I left a little of my heart in North Carolina.
Have you ever been there?
It was a week full of majestic mountains and rolling hills covered with brilliant colored trees and streams of sunlight dancing across the horizon and cool crisp air that smelled like fall…..
….and a decorating challenge.
La-z-boy hosted a group of bloggers and invited them to create a room inspired by a sofa they created.
I designed a neutral sofa (are you surprised) with classic lines and silver nail head trim. Then I selected SW Mindful Gray for the walls and when I started…..my room looked like this…..
And after a day of shopping the La-z-boy showroom and decorating and rearranging furniture and choosing fresh flowers and adding a brick wall and styling the room…..
….it looked like….
…wait for it….
…wait for it….
Can you even believe it?
And the best part?
After I finished…..I sat in the space…..and pretended I lived there.
I snuggled up in the leather chair with the warm cozy throw with the amazing reclaimed wood pedestal table next to it…..
People would walk by the room….and I would invite them in and they would sit on the sofa and the houndstooth chair and we would laugh.
With the occasional guffaw.
Then I would ask tell a story or two…..and ask if they wanted a glass of sweet tea.
It was amazing.
And for that afternoon in the beautiful rolling hills of North Carolina….I closed my eyes and pretended……
……this was my living room.
I’ll be posting more about the room in a couple of weeks with pictures and details and there will be an amazing contest and an opportunity to win a shopping spree.
But for today…..just for today……I wanted it to be about warmth and laughter….
And a glass of North Carolina sweet tea.
