"Get The Look" By A Design Darling

So thrilled to have the design darling Mackenzie here today.  You surely know her from her blog, if not from Rue Magazine.  She's helping us get a great look today, featuring two of my favorite colors!  Take it away Mack!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi there! I'm Mackenzie from Design Darling and I'm excited to be filling in for Chassity while she takes New York by storm. Those who have read my "about" page know my favorite color combination is navy blue and hot pink — and I couldn't resist the temptation to share it with you today!
This space from the pages of Style at Home takes my breath away: the linen-esque wall covering, the bright white wainscoting, the chic navy sofa, the crisp white piping, the hot pink throw... Literally I would move in this instant and not change a thing. Thankfully I'll settle for recreating the look in my own home with some of these pieces:


I love the contrast of vintage-inspired ceramics and more modern elements like the graphic and ikat throw pillows. You could easily get the look for less by reupholstering an old sofa or a Craigslist find in navy velvet and giving an existing side table a fresh coat of paint. What do we think?!

Love the look Mackenzie!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and visiting all of my amazing readers!  XO

That really is such a *yummy* color combo...I'm pretty sure I like just about anything with bright pink (c: Mackenzie is a super fabulous girl and already love her blog! I'm thinking I need to find a place for that striped vase and trina turk pillow at my place...
