live in apartments that the other can't move into so we are also working on a new place to live. Therefore, wedding plans and house plans consume most of my thoughts... it's REALLY fun and I love it!
This is just kinda an introductory/where I'm coming from post, but below is a link to a cool design element I found recently. I love a pop of color... especially green. I probably won't do the first pic in my house, (because the elements I already have to work with wouldn't coordinate well) but I love the simplicity of the tone on tone whites with the bright door. There room feels serene and fresh, awesome.
The next few pictures are pretty cool, too. I like the second one because I think ceilings get forgotten a lot. You don't have to paint it bright green, but let's at least put some thought into it. If plain white works best in your space great, let's jut make sure it does just that... works in the space. Putting some thought into the ceiling can really add some unexpected and nice depth to a space. (I should do some research on ceilings... future ceiling post coming.)
While I'm not crazy about the third picture, I LOVE the fourth one! I love the exposed brick and the dark beams. Worn elements make me happy. I think I'd do a few less colors and pop some chrome accessories in the space. The space looks lived in and inviting yet high style, I love it.
Well here's the link:
What do you think? I hope you enjoy!
