When a Change of Season Calls for a Beautiful Room Refresh

Autumn has always been my favorite time of year. Every August, just like clockwork, I find myself anxiously anticipating the change in season. It prompts me to refresh my wardrobe with yummy sweaters and find new and innovative ways to redecorate my home in preparation for the chilly yet cozier months of the year.

When Sherwin-Williams shared their 2019 Color of the Year, Cavern Clay SW 7701, Kate and I both agreed we loved the look and feel of this color tone and we jumped at the thought of doing a beautiful redesign story around it. I was drawn to the warm terracotta color because of its ancient, elemental roots and mostly by the way it made me feel. Cavern Clay is a blend of midcentury modern style and the rich and earthy American Southwest, which together create a kind of desert modern aesthetic vibe. Because I love and live in all things boho, Kate asked me to take on this makeover story, and if you know me just a little bit, you know I absolutely LOVE anything interiors related, especially if it’s bohemian. So, I couldn’t wait to get started.

Because I’m currently living in a rental unfortunately my bedroom was off limits for painting. So I quickly reached out to good friends Jenny Jorgensen and Kate Worum, the local mavens of She She, a hand-painted print and pattern design studio, to see if they were interested in receiving a little room refresh and luckily Kate Worum was all in! Kate, a local Minneapolis illustrator who recently turned 30, was looking for a fresh start and a little change of scenery in her life. We were happy to provide that to her with a fresh wall of paint in her bedroom, and we thought, why not help a girl out with a full-on room refresh! After kicking off the project I went over to her place right away and we began brainstorming how we could transform her sunny little apartment bedroom into a relaxing bohemian bungalow.

Behr Just Announced Its 2019 Color Of The Year, And You’re Going To Love It

behr-livingroom-blueprint-1535033256

It’s official: 2019 is all about the color blue — Blueprint, to be exact — at least according to Behr. The paint company revealed Blueprint S740-5, a warm, soft hue, as the brand’s 2019 Color Of The Year, describing the shade as “a mid-tone blue that charts a course for people to reimagine the colors and design of their home.” The paint company says it’s meant to signify authenticity, confidence, and timelessness. As far as blues go, this one’s pretty stunning — it feels cozy and inviting, but not overpowering.

Erika Woelfel, Behr’s vice president of color and creative services, called the shade an “instant classic,” adding that, “Much like the sketches builders rely on to bring an architectural design to life, Blueprint S470-5 lays a foundation for consumers to make their unique vision a reality.” Continue Reading >>>
