Welcome to the 141st Metamorphosis Monday!
Happy Met Monday! Hope your weekend has been grand!
Do you have a room in your home that you love to change up and transform with the seasons? Kristy, a talented Interior Designer who lives on the West Coast of Florida with her husband and two daughters, enjoys transforming her living room to reflect the changing of the seasons and holidays. Kristy’s home, Starfish Cottage, is decorated in a style she describes as “laid-back coastal cottage.”
Kristy shared a few pics with me recently showing the transformation of her living room beginning in early spring going into late summer. Let’s take the tour!
In early spring, Kristy gives her living room a fresh, springtime look!
Kristy said, “Starfish Cottage is a reflection of all the things we love in our life: family, friends, Florida, fishing, fabulous food, fun music, and our FAITH in God. More specifically, our cottage is filled with seashells, slipcovers and seagrass rugs; as well as antiques, vintage finds, candles and natural accents. I loosely describe my style as “French Country Coastal” (if there is such a thing) and one of my FAVORITE things to do is update our home decor seasonally.”
I really like how Kristy incorporates a touch of coastal into each design.
When Independence Day arrives, Kristy brings out the Red, White and Blue!
Kristy shared, “My furniture and furnishings are mostly neutral, and I like switching out pillow covers and accessories for new looks.”
This is a fabulous look for transitioning from late summer to early fall. Love the soft, neutral colors contrasting against the white.
Kristy said, “Re-decorating” is easy for me because all of my major furnishings are neutral- white, black, khaki or brown. I simply change out my pillow covers and tabletop accessories to give my home a fresh new look. I have a large collection of decorative pillow covers and accessories that I have collected over the years and enjoy playing around with new color schemes. I also try to put a “coastal” spin on each season’s decor.”
The transformations of Kristy’s living room above, beautifully demonstrates how a simple change in the pillows and accessories can easily and inexpensively transform the look and feel of any room.
Be sure to stop by Starfish Cottage in the next few weeks to see what Kristy has planned for fall. I know it will be wonderful! You can see more of Kristy’s talent and wonderful design at Kristy Seibert Designs.
