Met Monday: Breakfast Room Spruce Up
I love Metamorphosis Monday. All my food and design projects are in the "oh, it's a mess" stage. So I thought I'd show an oldie: the breakfast room's before/after.
After: I moved the draperies from the library and added panels.
Before, the room felt a little cold with all of the tone on tone. With the fabric scraps, I had pillows made.
I've read that neutrals are supposed to be better with tablescaping, but I have never given a flip if my dishes matched my draperies. Or even if the dishes match EACH OTHER. Life isn't matchy matchy is my motto, and it's my mom's motto, too :-)The day that dishes start having rules, I'm outta here, baby. It's back to paper plates.
Please visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday to see inspirational before and afters. See you there.
