It has this subtle watercolor feel to it, and I think it needs to come live with me. The colors in my living room are aqua, cream, chartreuse, a deep grey/blue, and a pop of yellow. It is coming together, but with the construction we have going on at our house, and my surgery, projects have slowed down a bit. Check out these rooms for some aqua and chartreuse inspiration – just what I needed, and I hope you enjoy it, too.

What do you think of this color story? Does it have a place in your home?
My head is pretty much a continuous current of design. Ideas are bouncing around everywhere, and I get inspired by everything from a local art exhibit to the paint trim pattern on the mini train you can ride around my city. (You would have seen those photos if you follow me on Instagram @graceelizmitchell)
But there are rooms and elements of rooms and color schemes and patterns I fall in love with instantly, and I remember them forever, fondly thinking about them from time to time like old friends.
Today I am sharing one of my old friends with you, a room designed for the 2011 DC Design House by Lauren Liess of Pure Style Home. I j’adore her fabric line, and her style in many ways is my happy place. Natural elements layered with lots of texture, a little industrial, and a touch of moodiness, all brought together with some color.

What adds a more organic textural feel than grasscloth wallpaper? I love how it’s on the ceiling, too!
