I’ve been on an aqua kick for the past several years and I’ve used it liberally throughout my house. It’s such a fresh, restful color, and I can’t get enough of it. I tend to use it in rooms where I like to relax and unwind, like my family room and bedroom.

Here are a few pictures of my family room. The wall color is Forget Me Not by Benjamin Moore Paints. The ceiling color is Windmill Wings, also by Benjamin Moore. The seagrass couch and ottoman are from Pottery Barn. The indoor/outdoor rug is from Ballard Designs. The wicker chairs are from Pier1 Imports. The entertainment center, bookcases, coffee table, and end tables are from JCPenny. The blue and green vases are from Crate and Barrel. The mirror above the fireplace is an old church window that I bought at an antique store and had fitted with mirrors. I liked the old, chipped paint so I left it undisturbed. Come to think of it, that mirror may be the only thing that I haven’t taken a paint brush to. Well, there’s always tomorrow.

Coming up tomorrow on the tour–my aqua bedroom.
