I predicted this day would come. Back when I painted my office / living room, I told my friend Krista that I loved the turquoise color I chose for above my fireplace, but I had a feeling I would eventually tire of it. Well, it’s happened.
Goodbye, turquoise. Hello, gray.
Please don’t get me wrong. I loved the pop of color, but it just became too much for me. As I was accessorizing and furnishing the room, it seemed that it was fighting with everything I was trying to accomplish. Immediately after swapping out the bold color with a neutral gray (which is Sensible Hue from Sherwin Williams – a shade darker than the wall color, Aloof Gray.), the room felt so much calmer. Plus, it’s already allowed me to have more fun with the furnishings and accessories.
Speaking of accessories, I picked up a pair of these new poufs from Target. I’d been seeing them in lots of places and became obsessed. Not only do I love the color and pattern, but they provide a little extra seating for my space. (And apparently a new place for the cats to hang out.)
I always think it’s amazing how much a few simple changes can alter a space. What little tweaks have you made in your space that have made a big difference?
