Room for Reflection

One of our most visited outdoor living spaces on MyHomeIdeas.com is the retreat room from Southern Living’s 2009 Idea House in Georgia. A blue, brown, and ivory color scheme creates a serene space perfect for reflection, relaxing, or an afternoon snooze. Casual elegance at its finest: A neutral animal print on winged chairs, a textured sea grass rug and a simple glass-top table create a cozy, comfortable niche envied by many of our readers.
