My friend's house...

Thursday, February 9, 2012

New series maybe? Okay I think I just heard all of my friends do a collective gasp. Don't worry I'll ask for permission before...I promise (well, if you see me taking pictures at your house...that is me asking). Today just wanted to show you all my friend C's little blogging and chilling out spot. A good example how even with dark walls (light stripes if you look closely) with the right balance of accessories, adjoining wall colour and enough 'natural light' your space can feel bright and airy. I love the dark wall drama. Although I think we need to throw in some colour here. Maybe some yellow, blue or a splash of purple? So how many of you live with dark walls?
Oh I remember painting those walls. Good times. Benjamin Moore Willow and cloud white.
I needed to show you a close up of her lovely pillows. Homesense score. In case you're interested you can check out C's little foodie blog here. Thanks C! All images via me.

This is the direction I am going in with my dining room (in terms of dark walls) and I have dark wood furniture but I plan to lighten the walls up. The monochromatic color scheme is calming but yes, a pop of color would take it to another level. Thanks for sharing! Hot yoga sounds like bikram yoga..I have not tackled that yet but am a huge fan of yoga in general. said... [Reply to comment]

How about a little lavender?

Nice space! But, you know me, I also think a tiny splash of colour would be amazing.

Love the moody grey. It really gives the room a relaxed and cocoon-y vibe (is cocoon-y a word?!) And I love your suggestion of injecting some colour: totally on board with yellow!

Ooh its lovely!! I love all the grey, but you're right, some purple or yellow (or both!) would look fab!

I sense some redecorating in the near future! Now I'm thinking some new art or a throw in yellow. Thanks for featuring my home!!!
