Hello kilkens4,

That would depend on two things: the pattern, and your preference for pattern. If you want to go with navy and the navy has a bold pattern it may compete with the trellis in the chairs:
Gerardi Home
Our Navy Living Room
Nantucket Summer Home
Western Springs Living Room

If the navy rug has pattern, but is softer and non-competitive with the trellis on the chair and you also tend to like pattern, then it could work:
Living Room
Niche Interiors: San Francisco Interior Design Services
CIty Projects
Abbe Fenimore - Studio Ten 25

But if you want to keep it simple, clean and straightforward, keep the rug solid or tonal:
W Residence
Candlelight Makeover - LaJolla
Zem Navy Blue Matlida Rug
Mohawk Hampton Transom Navy Blue Solid Hi/Low Pile Carved 5' x 8' Rug (6179)

Of course, pictures of the chairs and the sofa would help, too :)

Best of luck and please let us know if we can be of additional assistance,

Hello aju007,

Be certain that the structure is sound prior to placing anything on the roof. After that has been determined, you might think about using it for either a deck with cozy chairs and table or a garden area. A few Houzz examples:
Tower House

Mill Valley Cabins

Hello quistie,

Four is intriguing. The thought of moving past the bed to get to the living area on the other floor plans bothers me, and perhaps some of your guests in the future. Four allows for a clear definition of those two spaces. You mentioned not purchasing any additional furniture, but with a console table picked up at Target or Goodwill placed behind the sofa, you could place tall lamps on that and REALLY define the spaces.

Best of luck!

I agree with Cabell Design Studio, it might be awkward for your new roomie (or his/her friends) to use the couch/tv if they have to cross your bed; or worse, they start using your bed as seating if you do not know them.
I would choose the first layout over the fourth, only because I dislike the TV at the entrance to the kitchen. I know you don't want to purchase any furniture, but I would seriously consider finding a cheap room divider to put in between the tv space and your bed though. I tried the living room-room set up once and I really didn't expect how much I'd dislike not having some sort of divider. I've even seen people just hang nice shower rods with curtains.
Good luck and hopefully it all works out the easiest and for the best!

Hello miriambuckwold,

This sounds like a personal decision and not one based on trend. You might spend some time on this website taking a look at various avenues...there are so many images here that if you create an idea book for glossy and an idea book for matte and then perhaps one for 4x12 and perhaps one for large wall tile, you can take a look at the idea books as a whole to see which speaks to you the most. That one will have the longest last factor. Think also of the maintenance of a glossy tile in the bath vs a matte tile. Over time, glossy shows water spots. Accent tiles will always be available, the glass and marble are very popular at the moment.

Hello tenncorp3575,

Oh, I wish we were close to you... this is one of our favorite types of windows! Larged arched windows can create challenges, but can also be treated with lovely draperies. Think of one of the following: hung over the entirety, hung in line with the arch, or hung at a natural break, as in the spring line or stile where the arch meets the larger rectangle of the window. Take a look at a few examples to see if any of them would suit your requirements for light, privacy and aesthetic.

hi, so you don't think the designs on the pillows will be too much with the orange rug? i have a throw listed in the picture that has some pink and orange in it. I definitely want a pop of color but keep it neutral at the same time. do you think i should add different pillows to the mix? like navy blue?

Cabell Design Studio
The navy would not be in keeping with your palette. With the orange of the rug and limey green and yellow of the pillows paired with the pink stripe on the throw you actually have a very sophisticated palette set up... we call it an analogous color scheme and it can be difficult to pull off... these colors that are in line with each other along the color wheel. Yes, the orange will work. Now, if you are speaking to the patterns in particular, then the trellis on the middle pillow may be in competition with the trellis pattern on the floor, but that is a detail. Perhaps a solid in that same middle color would be a better fit for you.

Hello raw1421,

You will be provided with loads of suggestions, but ours is a very, very light pink. Almost not pink. This will contrast with your teals and black and provide an enrichment of saturation of those colors you most love. Try Ben Moore 2011-70, Light Quartz, or 2101-70, Tropical Sand, 886, Blanched Coral, or OC-72, Pink Damask.

I agree with the comment above in the manner that I would try a light color because dark colors make rooms look smaller. I would also recommend you match your room color to your curtains and not vice versa because it may be tough to find colors that match to the colors of your curtains. But, since you requested blue and teal. I have attached a few options for you. I also suggest you try a goldish color, not too gold, but close to it. Almost light yellow acutally.

Hello Joz,

Actually I quite like the wall color even though you have mixed a warm tone (fireplace stone) and cool tone (wall color) together. White Stone would have provided possibly too strong a contrast between the two and a strong fireplace wall focal point, especially with a black screen placed on top. As for the TV overlapping the stones on either side, yes, it will look odd. Too big; optimally it should fit inside the space. Is it possible to downsize?

As an audio visual design engineer, I must try to talk you out of mounting above the fireplace.

A fire is for mood and ambiance....the tv is for entertainment...the 2 should, optimally, be on opposite walls. At the very least, perpindicular walls.

Save the mantle area for a great piece of artwork, or an heirloom clock, candlesticks, etc...

VERY helpful pictures! Weathered Wood has my vote completely. Completely. Great match to the tones in the brick. The yellow undertones in Barkwood are very apparent when close to the brick and will be as well on top of the roof. The charcoal is very very dark and will be just too overwhelming. Driftwood is blah. Can't wait to see what others have to say and also would love a picture when completed ! Good luck, Elizabeth

Yes, I think it will look very nice together as a material combo. The weathered wood choppiness that you refer to is enhanced when you are viewing it up close. When up on the roof it will provide a more dimensional look, which is what it sounds like you are shooting for anyway, and will provide additional texture rather than a solid wall of color, which is also what the charcoal would do, provide you with a solid swath of black. Might not be what you want.

To see the yellow in the Barkwood take a close look at the pictures of both Barkwood and Weathered Wood on your computer screen. Do you see how yellow the mortar looks in the Barkwood pictures? That is a direct result of the yellower foundation in the Barkwood shingles. The weathered wood keeps both the mortar and the highlights in the brick much whiter. Cleaner look. Okay, now I have to go to work! Good luck!

I have cordless cellular shades on our French doors and they have been great. I'm not a fan of Roman shades in a kids room. They are hard for a child to maneuver and then they break. When our son moved into their house that's what happened and they, too, changed all the window treatments to cordless cellular. Lots of color options and blackout are available.

Yes, Charlotte, those are white cellular. Lots of options there from special order custom to big box store and all will do just fine for your installation. Tie them down to a cleat so the cords are not at all available or go cordless, as stated above. We have installed these for several clients and, while simple, are perfect for functionality and need. Good luck!

Hello katmess,

SO MANY options! Just as a thought, though, if the fence is on your property, paint it bright... white or cerulean. Train vines up the side and place regular (think repetition) containers with potted plants in front. A few additional examples:

It seems like you are looking to do something with found objects (ie door) I had a client that wanted to put a screen up along the edge of her property with found objects that she roped/wired together. It was a very interesting wall to look at. See pic for explanation. She used pieces of canvas, metal, and artwork.

I think painting the cabinets but leaving the walls white is a great way to tackle this. Either charcoal gray or black would be super because of the floor . . slight nod to black for working nicer right up against the green. I don't think I would introduce another color due to scale of space . . .but love the black or charcoal idea. . . if you are painting black, you will get to see charcoal as they tint your primer . .so you can always adjust the final color based on results.

Hello Mollie,

If the green tile and counter are staying I like your idea of dark or even a medium tone grey. That color choice would update the bathroom and tone down the green. Another thought would be a rich chocolate color. Really dark chocolate, which would set off the green. Take a look at a few Houzz examples, color combos with green and either grey or chocolate:

Mulberry Lane Pool House

Hello pcmom1,

You are in just the right place... push your thoughts way out there to see what rolls back around and makes sense. You might, perhaps, regret the sink in the bedroom idea later. It could be a definite turnoff for potential buyers and that is something you will want to avoid. Good in a nursery perhaps for the mother and father, but not when the child gets old enough to reach it. Closet space is much more agreeable. Best of luck!

How would you feel about either a steel blue or a rusty red? The blue would be a direct contrast to both the grass and the brick facades in the background, which would offer strong visual excitement, and the red would complement the brick facades directly behind the garage which would in effect highlight the green expanse of the lawn keeping it homogenous and a focal point.....

Wash the wood with gray (mid tone warm gray mixed with 1/2 water) to get a driftwood reclaimed look and paint the brick solid white. Watch out for the pinky beige in your palette, hard to work with . . stick with a true linen instead .. . .
Here are my color suggestions
bm sandy hook gray (to water down and wash wood - do two applications)
natural linen (kitchen cabinets, upholstery, great on walls)
china white on brick and most of your trim . . . http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/sandyhookgray http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/naturallinen http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/paint-color/pm20#ce_s=china white

Hello Jenny,

Great question! By adding a visual barrier between the living room and dining room spaces you can achieve a distinct separation of space without adding a wall. Think about either something coming up from the floor, like a console table behind the sofa with two candlestick or table lamps on it, a set of antique columns that don't quite reach the ceiling, or maybe they do, or something hanging down from the ceiling, like a sculpture, piece of art or a drapery effect. Take a look at a few Houzz examples for inspiration in your own space:

Adding a chandelier would really help.

I have taken everyone's advice and moved some things right away. I realized the rug in the living area was too small so I moved it to the dining area. I also put a lamp to break up the room. I think I will get two slightly smaller lamps to put there. Now I need a new big rug for the living room. Any color suggestions?

Hello Christine,

Great ideas for re-use... paint away! You might think about limiting your color selection on the top. If the table were all one color, either distressed white or navy blue, then the valence and chair fabrics would really pop. If the table has stripes of varying color then the table will really take center stage. Either way, it's what you want to see in the room, the table or the treatments. Perhaps, if you are looking for fun, you could paint the entire table yellow instead? Or perhaps a band of yellow around the apron with a contrasting navy blue leg and top?

Green is the unifying theme in your d/r so a variation of a muted green, like libradesigneye an mick50 suggest, will really get things going. The blue then becomes the accent (like in your lamp shades, valance, and art). The green helps with the country feel as well.

I love blue tables for the french country kitchen look, but your area needs the lighter green/yellows to keep it fresh. Have fun and keep us posted. I think a reversal of the lamp shades (blue with green inset) as the theme for seat cushions would be great fun!

Black table and white chairs give you an idea of what it would look like with a navy table and white or cream chairs to match the lighter color in the valance and upholstery.

Hello barbythornton,

Travertine would look lovely in your new master bath. Remember that travertine is a very porous stone and will show wear, dirt and stains over time. A polished finish will deter some of that more than a honed finish, but the honed finish certainly looks and feels old world and warm, regardless of your color choice.

Silver - cooler and contemporary

Grigio - warmer and traditional

Best of luck with your new house! How exciting for you :) Please let us know if we can be of additional assistance,

Hello nblc,

Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the quoted price does include the roller mechanism and the size is listed as 60"wx75"h. Unfortunately, that particular tapestry is no longer available, but there are several that are quite similar. If you are interested, please send your required measurements (within a few inch range, please, for latitude) to us at info@cabelldesignstudio.com and we will be happy to complete a quick search for you.

Enjoy the 4th of July weekend,
