Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
A while back a reader wrote asking for more color (his words might have been, "I love gray and white, but I need some other ideas!"). We came up with this casual living room featuring a single wall painted a bright absinthe-tinged yellow, with cheerful botanical-green accents. Recreate the look with the following elements: Above: Photo by Tom Leighton , via Desire to Inspire . Above: A wood-burning stove (the Russel Pinch table is not kindling, FYI). Above: How Australian: a vase of fragrant eucalyptus. Above: The Hans Wegner Coffee Table is $2,490 from Design Within Reach. Above: For a similar midcentury sofa, consider the Case Study V-Leg Daybed from Modernica. Above: Source an array of botanical pillows at Hable Construction ; prices start at $135. Above: The Night Carafe from Tortoise General Store in LA is $53and also comes in blue or clear glass. Above: Bud Vase in verde is $22 at Heath Ceramics.
