Indigo Decorating Infusion
Disclosure: Annie Selke provided me with product for this post. All opinions are entirely my own.
Our family room is next on my hit list. I have plans in place for a major overhaul, but until then, I’m trying to freshen up the space a bit and using smoke and mirrors to give it a new look! When Annie Selke offered to send along some of their newly launched autumn decor collection (hello, indigo!), I was THRILLED to use it as a springboard for the family room reboot.
To get you up to speed, we found that couch on Craiglist but the back cushions made it a little shallow. So… I got rid of the back cushions and swapped them out for throw pillows. Turns out, coordinating throw pillows is easier said than done. It also turns out, that the couch is feeling more and more drab the longer we have it. Those indigo throw pillows from Annie Selke are the PERFECT pop of dark rich blue to brighten the pillow collection. They’re my favorite shibori pattern and I love the different shapes.
That luxe linen throw blanket extends the rich navy from the couch onto that DIY leather pouf (tutorial coming soon!). It’s cozy and textural and makes a KILLER fort in case you were wondering. It’s also great for keeping your tootsies warm during a Flipping Out marathon. Just sayin’.
I typically don’t have anything on the coffee table because of kids dancing on the furniture, etc. but a tray to corral stuff is ALWAYS a good thing. I love this unbreakable melamine tray because of the pattern, duh, but it also keeps my papers and pencils slightly sorted. That peony diffuser is one of my favorite ways for bringing in scent because candles and kids don’t mix. The diffuser has been moved to the mantel, but the tray is still safe on the coffee table with my wireless headphones and my notepad safe and sound.
Until we get new couches in here, I experimented by wrapping the seat cushions with that rich blue shibori cloth. They complement the new pillows and look great. Probably not wildly practical, but it was fun for photos and got me excited about some bolder colors in this space!
You’ve seen them before, but those foot stools came from the flea market and got an $8 vinyl makeover. The kids mostly use them for leaping off of, but they’re nice extra seating too. A sturdy cement planter means I can have at least one plant in here and a thrifted bowl keeps remote controls from disappearing. There are a couple bins of toys in the cabinet where the old TV used to live and a couple more bins have migrated in here and live in front of the fireplace.
This family room update is a mini update, but seeing those rich indigo tones in here helps envision this space with a bit more saturated color and vibrancy. It also solidified my love for that deep navy. I want much more of it in this space! Click here to sign up for the latest fall catalog from Annie Selke… SO many good things in there!
