One Room Challenge Week Two

7.04.2012

my bookcase inspiration

bookcases before

the blue paint in my breakfast room

same blue paint in the dining room

and in the entrance hall


I had the backs of the bookcases painted the same blue I have all over the house, and I can't decide what I think.  Really I can't know until I put the shelves and items inside.  Anyway, that's what I've been busy with around here.  I'm keeping it short today as it's the 4th.  I'll have so much to share next week.  Happy July 4th, friends!  I hope you have a great day!!

Love these gorgeous glimpses into your beautiful home.....and think the pale blue in the bookcase looks fabulous. Happy 4th of July.

Kim said...

Your bookcases are going to be so pretty with the blue in the background. I love the way you have brought this calm color and tone throughout your home! Happy Fourth!

Emily said...

I love the amount of bookcase space you have to work with and then merchandise! I love a great blue too...looking forward to seeing how you put it all together!

Oh, I just hate waiting for paint to dry. If the color is in so many areas of your home, it will look great!

Teresa at Splendid Sass said...

Oh, it is going to be perfect, Jennifer. Can't wait to see!
Happy 4th.

I love the contrast of the blue behind the bookcase; have painted behind one of mine and will do the other soon!

Happy 4th and the blue & white porcelain is perfection!

I love the blue! And all the blue and white porcelain you have all over the house! Aak - I am in LOVE! I am hoping to hit Chinatown and get me some ginger jars for my makeover, could use a few to add pops of blue to match my new artwork :)

Happy 4th!

Jessie said...

Your breakfast room looks fresh and gorgeous. I love all the color combination. Great progress on the bookcase, looking forward to see more next week!

Happy 4th! Hope you have a wonderful celebration today!

Lovn' the blue. Looks like such a soothing color. You are fast!

Nicole Scott said...

I personally love the blue! There is much to be said for a)continuity of colour throughout the house and b)frugality - using what you have...Love your inspiration pic. Decor mags pics with dogs get me every time

Kerry @ Design du Monde said...

Looking good! I have a similar color in my bedroom and I love it. I think it makes great sense and creates flow by using the color in several spaces.

Beth Connolly said...

I'm starting to think you like blue. Looks great. Enjoy your Fourth.

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

I'm loving it. And loving all of your blue and white jars all over the house!

Kecia said...

Happy 4th!!

Looks like a beautiful shade of blue. I think it will look great once it's all pulled together.

I think it'll look very pretty and fresh, and leave you lots of room to place bright objects, if you like.

Kimberly said...

You cannot go wrong with blue and white. This is so exciting - I'm on the edge of my seat to see more from all of you talented ladies!

Love the blue and white. The continuity throughout the house is very calming. Like everyone else, I'm in awe of your Ginger Jar collection! Catch you next week.

Lauren (The Cottage Mix) said...

After many years of having the back of my bookcases white (I'm not sure why I kept them white?) but one day I grabbed a sample can from the garage and painted them Wythe Blue...what a difference! Fun project for you :)

Janet @ House Four said...

Love the blue for the bookshelf backs. This room will be fablous!

Kim said...

So funny....I used the exact picture torn from the magazine as inspiration for my bookshelf restyling a couple of years ago!! It came out great and I'm sure yours will be even better! I am a bit OCD with it and have mixed things up since...but it was featured on a friend's blog a little while back -
