switch up

I love seeing photos of the same room decorated different ways.  It always gives me ideas on how spaces can be used and decorated, depending on the needs of the person living there. 

I came across these rooms done by the talented Samantha Pynn and I just love all the rooms, done both ways.  It's so hard to pick just one or the other.

See for yourself










OK, so maybe I do have favorites out of the two.  Which looks are your favorites?

Question:  Do you style rooms differently depending on the season?

No, but this is a fabulous idea! The question is...where am I going to store all of my seasonal decos?! Love the photos!

Love this!! I definitely have favorites, but they are all really GOOD. If I could get my rooms looking 1/2 that stylish, I'd be one happy gal!

I style my dining room differently depending on the season, it's not a room that's use often so it works!

I love living room #1 on this, it's gorgeous!

She is a styling genius! I can't get over the vanity top and how different it looks with a black and a white mirror (and the placement).

Love those 2 bright blue garden stools being used in lieu of a coffee table! Genius!

Sundresses and Smiles said...

Oh how cool!! My favorite is the the living room with the zebra art and blue garden stools!

Oh yah I do have my favorites. In theory I would style my room differently depending the season but can barely even finish any project I begin at this point.

P.S. - I gave you a shout out over on Camila's IN YOUR SHOES feature...yep you inspired me:-)

Definitely the first pic of the breakfast area - the yellow, graphic fabric on the chairs is infinitely better. Then, the table vignette - when there's a pink lampshade involved, is there really any question? ;)

I can't choose favorites either! I absolutely change things up/move things around in my house depending on the season.

You should check out Samantha Pynn's youtube channel that I recently found. I think I spotted some of the same items in her videos that are in these pictures. - http://www.youtube.com/user/SamanthaPynn
