PCC is back!
One of the things I hear a lot from people about updating their home is that they just DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START. They know they want to update or change a space but have no idea where to dive in or how to even figure out a direction. I KNOW. It can be daunting. There are so many choices and paint colors and styles and gorgeous rooms on Pinterest!! And let’s not even talk about all the beautiful spaces we see on Instagram, gah.
Art that speaks to your soul is a fantastic place to begin a design for a room; a piece that you come back to time and again and linger over.
This photograph, Blue Venice by Irene Suchocki has that allure for me. I have loved it for so long. Mark and I went to Venice many years ago, and this photo captures that ethereal time of evening when the lights start to come on, the pace slows down a bit, and everything feels magical.

Imagine how soft yet striking this piece would be in a foyer, with a table or dresser painted this gorgeous hue.
hazy blue-green + sandy neutrals + gold
Blue Venice photograph by Irene Suchocki | round mirror | grasscloth wallpaper | wool rug | ceiling light | wall sconces
FYI my art obsession comes in sizes that would fit an Ikea frame!
SAVE on this 27″x27″ round mirror (currently less than $50 from our favorite big red bullseye).
SPLURGE on this stunner! Currently 25%, still a splurge but a gorgeous one.
You can’t go wrong with a neutral wool rug, or for a more affordable and very durable option a bound seagrass would bring some delicious texture to this space (I have them in my living room, dining room and on the stairs!)
A bit of grasscloth (or a good faux grasscloth like this one!) is a subtle but pretty detail too. It’s especially great if you’re looking to hide imperfect walls in an older home. I don’t think I’ll ever get over grasscloth.
Can you imagine this soft background with Hidden Magic front and center?
I wish I had someplace to use this pretty color! Can I talk you into using it???
Hope you are enjoying summertime and sunshine my sweets! Thanks so much for stopping by.
