Color Game : Blank Slate

posted on

Let's say someone gave you this perfect little cottage in the perfect little beach town.  All you have to do is decorate on your unlimited budget.  What would you do with a such a blank slate?  For me, the house would be creamy Venetian plastered walls, clean white kitchen and bath, crisp white linens & dishes and cool wood floors.  Let's "shop" Pinterest and see how we could fill the rooms.

The living room filled with easy washable cotton slipcovered upholstery.  Even a small dose of green stands out.  How I wish I'd kept my old oak dining table as doesn't this one look terrific cut down to cocktail table height?

The perfect cottage guest room with a yummy sheepskin rug.

The guest bathroom - I would spray paint that basket a dark brown.

A workplace for all things imagined.  That floral print curtain must billow in the breeze.

At the back of the house, a perfect daybed within earshot of the ocean rolling in. Just right for a catnap and a dream about what you'd do with your blank slate.

  • Thanks! I’m working on the discipline it might take to edit to just a couple of colors. It’s soothing to be sure!
