Today, I am joining Emily A. Clark and her "Working with What You Have" party. I am sharing my family room.
I have lamented over my red sofa, before.
I am sick and tired of it, as I mentioned here.
However, I have made it work. I found this great fabric with green and yellow and turquoise, as well as red.
These pillows help bring other colors into my den.
And then I went from yellow walls to gray....
Which was a refreshing change. I was not thrilled with the gray and red combo, at first - a little too much like the high school cafeteria where my daughter goes to school (their colors are red and gray).
But the combo has grown on me - especially since I added more green.
And speaking of "working with what you have" - do you see that slip covered chair? Drop cloths I sewed and shared here. A new chair would have been my choice - but it was not in the budget.
In my opinion, having everything brand-spanking-new is not appealing to the eye. "Working with what you have" can bring out a lot of creativity!
