When designing for clients, I often run across products that I really like, however are not appropriate for the project I am working on. I end up saving the item and often forgetting about it. In an effort to show off the cool things that I find, and give you some interior design ideas, I decided to create a series of blog posts just for fun called "Fun Design Friday". Today I am going to showcase my first design that I created named "Shades of Blue Living Room". I hope to publish a blog post with a new design every Friday. If you appreciate the design ideas, make sure to subscribe to receive blog updates via email (see the gray box on the right of the screen).

The main focal point of this living room design is the rug. The rug adds a bold color to the living room to break up all of the blue.
All of the shades of blue are found in the artwork, which is a contemporary version of a landscape.
The rich wall color adds drama to the room.
Patterned pillows repeat the color in the rug and add another dimension of texture.
The chrome chandelier, floor lamp, and end table add a modern sparkle to traditional furniture.
Greenery is added to the room through the floor plant and table topiary. I always suggest to choose live plants over faux plants when decorating a home. If you prefer faux plants, make sure to spend a little extra money to get plants that look more realistic.
The rustic candlesticks, comfy throw blanket, and patterned classic books add warmth and character to the living room design.
