Never say never, because things will inevitably change! Change has come to StoneGable. I’m adding a new color to my beloved neutrals. Let’s cheer for BLUE! I’ve been thinking about adding a little bit of blue to the back of my home for a while now and sealed the deal this past weekend on a trip to my local Pottery Barn outlet. I’m so excited to share what I have in mind for adding a bit of blue to my neutral color palette…
These darling blue and white chairs are the inspiration for changes coming to StoneGable!
I could almost live at my local Pottery Barn outlet. It’s exactly 4.7 miles from my home. Dangerously close actually. This is a place where everybody knows my name. Just like “Norm” if you are old enough to remember! I was there this past weekend and even before I got inside I spied these chairs through the window. Yup! I literally said out loud, “I LOVE those chairs”!!!!
I really was not ready to push the blue button just yet, but the chairs forced my hand! Especially since they were 40% off the outlet price. I do love a fabulous bargain. But not just because of that… but because these were the right chairs! So they came home to live at StoneGable. And I am thrilled.
They take me a step away from the upscale farmhouse look I’ve been curating for about 6 years. I still like a touch of farmhouse in my inspired farmhouse home but I’m going back to my classic American styling roots.
I love these chairs modern low profile and comfy lumbar cushioning. But the fabric is my very favorite! This almost navy and creamy white works so well with the whites and caramel neutrals that are the workhorses of my family room color palette!
Much of my furnishings in the family room will stay with just a couple of changes.
Here’s what I’m planning…
As you can see I’m not giving up my neutrals but adding a little blue richness! But just a little!
The walls will still be Benjamin Moore Sonnet and trim Atrium White.
And I am looking for crisp white cotton drapes that hang from the rods I already have in my family room.
I’m still looking for a side table and a few accents. I would not call this a makeover because I’m mostly using what I have. So let’s call this “freshen up”.
As the room gets pulled together I’ll share its progress!
