Do you remember that black and white striped rug in the kitchen
and how we talked about how just one thing can change the look and feel of a space?
Or when my blue and white obsession on the mantel
picked up steam a few months ago?
It was around the same time that I was playing with color
and taking a little walk on the wild side.
Normally, I am a pretty subdued girl when it comes to something bold in a room.
It might be just flowers, or an accent or something along those lines.
But I decided to have a little fun and try something different
and a little more bold
with a little more pizazz than my usual.
I mean, why not?
I was working on styling the patio for a special event with Joss & Main and
the new pillows went perfectly with the blue and white on the mantel.
And those brighter pieces led to trying something completely different.
Something with a pop of color
and definite wow factor.
It was so much fun to play and try a different look- and while I was playing- I was amazed at how different the patio felt- so I decided to snap a few photos of each look to share with you.
I kept all the accessories the same right down to the flowers on the mantel.
But I changed one thing.
Can that truly change the look of a space?
I only changed the rug.
Here is a soft, sandy, subdued and subtle look with this neutral rug.
Always a classic, always in fashion,
always easy to accessorize with different colors.
It was easy going and easy to live with- no color commitment other than the pillows.
I liked it- but I really wanted something different.
And then there is this.
A colorful, bold and beautiful blue underfoot.
Ooh la la...
I loved the vibrant look it brought
and it definitely took the patio to a different level of charm.
Even with everything else staying the same- it felt like a different space.
So what do you think?
Which one is your favorite look?
Are you a soft and subtle or a bold and beautiful?
I like them both for different reasons.
Happy Tuesday everyone!!
