Capitol Avenue

Hello! Today we're re-visiting Indianapolis to add some color and style to a renovated Cape Cod.

Even though this room is staged, I'm taking that color and style cue from the painting above.

I like this energized room.  It reminds me a little of Sarah Richardson's design for Sarah's House 2, only with a zestier color palette and curvier lines. That rug is gorgeous.  I wonder if it was the room's inspiration piece, because Angie did a great job pulling the room around it.

Sarah's room.  See what I mean?
The dining room has a nice sunny bay window.

We'll bring in the colors from the living room, but mix them up:

{Better Homes and Gardens}

Pretty drapes, and again, lots of white to balance all the color.

The listing only shows one of the 3 bedrooms, but it's a cutie.

We can't let downstairs have all the color fun, can we?  (Anyone else see the creepy clown face in that painting?)

Speaking of downstairs, the basement provides a great hang-out room:

I like this design for a more casual, fun space that would definitely brighten up a basement.
That wraps up this house tour.  Hope you enjoyed it, and sorry about the creepy clown comment. :)
Thanks for reading!

  1. Looks like you have some wonderful ideas! Love the colors. :)

    1. Thanks, Liz! I enjoyed looking for rooms with those fun pops of orange.

  2. What amazing images and especially love the bedroom you found - so similar to the actual one! Happy Thursday!

    1. Thanks, Kristy! I liked how the orange in the bedroom gave it a fresh look, but seemed really easy to change to a different accent color in the future. Happy Thursday to you, as well!

  3. Vicki,

    That rug in the living room is gorgeous. I do like the room Sarah Richards did that is similar. The Tracery Interiors room is pretty with the colorful pillows and neutral background. Oh, and yes, I see that creepy clown in that may be hidden, but as a non-clown fan, I wouldn't want it in my bedroom!

    1. Ha ha- I had to show that picture to my family, to make sure I wasn't the only one seeing a face in that picture. Glad to know you see it too. Other than that, it's a nice room. :)
