Let's just get to the point. I hate my living room
It's not me at all. AT ALL!!!! For some time now, I've been longing for a lighter space infused with color. You know, like the rooms below
Those are the types of spaces that speak to me. But instead, I'm surrounded by this
I have tried lightening the space with throw pillows and such
But no luck with changing the way I feel about the room. It's just too much darkness going on. It's funny because I was in love with this color 3 years ago. Now??? I'm ready for us to part ways.
So yesterday I started testing out paint samples
I'm pretty set on the top right sample which is Wheat Bread by Behr paint at Home Depot. Can't wait to get started on this project. It's not going to take place until next week sometime because I'm gearing up for a five year olds birthday party:)
I'll keep you posted on the progress!

Just in case you forgot how they looked before, here's the reminder
I'm totally in love and so happy that I went with the fur!
What are your thoughts? Love it or hate it?
Linking up to DIY Showoff''s "DIY PARTY"!
Last week on one of my thrift store visits, I came across some black metal chairs. I loved the look of them, but didn't know where I'd use them and figured it would be best to just leave them. Fast forward to when was headed to bed and realized I HAD TO HAVE THEM! My mind was racing with thoughts on what to do with them, but I could not figure out WHERE to use them. Well, the minute I woke up, I knew that they would be perfect for my work room! I high tailed it back to the store so fast lol!
Here they are in their rough state
At only $2 each, why would I have left them there in the first place??? After getting them home, I couldn't wait to test out their scale in the room and see if they were everything I imagined they would be.
My plans are to clean them up (because they are REALLY dirty), and find some fur type fabric to upholster them with. Can you imagine them with some type of furry white fabric? Oh I can! In fact, fur came to mind the first time I saw them:-)
I'll never forget my first introduction to Lilly Pulitzer (the brand). It was during my trip to New York for BlogFest.
From the moment I stepped foot into the showroom that showcased her fabric/home collection, I was smitten. I am always drawn to people who love color as much as I do. People that go against the grain with their business ventures. I guess because I try to do the same.
And who would have thought that it all started with juice? Rest in Peace Lilly. An inspiration of mine for sure. I'll always remember my first time.
After looking over my inspiration for my office, my jewelry, my wardrobe, etc., I've noticed that I'm quite taken by neon pink! Actually, it's neon pink mixed with any other vibrant color. Maybe it's because of the warmer temps? At any rate, it's making an appearance in my office first. I'm actually finishing up the dresser today and I'm running out to grab an expedit bookcase from IKEA to replace the other shelves (more on that later!).
Have you noticed yourself leaning towards brighter colors lately? If so, what color(s)?
