Another quick way to add a different pop of color is by changing up the artwork or pillows. Below, I added the two chevron accent pillows from Wayfair accompanied by inexpensive canvas art. I can't decide if I like the pillows in the floor basket or the hanging baskets.
When I decorated our pool house, I tried to keep it simple by using three main colors: white, blue, and brown in all different shades. The base of the room (walls, floors, and drapes) is white. The blues are found in the table, top of the walls, and artwork. I love varying shades of brown, which can be found in the mirror, driftwood, wooden bowl, and sisal basket. The fourth color, yellow, is still in the warm brown color family.
To create a classic cottage look, I cut plywood into 6-inch wide planks (below)
, nailed them to the wall, and painted them Benjamin Moore's white dove OC-17. Be sure to check out the tutorial of how I did this
using a 25 cents and a couple hours of time.
I am in love with this wall! But there are so many treatments you can add to a wall. If wood isn't your thing, how about wallpaper on an accent wall or a simple chair rail? If you aren't comfortable adding a chair rail, paint one! Don't be afraid to hang baskets on the wall. They are super easy to hang with a nail and look fun and decorative.
