Hello there ladies of blogland and fine people of the world wide web. Long time no see! Things are finally getting back to normal here and I have a thousand projects to get finished before Thanksgiving. Yes, me having a thousand projects on my mind is normal around here. I made Thanksgiving my deadline because I like to make our household extra chaotic, and so come December the kiddos and I can decorate for Christmas in a project free cottage – free from paint swatches and rollers and magazine snippings scattered about.
While I’ve been home with my daughter for the past couple of weeks staring at our interior day after day, the things that have been bugging me here at this little 1930s hodge podge cottage started to bug me just a little more. I think that happens when you’re stuck indoors focusing on those things that haven’t been making your heart sing day after day, all day long. Ya know! The next thing I knew I had come up with a game plan to tackle this little cottage in a way that is ridiculously overambitious, and it’s going to take some serious commitment and a lot of me mumbling under my breath, “you can do it!” I’ve started in the kitchen with a coat of light silvery-blue paint on the walls to compliment the taupe cabinets–the entire kitchen was taupe before. I happen to love taupe, but our kitchen doesn’t get a ton of natural light so I wanted to lighten it up and add some contrast. I’m thinking of swapping out the cabinet doors under the sink with a little curtain. But right now I really can’t add anything to my to do list.
No matter where I chuck these blue pillows and throw, I always end up loving how they look so I’m adding in more of this color throughout the cottage along with other colors that look good with this soft blue.
I’ve already finished up a few more projects and I have a few ready to go. At the moment I’m taking Miss Paisley out for a walk in the bitter cold morning air. Nothing Like a blast of cold fresh air and numb fingertips to get the creative juices going! Catch you later alligator!
