Last month I showed you some photos of Jamie and Josh's Great Room and Mantel. I had intended on posting these pictures shortly after but of course got behind and forgot. Anyway, we took these photos the same day as the other ones which is why all of the accessorizing on the coffee table is exactly the same as before.
Here is what their great room looks like during most of the year:
One of the reasons I most love working with neutrals as a base is that it is so easy and inexpensive to change out the feel of a room. The above photo shows how their great room looks most of the year (except for Christmas, which you can see by clicking here). For summer, though, Jamie wanted a more bright and cheery look and so she made some pillow covers (which she made in the same size as the other pillows so she could just slip them on and off) in a coral pattern and a solid coral and then added some potted plants that had the same color and that was it - the room has a much more "summery feel!"
To see more pictures of this room and for info on the paint color and where most of the pieces are from click here.
I hope you all are enjoying the last bit of summer! My mind is starting to get into fall decorating mode. I have some projects I am hoping to get working on in the next few weeks and hopefully will have some new tutorials soon!
And now onto the winner of the Jane Austen Pillow Cover:
