OH! Hello there!
It's just me....
your long lost blogger....
I feel like all I have been doing at the beginning of each post has been apologizing lately for not posting NEARLY frequently enough...
So this time I won't go into it too much.
I'll just give you the short version:
New job, bought house, in wedding, house stuff, another wedding, more house stuff.... and well, you get the picture, right?
So since my husband and I went today to pick out all of the finishes for our house scheduled to be built this November, I have (again) been thinking about design..
Since we have been keeping the upgrades to a minimum....and by minimum I mean we have almost NO upgrades that were not a bonus of some sort, it has been somewhat limiting as far as design goes.
If you are a follower of this blog then you already know that I have been pining after a Retro Red and Aqua Kitchen.
Since I won't be having aqua cabinets any time soon, I'm going to have to improvise. We picked a dark brown for the wood cabinets and a light unoffensive counter. we also chose a very dark stain for our hardwood throughout the main floor. (all woods have no red in them...)
So I figured I would be doing punches of red and aqua throughout the kitchen and therefor was thinking...
How am I going to make this make sense with the rest of the space?... Since it is a very open concept floor plan.
So I was browsing some design pics and came across an awesome combo..that is..
AQUA AND CHARTREUSE
I am suuuuper into this combo right now.
It looks fresh, it looks retro and best of all it is NOT beige.
So I figured I would share some of the awesome living rooms that I have come across on my search for inspiration.
I think both the aqua or the chartreuse green look fantastic on the walls...but I haven't decided if I am ballsy enough to do either....
The aqua is very fresh and cool...where as the aqua is daring and vibrant.
The above pic is a good example of a very subdues soft version of this colour combo...
I'm thinking it might be good to keep the walls fairly toned down so that I can add some statement pieces that have pops of colour... like the ottoman in the above pic or the chairs and curtains in the pic below...
I really only have discovered my love for this combo quite recently and haven't really figured how I'm going to work it out.
Perhaps soon enough down the line I will post pics of my living room all "worked out"!
for now I dream...and I wait.
and I share!
