Since we LOVE our readers so much, Amanda, Emi and I thought it would be fun to let our readers ask us some questions. Several friends have mentioned needing quick advice on paint colors, arranging open shelving, the best height for an upholstered headboard, to slip cover or not to slip cover, etc. So…the ball is in your court. Fire away. We are ready. There is not a silly question, so bring ‘em on. Throw some pictures in there too if you want. This should be fun.
While y’all are thinking, I thought I might throw in some of the things I LOVE since that’s what Valentine’s day is all about.
Where to begin??
To keep this from getting out of control, I’ll attempt to keep this relevant to interiors…otherwise I will get off on things like spring time, dark chocolate, a super sweet baby girl named Cates, great wine, answered prayers, surprise lunch dates with the hubs, finding a great pair of pants that are actually long enough, fabulous employees, etc. I’ll stop there. Is there much better than Valentine’s day?!
Things I love at the moment…(I change my mind often)
LOVE finding a space I would never put together for myself but totally appreciate and really like. A recent favorite is this cozy little nook. I am obsessed with this coral color!! When it comes to my own house, I am totally non color committal. I’m too frugal minded to put such a commitment to color in such a large space. Regardless, I love this. I adore the print on the drapery, fabulous mix of mod and classic with the great table, always need a great animal print and love it on these chairs, white hides are a must, love the antlers on the wall… this is a wonderful mix of young and traditional. Seriously want to live there.
This is totally unlike me too, but I love the punch of color on these chests of drawers. The details on the bottom of the chevron piece and the delicate white lines on the orange piece make them come to life. Anyone can slap a coat of paint on a piece…paying attention to the details is a different story. I love the major punch of color this offers…certainly a conversation piece in a room.
Obsessed with this one too. I’m starting to work on Cates’s big girl room. Not that I plan to put her in there anytime soon… I love the height of the bed and the tape detail, the subtle pink, the tufting in the headboard, the embroidered pillow and even the houndstooth. Those who know me well enough know I’ve come a long way with the color pink for Cates. I’ll update on the big girl room when it actually starts.
Enough about what I love. Can’t wait to hear about what you love!
Hope everyone has a lovely Valentine’s day.
