I am in love….with turquoise!
I’m still working on the post with all of the pictures (before/during/after) of my floor replacement. I especially want to brag on my awesome brothers and I just don’t have that done yet. But….. I do want to show you one of my after photos:
and show you the direction in which I am heading. I have recently become enthralled with the color turquoise. After my floor was finished I had my friend, Kellie, come to my house and give me some suggestions on paint colors, etc. Kellie used to work in the interior design field and I knew she would have some great ideas. She honed in on two items I have in my house–one some vintage seed packets that I adore, and the other a quilt my mom made me when I was about 12 that has been my bedspread all these years. As we walked around the house and talked and I showed her things I liked and explained some things I didn’t like, we came to the conclusion that I really like a retro-cottage style. So….here is a sample of the direction I am likely headed in the kitchen. I also have some pretty happy ideas about the rest of the house as well. And you know me — that means extending the cottage feel out into the garden. It is going to be colorful, a bit whimsical, and most-of-all, very representative of me!
What do you think?
