Kristin color washed and dragged the walls in the main living area in a mottled chartreuse and gold. The vintage desk is home to old photographs, a blue antique typewriter that belonged to her father and other meaningful pieces.
I love chartreuse! This mix of the old desk, windsor chair, and brightly colored wall book case has given me a great idea: I'll paint one wall and bring my antiques from my old house. I like the juxtaposition.
This home is delightfully original. It inspires me to eliminate the things in my home that I do not love. Everything has something appealing about it. They did not just go for a"look" . Everything is a little piece of the dream.

this room is a dream. the chartreuse with pops of red...then the navy/red rug totally balances out the crazy energy of the chartreuse. and then the antique woods/all the books bring so much elegance, sophistication and personality!
