Design Board - Amanda's Living Room

Amanda recently purchased a great retro home from the 1960's. She contacted me for some design ideas. She told me that she liked turquoise and orange. I love that color scheme and felt it fit her home really well.

I think it would be neat to have a wall of bookcases in Amanda's living room. She could find some vintage wallpaper or fabric to place in the back of them! I would also suggest painting the fireplace a bright white so that it would stand out more.

I hope these pictures below also inspire Amanda! I featured this photo on the design board! I love the star burst style mirrors on the wall! They really create a great focal point...

This turquoise and orange themed kitchen is amazing!

I think a collection of starburst mirrors {new and vintage} would make a cool focal point on a wall! Also, a silver floor lamp like the one pictured below gives any room a "retro" vibe...

I love this white room with its beautiful white egg chair. This room is a good example of vintage and new decor used together.
