I ended up buying the Michelle Armas print and I can’t wait until it gets here! I’m excited to add some much needed color and texture to the walls!
What art are you digging lately? Abstract? Landscapes? Typography? If you have any other suggestions for great art, please share!
It’s amazing what a difference a simple shower curtain can make. We got this camouflage-like shower curtain for our wedding. I really liked it but it’s been four years, and as you can see by the lovely shade of yellow on the walls, it made the small room look even more yellow. By the way, this yellow color used to be the color of the kitchen too! Not my favorite. Since we are just renting, I am less than enthusiastic about painting the bathroom, so we are leaving it as is, yellow and all. Here’s the before…
And here’s the after. Much better, no? See how just having the gray pattern tones down the yellow? Makes it much more manageable. Plus, I do love the yellow/gray/white color story these days.
That’s it! A quick and simple fix to change the whole look of our bathroom. How often do you switch up shower curtains? Have you made any quick (and cheap) fixes lately that make a huge difference?
One downside is that the laundry is also in the kitchen. But at least we have a washer and dryer and at least they are new and don’t take up a lot of space!
– Make some no sew roman shades for the window
– Get a new rug with some color and pattern
I also painted the kitchen back in December – it used to be yellow ala our bathroom (more on that coming soon). The gray is much much better. Since we are renting, there’s not much more I want to or really can do.
Do you like your kitchen? What’s one thing you would change about your kitchen? What’s your favorite part (I really like having the window to the back yard and the white cabinets!). Do tell!
They had a ton of great light fixtures, but I especially liked this little geometric guy.
Salt n’ pepper shakers are the one thing that I collect and I loved these little owl guys!
Loved this minty kitchenware.
I’m obsessed with stripes. Enough said.
This rug would look really good in my kitchen. I’m also obsessed with navy.
Navy + stripes! Whhhhhaaat?! The perfect combo all wrapped up in this little toothbrush cup.
Loved this navy jewelry box with gold detail.
This dresser is fantastic with the detail on the drawers.
You know how I feel about distressed wood. This headboard is awesome. And also $1,300.
This pillow case was calling my name! But, I think I’m going to attempt to knit something very similar this fall. Stay tuned…
I also got this guy (the turtle on the left). Apparently I was on a mission for animals. And they’re all male. He’s so cute and white and perfect! He’s currently residing on a stack of navy vintage books on the mantle!
Those were my West Elm finds. What have you find lately?
Straight on, our kitchen to the right.
And from the dining room/kitchen. There. I think you’ve seen it from every angle possible.
For Christmas, my mom got me these sweet vintage thermos’ (thermosi?). They came in this red plaid bag and I love them! OK, so I haven’t actually used either thermos yet, but they sure do look good up there.
The shelves were only $12, but I guess I did spend as much on these glass canisters (also from IKEA) so we could stylishly store our grains. $12 shelves, $12 storage.
