GUEST BLOGGING AND A WEEKEND RECAP

Hi everyone! This post is full of a lot of stuf so bare with me:-) First off, I'm Guest Blogging on Chic Modern Vintage so please go over and tell Tonia Hello!

I hope that you had a great weekend especially all of the mothers out there! I had a great weekend. I didn't finish every project I had planned, but I was able to enjoy my view while a prepared a scrumptious dinner (if I must say so myself!).





While downstairs priming the body of my dresser on Saturday,



I got to thinking about my living room


And how I want it to look similar to this

I remember when I first saw this picture. I was at Dayka's house while she was doing my hair for my Birthday (Thanks again girl!). And between looking up at some shows on HGTV, I was flipping through the June/2008 issue of House Beautiful (that image was the cover). Anywho back to the point, I like the pops of color in the room. And have been trying to figure out a way to incorporate a bold color for my living room.

While I was letting the primer dry on the dresser, I was trying to decide if I really wanted to paint the dresser Heirloom White, or give it a pop of color. Then I thought about my other dresser and how I wanted to change the color of it. I can already hear you guys saying WHAT! What do you mean change the color of that dresser?! Don't worry... This little beauty is taking its place!


I think it will be the perfect start to adding color! Maybe some of this fabric for pillows

OR what about this ikat frabic for window treatment?!


I don't know... What are your thoughts?

By the way, thanks for all of the great comments on the independance post!

I think it will look great down there, esp. with the fabrics you've selected.

Thanks for the shout, & hope you had a great Mother's Day.

I love both those fabric choices and think that however you decorate your living room, it will be gorge. Happy Mother's day (belated).

Put me on the list for someone wanting more color throughout the house and especially her living room. I am thinking of blue, based on two boxes I have.

I think your living room already looks a lot like your inspiration pic. Very nice. Can't wait to see more.

Love the first fabric choice but I must ask... what is the name of the color on your living room wall? love. love. love it.

A girl is entitled to change her mind! I love the idea of that orange ikat on the windows. Whatever you do will look great.
