Love this arrangement and color scheme!

This is from Southern Living. I love the browns, and blues onthe sofa and pillows. Plus the prints with the white platters hanging with them are calling my name.
I am trying to figure out how to incorporate blue back into my house. Years ago the entire house was blue and I have spent a lot of time changing it. Now I want to go back? Are you kidding me? The new aquas hues mixed with the browns are catching my eye lately.
Since I'm in process of redoing my kitchen, if I incorporate blue in there, in means I will have to rethink the rest of my house. Fortunately, my basic furniture and walls are neutrals, so I'll have to ditch the greens and start moving in the aquas.
I want to give a special thank you to my sister-in-law, Sallywhite at, she's the one that gets me started on all these changes. Geeez Sally!!!!
Guess it's true when you update one room, you mess up the rest of them.

You are blaming ME for this??? OK...I'm flattered...:).

Oh good gravy...I am in LOVE with that room. That is beyond gorgeous...I would pay thousands for that look!! That would be so user-friendly in your house too. I think you are off to a great start...but really, Melinda...these are all YOUR ideas. Love, love, love that picture as an inspriation starting point.
