once i pared things down to orange + blue in the kitchen, which was quick + easy, i moved to the back entryway and rearranged some things there on the fly, and for free, to suit my new distaste for that earthy color of yore. i nabbed some random cards that i thought looked sweet + eclectic together, and that remind me of special people in our lives, and set those on the locker shelves. i jumped the junk drawer like white on rice for some freebie pens + additional ephemera of the orange/aqua/blue/pink variety. and i switched out our rug for a cheapie pier one number in tiffany blue, that i'd been storing away for a while.
then i hit the living room. green throw pillows, be gone! vases, best ye hide! we are doing it simple and we are doing it yellow. yellow + grey + black + white. totally trendy but totally my favorite color palette of the moment.
tinsel time! my only christmas-y decorations that have come out to play so far.
and for the new simplified color scheme, i opted for a b + w image of six-months-prego-moi shot by the hubs on vacation last january.
another free kohl's pillow! mmmmm pleatinggggggg. nice work, wang!
so those are our tweener color schemes for the main living area, which tie in well to the sunroom, and i'm sure i'll be giving a christmas shakedown soon too. shakedown as in lots of deets + pics of my 2010 decorations, not shakedown as in holding our tree over your head and dousing you with torrents of needles. BECAUSE OUR TREE WILL BE REAL. THAT YOU CAN COUNT ON. sticky sap, pricked fingertips, and weeks of guilt over forgetting to water that 10" triangular thing in the corner. yup. the whole bit!
