Relaxing Earth Tones Living Room Design Board

I can honestly say, I adore my job!  Number one, to be able to help someone transform a space in their home that allows them to really have a unique place all their own, is so much fun!  Another reason I love it, is that I get to express my creative side, which is constantly screaming at me to do something ;-)  So it is a win win for me!

This week I am working with a new client that loves reds and blues and wants to tastefully incorporate that into a sort of French Country Cottage feel.  So, I am working on that as I also finish up a design board that is inspired by Earth Tones that I want to show you.

Today's online design board that I am sharing with you is for a wonderful couple with two young children.  They have a living/family room that they are working on transforming into a more formal feeling space.  The existing space is done in greens and browns and the clients want to keep the existing color scheme.   Since the walls already have all the color the room needs, I wanted to keep the palette very light and airy and bring in a little of the wall colors to help soften the space.   I decided to bring in a more neutral beige shade and also a deep blue to add some depth of color.  One handy dandy tip is that if your walls are full of color, then always bring in lighter furniture decor and visa versa, if your walls are light, then add a punch of color with darker furniture.  It is always a nice contrast!

Here is the design board that I created...
