ES8: floral sofa meets modern farmhouse

ES8: floral sofa meets modern farmhouse

Farmhouse + Floral Sofa  

Confession time: I find that I am drawn 99% of the time to solids on upholstery (there are many good reasons I do this, feel free to DM me if you want deets on this preference) so I wanted to challenge myself to incorporate a floral print sofa from Apple and Oak’s inventory. Here’s what I would do to make the sofa at home: don’t try to compete with the print; neutralize everything else! Creamy knits and linen upholstery, a cotton rug in blush tones, a cozy blanket, and a whitewashed plank wall complement the strong floral. Bring in wood tones to "talk to" the sofa frame. A great transitional oversized lantern in wrought iron crowns the space. So how do you think I did!?

ES6: Uncommon Color Combo Dining Room

ES6: Uncommon Color Combo Dining Room

Dining Room Inspiration by Elizabeth Stanton 
An unexpected color combination is one of my favorite ways to infuse personality and character in a space. Peachy melon, olive green, and dusty blue work here for a couple of reasons. One: these colors are all in the same tonal family. Saturated colors like to be with other saturated colors. Muted colors work beautifully with other muted colors. Two: there is a balance of cool and warm tones. The blue, silver, minty green, and gray of the weathered wood are countered by the warmth of the peaches and pinks of the artwork, the copper mugs, and even the olive green rug. I hope these tips give you courage to create some uncommon color combinations in your own life, whether it be in your decor or wardrobe. Find the rug, green ceramic planter, and the bar cart Apple & Oak .
