I’m really excited to get this library done.

I’m really excited to get this library done.
I was all set to go with a soothing green library and loved this green, orange and pink scheme below.
Then…
…I changed my mind.
From the library window you look out at these beautiful hibiscus flowers by the pool.
That shrill red and light blue retro color scheme idea would just not go away.

The color of the red hibiscus is irresistible.
The color I normally hate.

I matched it up with actual paint colors.
Between looking at the hibiscus and the graphic wall paper in my bathroom last night, I decided I needed to give red a try.
The vibe feels more interesting and right for the house.
If I hate it – we’ll just have to repaint.

RED & BLUE DESIGN PLAN

I want lots of natural woods.

Loads of wood animal accessories.

Mid century items.
Bold yellow bed sofa.
Tweed and hounds-tooth fabric.
Faux fur.

Here are some of the fabrics and textures I’m considering.
Not the typical eye candy just a certain vibe.
I’m also considering the possibility of a stronger carpet.

I want it to be a 50’s retro but modern library.

The sofa will be a convertible bed for guests.
For the bedding I’ll be able to break in my new Victory bedding.

Or the Fern & Lemon Takes Two bed set.

Black Victory Euro sham, Fern and Lemon Takes Two Euro shams, Hot Pink and Orange Takes Two Euro sham.
Tomorrow they are coming to paint.
