Just Some Fun Stuff

OK, so I finally did it. I have managed to stay awake after I got home from taking Chloe to school- I made a really big cup of coffee (thanks for the mug mom)- but I'm awake. I haven't done devotions yet but I will. I like being up when the house is quiet. I'm sorry for those of you with early risers. Anyway, I was reading my new Southern Living a couple of days ago and saw the cutest kitchen ever and thought I'd share it with you. You can find the whole article here. I'm not crazy about what they did with their living room but maybe you'll like it.
I don't know if I'd be gutsy enough to do this but isn't it fun? I love color, I think I get it from my dad. My mom has always (and I mean always) preferred browns and deep, rich colors while my dad prefers bright, bold in your face color. Now that I think about it, I love them all so I guess I get it from them. I was telling someone the other day that I think I'm design schizophrenic because I love almost everything and I could having a bit of nearly every style in my house. Except Queen Anne, I don't like that at all. I love the red island, I love the green cabinets, love the subway tile...Love the yellow cabinet with the coral chair...The only thing I'm not crazy about is this shade of orange on the built in desk. I'm not sure why. Maybe if it was coral like the chair...


So I hope you enjoyed this little mini-tour. Kudos to the home owners for going so big and bold. I think that in order to do something like this you'd have to be sure that you were going to stay in this house for a *long* time because of resale and such. Again, I'm not sure if I'd have the guts to do it and I get bored with colors pretty quickly because I always want to try another new color that I haven't used yet. Wouldn't a nice shade of green look good in my kitchen? I don't think I'll repaint again but I have thought about it.

That *is* bold! Wowee....I'm not sure if even I am brave enough for all those colors :)
Enjoy your morning time in the quiet. I have always wished for that as part of my routine.

I like it. The bold colors are bright and cheerful and would make me want to cook really bright meals. I don't care for the rug or the lamp and some of the other accessories, I'm too conservative on that stuff. But I love the way the tie everything together.

I actually love the rug- probably because I'm from FL.

I really like this kitchen! It's so colorful and fun and cheerful. They were bold, but it definitely works - and I'm becoming a fan of the white subway tiles, too. If you had those, you could be constantly changing out all of the other colors. ;) lol I'm like you - I need change frequently. I love this kitchen, though! Have a great weekend~

While I like it, I would never jump into something that bold. Even if I never planned on moving( and didn't worry about re-sale), it would just be too much of a commitment to color! Truly, I think I could commit to colored bottom cabinets or all one color- but the different colored "stations"... too much!
