After travels my to Maine on Kezar Lake, I must confess that incorporating the color palette for our home design from this “Visual Journey” was a tricky one.
The loon has 2 colors black and white, and the design on the bird’s back is like that of a checkerboard. So, I decided to think outside the box for our 3 levels of design. I hope this brings inspiration and ideas on how to incorporate this look into your home.
Level 1 – As you know by now, Level 1 is usually a renovation project. I thought about how the black and white checkerboard might really provide a bold look in your kitchen. Let’s get back to the 50’s with a modern look and add flooring that makes a BIG statement. Image 1 is a clean look while Image 2 incorporates soft wood tones.
For Level 2 – Let’s pull in a rug into one of your spaces and give it a face lift!
Level 3 – If you already have a lake house and want to add a memory from this “Visual Journey” consider a Loon Decoy. These can be purchased from local artisans or at antique shops. Be prepared to pay a high price for the antique ones, but this is a quality piece that can bring back many happy memories. Enjoy!
Happy Decorating! Stay tuned for my next blog. Salida, Colorado
