“We Need Color!”

Hello everyone!  I feel as if I’m still trying to catch up on all that I neglected the last few months with Lauren’s wedding and her recent move to North Carolina.  She is settling in quite nicely and has become the happy little homemaker.  However, she called within a week of moving into their apartment and said “Mom I need your help with our living room……we need color!”  So I asked her what color she would like to add and of course she said “whatever you think Mom.”  I suggested that maybe she could add green since all of her furniture is brown and she liked that idea.  With that being said, I started shopping!

Because they have nothing on their walls and trying to keep cost down, I purchased fabric from Hancock’s Fabric at 50% off and made fabric wall art.  We all know how expensive wall art can be and I think this will  definitely make a statement and be a focal point in their living room.  


I ordered these beautiful curtain panels from Overstock.com.   They are the perfect shade of green and will look nice with all the accessories that I’ve purchased.

We are planning a little trip to visit Lauren this weekend, so you know what I will be doing……helping her make her apartment her home.  I still have a few more projects to complete for her before we leave so I better get busy.

As always, thanks for the visit and enjoy your day.
