It's easy to get excited about furniture. And it's plenty fun to explore paint colors, wall art options, and accessories. After all, those are what go into a room's design, right?
Well, yeah. That's part of it. But don't forget those other two sides of the space - the ceiling, and the floor. Of course, a room defining floor piece can often cost significantly more than that can of paint or awesome framed print. Like, a whole lot more.
Unless, of course, you take Holly's advice, and transform the whole space for a cool $50.
She says, "a white chair, with white walls and white floors doesn't work... at least not for me... if you've seen other stuff i have done in my blog you probably realize i'm not afraid of color or bold patterns... and i knew i needed a great bright color on the floor for these chairs to pop off of... so, i set out to paint a rug and make that happen... i have to say "watermelon smoothie" by glidden is my new favorite color! and how groovy does it look with views into my striped hallway and painted bedroom wall and then to my living room??? i love it!!!"
