Hi friends! Thought I’d share a few snaps of my coffee table this lovely Sunday. What do you think about my new shells? They come all the way from Thailand (thank you mom and dad!) along with many others. I’ll stage a photoshoot with the rest next weekend =)

This beauty is one of my all-time favorite vignettes, and a long-time resident of my inspiration folder. It’s a simple symmetric vignette, but the simplicity is part of the beauty in my opinion. When every item is perfection, a simple vignette will only look well edited, right? Apart from the obvious (greek key console and gray zebra ottoman) it’s the wonderful color combination of the cobalt blue artwork and the apple green lamps that sucks me in. I’m going to create a few new vignettes in my home, so I surfed the interwebs trying to find a few pieces that would create the same appeal (while costing as little as possible of course). Here’s what I ended up with:
Total price: $792.
I’m totally crushing on that ocean art print! I think it will be mine ;-)
I also made two discoveries today, namely that a greek key console table like the one Ashely used in her vignette, would cost more than twice as much ($1775 to be exact) as the entire vignette I slapped together. The other thing I discovered is that it’s impossible to get a hold of an ottoman upholstered in gray zebra fabric.
Also, I wish we could refer to more than one ottoman as ottomen… Enjoy the rest of your day! xox Linda
Well hi there! I’m super excited to share this gorgeous living room today. It’s the work of Lynn Morgan, and great work it certainly is! Starting with a neutral palette of beige and white, Lynn created an oasis of lovely blues and turquoise – and all tones, tints and shades in between. To tie the fresh accent colors to the neutral background, Lynn opted for floral and leaf print fabrics, representing both color extremes.
Viewed from this angle you can see how much depth this color combination of blues and turquoise, creates. Very visually pleasing and interesting, but calm and relaxed at the same time.
Lynn’s attention to details makes all the difference. See the shelving unit with the blue painted back? Scroll back to the former photo and see how it brightens up that corner of the room.
The sunroom showcases how wonderfully well the rich blue color works as a neutral on furniture, when paired with light and bright colors. Did you notice the same blue color was used on all the side tables in the living room? I simply love it! Do you?
