So unbelievably excited to finally share some of our new home inspiration with y’all! Since this is the first room I’m sharing, I’ll give a little backstory to the project. We purchased this home back in October 2020 and started renovations in February 2021. Initially, we spent a lot of time interviewing contractors + designers, going over new layout ideas, electrical plans, learning more about the house, educating ourselves on appliances, etc. And are now finally honing in on the FUN STUFF! Bring on the fabrics, window treatments, wallpaper + paint.

Our wonderful Interior Designer Jennifer Patterson of Terra Designs has been invaluable with guiding us through the construction process and kick-starting the interiors phase. We’ve made such great progress on multiple fronts of the home design, but I was finding it a tad difficult to convey our vision in a way that’s easily digestible. So I asked my dear friends Candice Lorraine + Marni Rothschild Durlach to help bring these spaces to life in a way that would translate to COLOR by K and its’ respective social media channels. The result was magical!

Our Green Garden Family Room

First up – our informal green garden Family Room / Den. I see this space being inspired by a country garden: envision layers of fresh, vibrant greens, textures, patterns + prints. Along with some vintage pieces and collectibles {bookcase + coffee table decor} and classic lines, like our grasscloth, ming foot coffee table. Our screened in porch is also off the Den, so hoping to pull this color scheme out there as well. Which will allow a good flow between the indoor/outdoor spaces when the french doors are open. While these mooodboards serve as overall inspiration for the room + include elements pulled by Jennifer, I can only hope it’s this beautiful when it’s all said and done!

Green Garden Family Room

Fabrics Throughout the Space

  • Crypton Home Green | It’s a bold choice, but ultimately when Jennifer presented this beautiful fresh, green hue vs. a neutral blend for our two couches, I couldn’t pass up on the green! The neutral would have been beautiful as well. But as a color lover, it just felt like a vibrant couch will really make the room pop, as opposed to a neutral base palette with pops of green. I think on it’s own, it may be seen as an aggressive design move. But blended with softer greens, complimentary patterns and accents of mustard, blue and white – it will come together seamlessly!
  • Greenhouse Fabrics F1338 Jade | For a couple accent pillows. Love the chinoiserie print, as seen on far left below!
  • Schumacher Temple Garden II in Green | To be used for a couple accent pillows; seen on far right.
  • Schumacher Garden Lotus in Leaf | To be used for roman shade window treatments. The second Jen showed me this fabric I was IN LOVE. It really sets the tone for the entire room.

A Touch of Velvet

While velvet is of course a heavier fabric, and honestly after 5+ years of having this velvet Article couch {that we’ve kindly dubbed ‘big blue’}, I was ready to be done with it. However, it certainly brings a sense of richness to any space. In addition to two green couches framing the room, we’ll have an accent, swivel chair. Upholstered in a neutral crypton material, piped in deep green velvet.

Plan for Built-Ins

The previous owners installed this beautiful built-in wall; which will serve as not only ample store in this room, but also a fun focal point for decor, family photos + heirlooms. Along with the rest of the room, we’re going bold here! The plan is to paint the entire unit Benjamin Moore ‘Central Park Green‘ and polish off with brass hardware. Jury is still out on installing grasscloth along the back wall as well. I’d love to, but we may opt to do that in a later phase.

Will also be adding two of these brass picture lights from Circa Lighting above the two outer sections of shelving.

Before…Stay Tuned for the After!

Love this look?

The majority of our exact furniture pieces, lighting, fabrics, etc. were sourced directly through our Designer so I’m not able to link specific pieces on everything, but love these pieces for inspiration!
