Have An Awesome Playdate With Your Home

I'm kind of like a big kid who loves to play dress up. Not dress up in the sense of my personal style, because honestly I'm usually working at home and in yoga clothes and flip flops. The clothing wardrobe may be mundane most days, but when it comes to my home I fashion myself as a chameleon of color and a wizard of wardrobe! With a neutral background and furnishings it's easy to have a playdate with YOUR home.

elegant fall table centerpieces

I'm always chattering around here about designing with a neutral background and I practice what I preach. Benjamin Moore White Dove walls, furnishings that are pale and interesting with texture and simplistic French style lines. If you haven't yet...get out the paint brush and get to work on those walls and you'll whip up a new look in a matter of hours. Then comes the playdate...the fun part...

Finished painting the room? Are you updating to a new look or just adding in some new pieces?

Start with the larger pieces first, like your sofa and dining table. If you go with a neutrals you'll ALWAYS be able to change the look seasonally and for years and years to come! You can see my own pieces under HOME TOUR and I'm highlighting a handful of things that I've found for similar looks here today.

best white slipcovered sofa on sale

I'm at our beach home for the next week and we have a WHITE SLIPCOVERED SOFA. You can see ours HERE but I found THIS ONE and it's much less expensive and ON SALE with FREE SHIPPING. By the way...you can live with white and I'm here to tell you that we do and have dogs and people and wine and food and with white you see the dirt and can wash it!

And then there is this lamp that is ON SALE and adds the rustic yet feminine French appeal and I'm considering at this price for my beach home. 
contemporary living room with fur throw
I love EVERYTHING about the room above and it just shows how playful an area with a neutral sofa can be! That little side table I found is under $55 right now and a small piece like that is so versatile. Grab it HERE, because it's going to sell out soon I'm sure.

As I sit here a the beach place, we are chatting about our next design project to tackle, which will be updating the bathrooms. I feel that we can do this on budget and planning is first. I LOVE the MIRROR ABOVE for the powder room and am off to show it to my husband and pin it to one of my boards. Happy playing...and it's time for Home Style Saturdays! xo, Janet
