Wake Up your Walls...

Be Brave - pop some bold colour accents into your living space, like this!
'Pottery Red' from Behr

I found this article & images from 'Country Living' of this fabulous Kitchen-Dining Living Room in a Pennsylvanian home in the States. I love the bold use of this 'pottery red' colour on the walls , internal door frames and island cabinetry - coupled with white trim & white decorative plates, although bright and strong - by keeping the colour scheme to 1 main colour and 1 accents, and 1-2 highlights, the effect is streamlined, synergised and contemporary whikst still cosy through the styling of the furniture & decorative pieces.

Here's a little exert from Country Living article... 'Colorful Farmhouse Style'
Anne Gridley and Gary Graves bought a home in a hurry, then spent the next 15 years tinkering in order to create an old house that feels continually renewed.

Gridley and Graves have spent 14 years amassing the oyster plates that line the walls of their Pennsylvania dining room. Graves built the table from old barn floorboards to fit the room's narrow proportions. The sofa cushions flaunt a funky, flea market fabric. The couple searched for their vintage appliances online. "That fridge is more energy efficient than a new one," Graves swears of their 1930s model. Scalloped molding gives these shelves sweet-shop appeal.
