Colorful Den via Southern Living

I have a vague recollection of seeing this den design in the December 2010 issue of Southern Living, but seeing as how I can't stop obsessing over anything in that minty-jade colorway, it bubbled up to my attention because I adore the paint color and how it is mixed with greens, pinks and tans.

This space is what I consider the perfect cozy den with lots of color but very comfortable and easy on the eyes. I especially love the design board - all the bits look so pretty together. FYI, the wall paint is Dix Blue (82) by Farrow and Ball - it's a little more aqua than mint, but I still love it. Especially since it's such a nice contrast to the rest of the room (the color is only picked up in 2 pillows and slight flecks in the curtains, but it all works so well).

Does anyone know the fabric that is on the pillow in the very bottom right-hand corner of the first picture (the brown/cream fabric)? It's also at the very top of the design board. I love it.

Also note the use of a large circular rug...I don't see that very often, but it's perfect in this space.

What do you like about the room?


  1. Beautiful room! Love the colors in the ikat fabric!

  2. I love the colors, too. Did you change your blog background?
