Spent the evening at my friend Anna’s house who did a fantastic job renovating her new house without the help of a designer. I was impressed!  She installed an IKEA kitchen that looks ten times more expensive. ( IKEA… a subject we’ll get to in the next post…)

With the renovation work done, she wanted some help designing the main living areas of her house.  So we got to work discussing ideas, style and preferences.   She loves light colors, white, tan, gray, in a mix of modern, country and with some hip factor.  Here are some inspiration photos and products we were looking at, which reminded me how neutrals can be incredibly nice.

    While the palette is neutral, the textures are not! I am surprised how I warm to this look (even more surprised this was done w/out help), especially since I love vibrant, warm colors.

    The zebra rug is the icing. I just bought a sheepskin rug from Bowron and plan on putting it under my coffee table. . .

    Hi Lydia,
    Thanks for your comment. The images on the blog are inspiration photos we looked at, and not pictures of Anna's home. The rooms were done by interior designers, unfortunately I don't have their names.
