Renu Challenge Designer - Jamie Lott


Jamie Lott


I'm Jamie from Southern Revivals - a lifestyle and furniture design blog about having great style but spending less money. It's about second changes and saving the vintage, neglected and discarded. There’s just something about taking an old piece of furniture and giving it new life, giving it a second chance, that is so rewarding. Because it's nice to have a second chance even for furniture.

When designing a room inside your home, how does color inspire you?
"Ahhh color! Truthfully we've had a strained relationship, color and I. I just didn't know how to use it. I have always thought of myself as more of a "neutral" person but I have always had issue with how boring that made me sound. Then one day the clouds parted and the angels sang I realized color wasn't the problem at all and I'm not boring! I just love texture and pattern. As long as I have plenty of that adding color is like the cherry on top! These days when designing a room I always start with a color palette that I love. That palette can come from anywhere - artwork, bedding or even a toy. Now that I know myself better color doesn't intimidate me and I am free to not only love it as I always have but to you use it, too. "
