Laundry Room Rugs

So.. guess what? My husband spilled shoe oil on my Laundry Room Rug, and its a goner. Soooo I get to find a new one!! Yes, I love to have a legitimate reason to spend money and update my house.

AND right now Target is having a hug sale on most of their home décor items. So all of these rugs are from Target and very affordable.

My Laundry Room has Gray wall, Yellow cabinets, and Turquoise accents. Since my Laundry Room is also my Mud Room and I'm married to a farmer, dark colors are best! These are the choices I've narrowed it down to. Let me know which one you like the best! All the source links are located below.

So many beautiful rugs, and I can only pick one.... ;) Unless something else gets spilled somewhere else... ha ha!

 

 

Modern Glam Teen Bedroom

So lately I've been browsing furniture pieces for girls bedrooms, because I will be redoing my daughters bedroom (actually she's moving rooms and the new baby who's due end of Summer will be getting my daughters old room.) So as I've been browsing I've found some really fun pieces for a teen girls room, so I created this E-Design for you guys to highlight some of my favorites. These items are all from Target, so the prices are excellent.

How to Choose the Perfect Paint Color

So who out there struggles with how to choose the perfect paint color? This is a question I get asked a lot!  I'll admit I used to struggle as well....yep had a few walls in my past that I had to repaint. It can be such a pain when you scour through paint samples, think you've found the perfect color, buy the paint, roll on that first pass, and get that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach that this NOT the right color.......arrgh! I've been there, I understand your pain.

So this week I wanted to share with you some of my tips for choosing the perfect paint color. I've also featured some homes from the HGTV show Fixer Upper and the paint colors from the Magnolia Home Paint Collection. The paint colors are absolutely fabulous! Enjoy!

How to Choose the Perfect Paint Color

How to Choose the Perfect Paint Color

-Try to match a color that's already present in your room such as a pillow, blanket, or home décor item. If you don't want to match a color exactly, try to coordinate your new paint color with the existing colors in your space. Your goal is to have everything blend together.

-When selecting a color pay close attention to any underlying tones that may come out. Look at the full range of the sample stick to see if this is the right color family your looking for. For example: Some reds can have to much orange, or too much pink. A purple can have too much blue or to much pink. Just something to think about when looking at paint samples.

-If there are two colors you can't decide on, go for the lighter one. Generally paint seems to look darker on the wall than on the paint swatch.

-If you want a space to feel bigger use whites, pastels, or neutral colors. If you want a space to feel smaller use darker colors. Generally white or light colors look best on ceilings and painted trim.

-For an accent wall I like to select a darker color that's on the same paint stick as your main color. This will help your colors blend nicely and there wont be any underlying tones that will fight against each other.

-When you've narrowed down your paint colors to a few choices, place the paint chips on different walls in the room you'll be painting to test how it looks in different light, whether artificial or natural light.

-An even better option is to buy a pint of a few of your favorites and paint test squares on your walls, or on a large pieces of thick paper. PLEASE wait until the paint has dried to make your final decision, as paint changes color as it dries.

-When you've done all these steps be patient and wait a few days to test the light during different times of day. If the room is empty feel free to bring in a few décor items and sit next to the wall color. This can really help the color come alive and help you get a good sense of how the room might look when completed.

-If your still not sure which color is best email me: Jessica@jessicaharrisinteriors.com I would love to help :)

Get the Look: Fixer Upper & Magnolia Home

Since I'm featuring The Magnolia Home Paint Collection this week I decided to show some of my favorite rooms from a recent episode of Fixer Upper.  In these photos you can see how the walls are light and neutral, but Joanna has brought in color through the kitchen island, hood, and the bedroom furniture. A perfect example of how you can bring those accent colors into your space without it feeling heavy and overwhelming.

Top 10: Magnolia Home Paint Colors

This week for my Top Ten I'm featuring the favorite paint colors of one of our favorite designer's Joanna Gaines from the HGTV show "Fixer Upper." There are actually 150 paint colors in the Magnolia Home Collection, but these are Joanna's top 25. I love how these colors feel so classy, simple,  and very authentic. Nothing to crazy or out of control, but real colors that most of us would actually put in our homes. We all know how the Farmhouse Style is key to the Fixer Upper brand, but these colors would like good in any home no matter what the style may be.
