Welcome to the Sytsma Home
The inspiration for this room came from the large poppy print which she found for a steal! I was so jealous. Robin's egg blue was chosen for the walls & ceilings to bring out that same color that is in the background writing on the floral print. It also gave a subtle tone amidst the denim sofa and chair. Merideth has carried the black shelf and the red shelf to every apartment she's ever lived in. They've been a multitude of colors. But they look cool no matter what room we put them in. She's also carried this milk crate (shown below) around for years. We hung it as a shelf above the striped chair that she bought off Craig's list.
Although the Tv is as wide as the table underneath, she wouldn't part with the table. It was her grandmothers' and it too has been painted every color imaginable. It still has the original hardware. Old suitcases were used to house the DVD player and to hide the cords. The little white chair was found on the side of the road begging to be rescued.
Here's another shelf that we placed in the dining room. She received some very neat pictures and accessories for wedding presents that worked out perfectly in the grouping.
Be watching for her master bedroom. It's green, black, white, and red!
