Think pink

My overall plan with the new digs was to concentrate on making the big pieces neutral and throwing in pops of color. As in, say, light gray walls and white furnishings with an orange chevron pillow. But then I couldn’t stand the way the kitchen was looking at me anymore, so this happened.

And I’m so glad it did. From there, it was really a short hop on over to this.

And another view (please excuse the plastic in the foreground and Molly’s step-stool-y thing in the background, as well as any other extraneous stuff that makes the shot less than ideal).

So, a very pink rug has landed in our dining room and I think I can say pretty confidently that we’re all really pleased with it.* And I can also say that my overall plan is still mostly intact. Light gray walls, white and gray furniture. And pops of color. My pops of color just got a little bit bigger, that’s all.

And someday I’ll be able to replace all of those dining room chairs with these lovelies and things will be more streamlined.

*And thanks to Mags for the tip on the sale at rugsusa.com where we scored this beauty for just over $200.
