Views from our new little home that gets AMAZING sun. Since B and I have moved in a little over three weeks ago, we have organized, arranged, rearranged, planted, painted and purged all of our masses of STUFF. But of course the most fun part of any new home is arranging all the new little vignettes across the place, like this one on the bar.
Throughout the course of all of our apartments, I've only painted once - and it was a subtle purplish gray in our bedroom. The color was literally called "Subtle Touch." This time around as soon as we moved in I was determined to painting at least SOMETHING other than just the bedroom. So now, the bedroom is Subtle Touch with an accent wall of Mammoth Mountain and our little dining room / bar area has a solid accent color of Mammoth Mountain, as well.
As much as I love simplicity and clean Scandinavian lines, I have been loving living with color. It's been five years of living with BB and five years of trendy asylum white apartments. Now, we LIVE in COLOR. The theme of this new home is "Natural History Museum" which my sister-in-law made a hilarious joke about stocking brochures throughout the place when she heard it. Just think: dark woods, himalayan salt lamps, dictionaries that serve nothing more than decorative purpose, lots of plants, a big red Persian rug and a mid-century modern chair that only came into my possession after my grandfather lost the battle of keeping it at either my aunt's or mom's homes. (They both hate that chair.)
Is there a better winter hibernation project than redecorating the home? I dare you to find me one. I have a few hibernation essentials, that I've made of course. Check 'em out here.
