This was one of those pictures that stopped me in my tracks. Designed by Jessica Buckley Interiors, the intensity and depth of the blue grasscloth wallpaper is captivating. It’s called Blueberry by Phillip Jefferies. I’m making note of this for my next house. Next to the couch, that’s the best wow factor of the room. But then, I’m biased because I’m drawn to everything blue. I do have to say though that I love how the soft vintage pinks of the chairs adds a calm elegance to the room and adds a sense of history right next to the fireplace. The rug is another key factor to this room. While it’s still strong in colors, it’s not saturated like the walls and couch yet it still manages to add color and fun to the room and tie it all in. The glass coffee table keeps it light and its gold frame adds glamor (You can never go wrong with glamor. After all, we all want a little bit of it in our life. This is where we can get it.)
You know what the best part about summer is? The sun staying out longer with us.
It makes me feel happier and more productive to have these long days, like I have more hours in a day. One of these productive moments is getting our outdoor space together. We’ve been getting in the mood to host a few parties soon, but even the best abled-body needs somewhere to sit. At least in the patio area to start because when the sun starts going down, those killer mosquitos starts coming out for a meal or ten, sending us running for the screened in porch.
It’s been way too long since I’ve been back on here, blogging. Sorry about the disappearance, like MIA kind of disappearance. So much for keeping my New Year’s intentions of blogging twice a week. I’m to figure out a routine to get back on track. It’s a little tricky when I’m trying to housebreak Kali. Keeping her in the living room is best where as she has way too much stuff she could get into in the office. The best solution? Getting a laptop. That’s some portable stuff right there. However, a few things on WordPress looks different, so I’m going to need to get my husband to give me a little tutorial.
I might be a little late trying to jump on the bandwagon about Greenery, the color of the year, but better late than never!
I was not surprised when they announced a shade of green as color of the year. Green has been rising in popularity and it was particularly noticeable to me the more I saw a variety of green shades in kitchens recently.
When I get obsessed with something, I get rather obsessed about it and there’s nothing I love more than a good vignette. I’m always re-arranging mine until I’m satisfied. Sometimes I’m at it for a couple of days. In case you’re not familiar with the term, a vignette is a grouping of items artfully arranged- a snapshot of your life. A vignette gives away the little details about you and your life, so it’s pretty important what you decide to put on display. After all, a home reflects who you are, whether it’s as an individual or as a family.
