Your Picks. Your Place. :: Living Room Design Board

Remember a couple weeks ago when I shared my Tea Towel Inspired Bedroom and I mentioned I was working on other Design Boards. Well, this is what it was for.

My first room assignment from Apartment Guide was create rustic living room hideaway. I was given a certain dollar amount I could 'spend' per room.  Inspired by the color of honey and thoughts of a cozy cabin I got to work.

Here's my finished plan!


 What do you think?

I'm just loving all the patterns, colors, and textures. Isn't that bee print just the cutest!? I just want to nestle in on that couch with a good book and waste the day away. Won't you join me (you can bring the sangria!)


Now for the nitty gritty on how you can win some big bucks! Wouldn't it be fantastic if an Inspired by Charm Reader won the grand prize!? I'd be ecstatic!

This is what my board looks like on the site ...


As promised, this is where I'm shamelessly asking begging you to vote for me! (I feel like I'm running for class president or something.)  There are some other fabulous bloggers participating and I don't think I actually win anything other than bragging rights, so winning isn't a huge deal, but it would still be pretty amazing.

 Your votes for my boards are beyond appreciated.

You can also visit the three other fabulous bloggers who are participating in this project...

Jamiely from I Heart Naptime
Diane from In My Own Style
Maryann from Domestically Speaking


From now through August 14th I will share three more design boards (Dining Room, Office and Bedroom) at which time you will be able to vote on those as well. Remember you can vote once a day, so do expect a couple reminders here and there. I promise to keep it to a minimum.

So, this is all pretty excited stuff, right? Would you believe me if I told you it gets better. Guess what, its getting a whole lot better!

And guess who gets to chat on the phone with her this afternoon?! Me!! 

Yeah. I'm kind of freaking out here. Next week I will share some information from our chat. So exciting!

I've wondered about those Buffalo Check Curtains from CountryCurtains for ages, and I had the same kind of cozy, but lightened up version of a fish camp in mind. Of course, I had to vote for you!

Please don't take this as a critique, 'cause I loved it, but your wee little typo here: (yes, I will shamelessly be begging you to vote for mine design boards - tickled me! I think it would be a great name for your own design business. "Mine Designs"!! Cause after all, they are, right?? No one could accuse you of false advertising! Good luck with the voting.
