white, aqua, red, fushia, yellow






I'm craving white and bright colors today. I'm sure it's being cooped up in the house and not running free outside. But our main floor has gotten a little, shall we say... brown. Brown walls, brown cabinets, brown floors, brown counter tops... you get the idea. I'm not sure how it happened, it's all the base pieces. The stuff that's hard to replace and costs money. So now I'm going through the house and pulling all my white, glass and silver pieces to place around the first floor. It is already looking cheery!

The project I really want to tackle is the basement. Painting furniture, bright fun vintage accessories. That's where I feel like my true style is going to come out. Kind of an electic beachhouse. Comfy furniture, whites with bright colors, distressed tables... you get the idea. I'm really itching to get down there and make changes. But there's this little problem. We need walls. ha ha ha! It's coming along tho. I have furniture pieces in place and soon as spring hits I'm dragging them outside to get a thorough spray painting (that is a verb now!). The main floor is more formal, but the basement is going to casual, homey, and fun. My "studio" is now set up down there. I use that term loosely. I have some cabinets and sewing table. But I'm calling it that because it's more fun.

I feel like changing everything up sometimes! The only problem for me is that I know we do not plan to stay in our current house forever. Its so hard to know where to draw the line! I love your blog by the way!
