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 where we scored this beauty for just over $200.

    As pretty in the picture as it was in person! (Me being the person while the rug and walls were not…just to be clear).

A girl and her dog. 
#love #yinyang How many pictures of a sleeping kid is too many? 😬 It’s just that they’re so calming to me. And her hands just kill me. Which seems contradictory now that I write that. #letmerethinkthis Watching horses who are watching kids who are changing the 🌎 #nationalwalkoutday #madison #madisonwi She’s hates color, pattern, and picking out her own clothes. #kidding #myheart #inspired #miniboden #catandjack #tryingtodistractmyselfforonesecondfrom #pa18 This. Sleeping like this. “Minions 3,” as she calls it, won the family Friday film night election and then left her zonked out. (I voted for #nattygann). Public service announcement: don’t see a movie with this one if she’s already seen it. She reveals every spoiler. And then some. #minions #despicableme3 #familymovienight
