Blue and Green infused Family Room Plans

I'm not officially ready to say I'm over the neutral look but I can say with confidence that I'm excited about letting some blues and greens sneak into the family room.  One of the reasons I wanted to keep the paneling in here white was to keep that fresh and bright look.  But paired with our white slip covered sofas, white linen drapes, white fireplace, and tan, white and gray pillows I was beginning to feel like it was missing something.  I'm not really into the whole "pop of color" school of design so my plan involves just layering in a few pieces to make this room feel more complete and tie in with the rest of our home.

You could definitely call this beach chic or California Cool and I'd be happily take on that label right here in the middle of Virginia.  I prefer fresh and bright twists on traditional and color that's not in your face.  I think this achieves that perfectly.  If you look closely, alot of these elements are actually pretty timeless on there own. 

I bought this art print for myself over a year ago and I'm finally having it framed.  I'm going with a white mat and thin white frame.  I'm going to be using our existing wooden console but painting it white.  It's from Target eons ago and it's the perfect size so no need to look for something else.  I don't really have room on the wall I'm working with for this ghost chair but the price it's too fabulous and such a good price I may have to make it work anyway,
