Ideas for a Friend

My awesome blog friend, Sarah at Jeune Marie, emailed me asking to help her with her office. She already had some great ideas, so I can't take all the credit for this idea board.

She brought to the table....

- hunter green walls
- ghost chair (on sale!)
- white french provincial desk
- Ikat fabric

She asked me to come up with some ideas for the room with brown and yellow accents. Well, I sort of threw out the brown and yellow when I stumbled upon this image while searching for hunter green rooms in google search:

{I have no idea where this came from, do you? it's the perfect wall color}

hunter green + black = love

So I took that and ran with it and put together this little board:

So here are the details....

- Sarah originally said she was going to use the ghost chair for the desk, but I think it'd be better hanging out on an empty wall with this amazing handmade Etsy pillow.

- I'd place a glossy black French provintial armchair with a black velvet seat behind the desk. If you cruise Craigslist long enough, you're bound to find one that you can paint and upholster easily.

- As for the Ikat print, Sarah was thinking of curtains, but once I found this pink Ikat rug, I knew it was perfect for the kelly green. I'm not too fond of Ikat prints, but I really think the pink is perfect for a glam room.

- Curtains... I couldn't think of any color that would marry with the green and pink, so I just stuck with a monochromatic style and went with silk green curtains. The ones I chose are slightly different in color from the walls, which I like.

- A little bit gothic, but undeniably feminine... this chandelier is perfect for the room.

- And last but not least, who doesn't love coral? Especially pink coral.

This idea board is an overall picture, because I know Sarah has the talent to take it and run with it. I can't wait to see what she does!
