Ann-Marie's House

Not too long ago my blogging friend Ann-Marie posted about a room in her house that has been a pain to decorate. As soon as I read that she was unhappy despite trying lots of things, I sprang into action. 

Or, at least in my mind I did... It was a few more days before I summoned up the courage to send her an email and offer my help.

Being a regular reader of Ann-Marie's blog, Raising May Flowers, I was already familiar with her style. I also knew that she and her husband have done several projects to turn their beautiful house into a home for their young family.

I was giddy when Ann-Marie wrote back, agreeing to let me do an e-design for her space!

The room that we will be transforming is a sitting area just off the foyer. 

The room opens to the dining room, and Ann-Marie said that they use the sitting area before and after dinner, and when entertaining.

She also sometimes uses the space for reading.

Her favorite colors for her house are brown and blue with a pop of red here & there.

The maximum budget for the project is $200.

She has lots of great pieces and some beautiful features in the room--like these large windows and the crown molding & pillars on the dining room-side.

I can't wait to show Ann-Marie (and you!) what I've come up with.  :)
