Many people often ask me where I get my color inspirations from and honestly it’s different every time. You see, I get inspired by color itself! And when I found this thrift store find—an original water color by artist Margaret Hoybach from the early 70′s—I knew this would be my color guide for my next big makeover.
Yep, I’m gearing up to remake a late 60′s home that needs a lot of color inspiration!
The fun part of this project is also one of the more difficult in the design process. When you’re working with specific colors, the fabric shops don’t always have what exactly what you need.
However, after shopping around 3 fabric stores, I hit the jack pot! This water color painting, and five fabric choices will be used to remake a guest bedroom right off of the den. The walls will be painted white with one blue accent wall to frame the artwork. Lots of sewing on this project will be needed. I”ll be making drapes, pillows and hand decorating lampshades but I’m really looking forward to this project. In about a month or two from now, I’ll be showing you the before and after shots.
I’ll probably combine both the blue and green paint onto furniture and other accessories as well and maybe–just maybe I’ll sneak in a little bit of yellow too.
