Adding Pops of Blue and Green, Late Winter Decor

Decorating a Cabin with Blue, Green, and Neutrals

I’m ready for a change, how about you? It’s those months between Christmas and spring that seem to drag on and I’m never quite sure how to decorate to carry it through. I decided to let the décor be and maybe I’d get a fresh idea while I cleaned out my home décor overflow room.

By the way today is the Cozy Living groups blog round up hosted by Jennifer from Town-n-Country Living. She put this together for us as a way to share with you other inspirational monthly ideas. You can see them all in the thumbnails below.

What do you know while I was cleaning, sorting, and dusting I came a cross four tablecloths that I’d picked up for $12 each at a place called Ollie’s a long time ago that I never did a thing with.

I’m a sucker for anything checked so I’m sure that’s what attracted me at the time, and lets face it were can you get that much fabric for $12. I’m no longer using my rectangle farmhouse table in the dining room so the tablecloths were of no use. Instead I decided to use them as curtains in the living room.

I pulled them out of the package and put them up, I didn’t even go to the bother of hemming them to the correct size, I just folded over the top and I figured with time the wrinkles would hang out, and they did.

Now the place was looking a little livelier again. I love the cabin decorated in black and white but I was in desperate need of a cheering up so I went with blue and green for a pick me up.

I found a blue enamelware bowl in my stash and plopped a plant in it and added some blue paint to an old chair I’d cut down to make into a stool/plant stand. A couple of blue and green throw pillows and I was done.

The cabin now feels fresh and new again and the pretty colors have done wonders for my mood. My entire inspiration came from my tiny watercolor painting I did recently and a tablecloth.

I guess getting up the ambition to clean out that room yielding some pretty good finds. I do have to say I reduced my décor stash by half, and was happy to help a teen give her newly decorated bedroom a new look with the things I weeded out. I also decorated a friend’s tiny guest cabin and the small box of stuff I had left was donated to our local hospice store.

It was good for my soul to see others be able to use some of the things and I know the donated pieces will be sold and the money used for a good cause.

  1. Love the blue and green combo, Dawn! The curtains add a nice pop of color and I like the way they look next to your front door. Doesn’t it feel good to get rid of extra stuff? I need to do some purging of things in our storage unit but am waiting for warmer weather. 🙂

  2. Blue and green are the perfect pop of colour this time of year! LOVE those pretty curtains!

  3. Absolutely love how you created those curtains. The blue and white looks so serene against the wood paneling. I also love your little watercolor painting xx

  4. Blue and green are always a great combination and love how it looks in your home. Great job

  5. You definitely have the “knack” !!

  6. I LOVE the blue and green combo, I remember as a girl I was always told, you never combine blue with green, I always thought that was the most ridiculous “rule”. And your gorgeous cabin with the blue and green really put that silliness to bed! I find your tablecloth curtains so very clever, I think I would have bought them too, so lovely!

  7. I love that idea of ‘instant’ drapery panels…especially when they look that cute!

  8. Debbie Lorson says:

    Looks amazing…..such a pick me up. I am so sorry about your grandmother. Always loved reading about your adventures with her. <3

  9. Such a great idea to use tablecloths as your curtain panels! I, too, live in a log home and have found it so difficult to find curtain solutions that really fit the aesthetic of a cabin. The way your folded over the tablecloths and used clip on rings looks just right! Thanks for sharing :o)
