Have you ever seen Kelly Rae's colorful Seattle farmhouse on Apartment Therapy? You can read the interview and see more photos here. It's truly wonderful. Even if it is too colorful for your taste, there is some inspiration to be shared here, that adding whimsical touches of vintage linens, or other treasures can add a spot of character anywhere.
Kelly Rae Roberts is an artist with a book called Taking Flight as well, whose home truly reflects her creative spirit. Her use of bright colors is softened by their reustic distressing and natural colors.
The floors are a light wood, soft colored walls with crisp white trim, soft air filtering white curtains, lots of white painted furniture and natural greenery makes the space look comfortable and eclectic without feeling cartoon-y. She has a perfect blend of whimsical touchs and vintage collections like her wall letter, alarm clocks, globes, suitcases, tins, floral linens, frames... I adore her use of quirky furniture elements like her wonderful blue church pew. What a fun treasure!
