Welcome back from the weekend! We had a weekend, right? I could have sworn that I just logged off the computer and it was Friday but suddenly here we go again. I spent this weekend in Charleston, SC for the Cooper River Bridge Run and I am still feeling the pain. If you haven’t been it’s such a fun event, one of my favorites of the year, but you go and go for an entire day. We always end the race at a hole in the wall bar and make our way around the city for lunch and drinks. By the time evening comes you are still in race clothes, sweaty hair in a bun, and really ready for a shower and bed. But it’s a blast in the best kind of way and luckily only comes once a year! You can catch some snaps of the weekend over on Instagram if you missed them.
To kick off our week I am sharing another Scheme-of-the-Week and this one is called, Playful Garden. I named it that because I totally see this combo in a little girl’s room. It has a sophisticated palette but the florals keep it playful.
1. This combo is all about the fabulous floral rug! The mix of pinks, corals, and navy create the perfect preppy mix that is just screaming to go in a little girl’s room. I love how the florals are more abstract so it feels more modern.
2. The colors in the rug helped inspire the other pieces in this combo. I chose polka dot chambray to keep things feeling casual. I imagine the chambray on a chair, roman shade, or throw pillows. It’s a classic fabric that could transition as the room changes.
3. Along with the chambray, I chose a pink tassel fringe. I love the idea of adding it to the chambray if it were used for shades or pillows. It pulls in more of the pinks and keeps the room age-appropriate.
4. I added in a thicker more textural tweed fabric to keep things from getting too sweet. I would use this for euro shams or a lumbar on the bed.
As far as paint for this room I think you could go soft and neutral or really bold depending on your comfort level. I love the idea of a pale peach/pink or a light blue/gray. I also can envision a bold green or navy. Either way, the room would be oozing personality with fabrics that could easily be incorporated into other designs should you change the room.
