Before We Shop --
Remember the Boldly Hip Living Room,
Posted Last Week? You Can See it Here.
A pillow and a painting in that living room served to inspire the peachy coral color
of the homeowner's dining room.
It's a nice move when you walk from one room to another and feel like you're still in the same house. Even if each room evokes its own personality, it's a good point to have a connecting element. In this case, it's a peachy coral color that provides some continuity in rooms designed by Julie Dodson.
In a room that's strong in browns and tans, Julie added splashes of a color in the living room that assumes more prominence in the dining room. A look at the peachy coral accents -- the throw pillow and abstract painting -- in the living area:
Another look at the dining room:

-- first, a personal note
Dear Love Where You Live Visitors,
A LITTLE HISTORY: I began this blog a couple of years ago as an offshoot of my work -- as
a field editor for Meredith Publishing and the owner of a home furnishing boutique. When economic conditions forced us to close the shop, I still wanted to continue the blog -- for the enjoyment and because of newly made friendships.
TODAY'S EVENTS: My daughter, Kate -- a beautiful young woman with a talented techie touch -- recently introduced me to affiliate marketing.
Since a considerable amount of time goes into making this blog interesting (at least that is the hope), inspirational and educational, we thought if we could make a few dollars doing it, that would be a nice bonus.
YOUR HELP PLEASE: In our decision to become shop affiliates, we also wanted to share any monetary rewards with a worthy organization.
There are so many. But, the Alzheimer's Association seemed to be an especially important one. The devastation of losing your memory and abilities to do everyday tasks both saddens and frightens me. And I know the people affected feel the same way. The alarming truth is that the number of people being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease is growing. We would like to contribute to the research to reverse or control this horrible and unimaginable illness. We would appreciate your help.
PLEASE BOOKMARK our Shopping Page, which we will continue to expand. As a gift to you, we look for and alert you to discounts that certainly make shopping more fun and affordable.
