I'm working on adding blue accents to my living room. In truth I'm a bit over all the orange, but because of money constraints (and because not one year ago did I promise my hubby I would NEVER tire of orange) I have to live with it. In order to freshen up the orange I'm adding blue.
I painted the walls blue (you can read about that here) and now I'm adding some blue accent pillows. I'm not done, but I made two pillows so far. I hope to add some more blue accent pillows soon with different fabric and textures.
This is what I did so far.
Two accent pillows of blue satin. I used a simple envelope pillow pattern and whipped these out in a couple of hours.
I'm still trying to decide where to put them, but I love how they add some light to that orange and brown look right now.
Above you can see the blue pillows with the blue walls. It is all coming together.
I have some other ideas for this room. I want to paint the book shelves white with a pattern on the background. I also want to make some more blue pillows. I found some extra pillow forms so I don't even have to buy them (yay). Maybe I will make some with a flower pattern like I have pinned on pinterest.
So what do you think? It is not that drastic a change, but I'm happy with how it looks.
My decorating changes always take a long time. I never have a really huge transformation all at once (I guess I just don't have the time for that), but I like that the changes are organic and ever flowing.
