Making it Yours (MiY)

MiY 4d: Seaside Fair

Scallops and dots and ferris wheels, oh my!

As in the first three looks in this edition of Making it Yours (MiY), the bed, tables, lighting, and seating remain the same. Even the reversible quilt and sheer linen curtains have made a reappearance, yet this room looks completely different from the last.

MiY 4d: Seaside Fair

That bold green color is the same one I used for the rug I painted on our front porch. It’s a little more vivid than I would usually recommend, but the fun wall color paired with embroidered scallop sheets and pom pom pillows would make for a pretty fun look. The round, graphic rug adds some zip, and the ferris wheel photo is perfect for this room.

There is just one more look to go!

    this look is by far my favorite – so fun! I have the pattern of the rug on a chair in my office. I had no idea it came in rug form as well!

    it’s taken me 4 editions to realize that that’s my bed in the MiY … clearly I need to pay closer attention! I’ve been looking for side tables for years, your mock-up had inspired me. Thank you!

    Maybe it’s the pink font, but I read the pillows as “porn porn pillows.” Definitely did a double take!
