I'm back from Phoenix, AZ where I helped a friend move into her new apartment over the weekend.
As in most rental apts, the apt was a series of off-whites and tans from floor to ceiling. My friend had also ordered a brown couch and oversized chair for her new living room. To avoid being swept up in beige overload, we needed to bring in textures and patterns fast!

Originally thinking browns, purples and blues, the color palette in this pillow struck our eye.

The neutrals seemed to work with the space, without feeling too masculine. Later in the day we saw this room in the Crate & Barrel catalog which had a similar feel.

Once we had the color scheme down it was only a matter of designing around it. Not wanting to spend a lot of money, we stocked up at Crate & Barrel, Target and Ikea on low cost items with great design.

Stayed tuned tomorrow to see the final design...
