Tip 1: Build A Room Around A Theme

I interviewed Julia Dzafic, the creative mind behind the blog Lemon Stripes. She used a Greek Key motif and a predominantly blue & white color scheme to decorate her family room and has some great tips!

Build A Room Around A Theme

Tip 2: Go Glam With Texture & Pattern

Go Glam With Texture & Pattern

" The texture and pattern make a big difference. The wallpaper gives the whole room a glam, upscale vibe that we love."




 
 

Tip 3: Add a pop of color!



" The orange fabric on the pillows was perfect! It brought in the blue hues and had an interesting pattern. The navy piping completes the look."

Tip 4: Accessorize Skillfully

Accessorize Skillfully
" Styling a room is half the battle in decorating! I selected several picture frames worked well together in shades of blue. Then I placed ginger jars and coastal baskets around them to bring in a fancier element."
 
 

Tip 5: Think About function, Not Just Looks



" When designing a room, don't just go for looks. Think about function too! We use this room a lot for movies and hanging out so it had to be equal parts comfortable and chic."
