Midcentury Modern Living Room Design

After helping her create a complete color palette for the interior of her home, my online client wanted me to cast a vision via e-design for the living room she hopes to make out of the original dining room.  A lover of mid-century modern design, she wanted to use greens and blues to create a fun and funky, Madmen-worthy living room of her dreams!

Home Staging Advice from 10 Experts

When the design board website, Olioboard, asked me to participate in a bloghop with nine other home staging experts, I said heck yeah!  As a Nashville-based home stager, I’m ALL ABOUT befores-and-afters (in case you haven’t noticed).  I pulled an actual “before” photo of a vacant room that I staged a few years ago.  At the time I actually staged it, I had to rent a houseful of furnishings.  I was limited to what was available from this particular rental company, but I’m not limited as to how I can stage it virtually on Olioboard!  It’s such a great tool to use with clients when trying to visualize a design plan.  So here’s a shot of the “before” of this neutral living room.

All I Want for Christmas is Design Camp!

I’m not one to enter contests, truly.  But this caught my attention for a couple of reasons.  First, it’s sponsored by two of my favorites:  designer Tobi Fairley and Benjamin Moore Paints.  Second, it’s about 2013 Color Trends which I have blogged about more than a couple of times this fall.

The Decorologist’s Contest Entry

 

The contest required creating a Mood Board that showcases your conception of 2013 Color Trends in a room design. My paint color choices included Benjamin Moore’s Prescott Green (on the walls) and Weston Flax (on the ceiling).   Did I mention the prize?  A few days at CAMP!

Well, not really THAT kind of camp.  DESIGN CAMP!!!  Tobi Fairley holds weekend design camps several times a year in Little Rock, Arkansas.  If I were to be voted one of the top 4 Mood Boards in the Tobi Fairley – Benjamin Moore Color Trends 2012 contest, I would get a free ticket to her fabulous camp.
