What if you could pick one room in your home and completely start over?
You had a clean slate….a blank canvas just waiting to be filled…
…you could go crazy with colors and not worry about how they blended in with the rest of your home….or you could decide it was time to neutralize and embrace a more subtle sensibility with natural tones and textures.
What would you do?
We’re so excited to be bringing you an awesome giveaway today from Maine Cottage. An online furniture store like no other! Where each piece is made to order and perfect for adding some cottage charm to your home. With loads of fabric choices, beautiful accessories for every room and, of course, gorgeous furniture, there is truly something for everyone here!
We thought it would be fun for each of us to put together a dream room using some of the pieces from Maine Cottage. We’re picking rooms where we would want to start fresh. Rooms where we could just have fun and fill the blank canvas with whatever our hearts desired!
Heather is going to show how she would decorate her office and Vanessa’s going to show how she would transform her dining room.
Heather’s dream Office Makeover:
There’s something fun about planning a room makeover from scratch! Although, I’ve finished many of the rooms in my new home…the office is still empty, except for a few stray boxes. I thought it would be fun to do a virtual makeover of this space, revolving around a cheerful color combination of blues, yellows and ivory!
Tweet Suite: True Blue
Lucky Leaf in Sun
Based on this fun and bright color combination, I put together this design board for my new office:
The office makeover revolves around the Low Tide Desk, in this fun and playful blue! If you’ve seen my new house, you know I’m crushing on blue right now..and have a variation of blue in every room.
…and I love this fun Jack Dining Room Chair. I like a nice upholstered chair at my desk, it’s so much more comfortable!
Of course every office needs a comfy occasional chair, like the Mason in this darling fabric Tweet Suite , for guests or to just sit and read a book.
The fun part of any room makeover is accessorizing! Main Cottage has lots of beautiful coastal accessories to add the perfect finishing touch to any room.
I’m ready to get going on my office makeover…and feel so inspired by Main Cottage design boards!
And now, here’s Vanessa’s jumping off point for her imaginary dining room makeover:
I live in the Pacific NW and if there’s one thing we need in our homes it’s bright and cheerful colors! I was inspired by this warm and beautiful color palette when I was thinking about how I would redecorate my dining room.
Fabric and Paint Choices:
Based on this fun and cheerful color combination above, I put together this design board for my imaginary new dining room. It’s definitely more casual than my current dining room and I can see it being a place for my family to gather together for many a relaxed evening around the big barn wood table.
The room really comes together around this fabulous Jill Dining Chair in a colorful pattern.
And I had so much fun adding pops of color throughout the “room” with fun accessories!
We’re teaming up with 3 other bloggers to bring you this fabulous giveaway from Main Cottage! Check out the rooms created by Kim from Sand and Sisal, Beth from Home Stories A to Z and Jessica from Four Generations One Roof.
Thanks to the generous folks at Maine Cottage, one lucky winner will receive a $500 Gift Card!
