I am sure all of you are planning July 4th festivities and diying up a storm all things red, white, and blue.
I plan on sticking 2 small flags in my planters out front and calling it a day.
I have a hard enough time decorating for Christmas and that holiday season is about 3 weeks....much less getting it together for a one day event. I applaud all of you.
Yesterday I had a curtain install. After doing this for a "couple of years"...... normally it will be uneventful.
Oh no....not this time. Yes....I had all the correct hardware but there was one small "problema". They were about 12" too long.
What? How the hell did this happen. I was convinced that it was the fabricators fault. Of course right? Then I got back and we checked the measurements. "Dayum".
I never said math was my strong point. How did 110" get to be 123". Must have been drunk that day.....JK.
Let's not dwell on the negative.
If you follow me on instagram then you might have seen this plan.
This sweet client called me up when her kitchen was half painted because of doubts.
A nice beige/khaki was being applied to the walls in a kitchen with creamy/beige cabinets. Yawn.
Somehow I convinced her to paint the walls SW 7059 Unusual Gray.
Kind of silvery gray blue.......which keeps it from looking like a nursery. That can happen with blue sometimes right?
The plan at the top had not even been born yet.... but she had this painting that she really wanted to use.
You can see..... after the walls have been painted.
So...where do we go from here?
How about some pattern, a new table, rug and light fixture?
After painting [which is hard to see in this image], the blue helps to highlight all the brown wood trim much better than beige/khaki would.
How the dang hell do you take a picture into a window....if you have any tips.....I'm listening.
This fabric is Kravet/Hibiscus. I love how it pulls in the brown trim and the blue/gray walls. It has been a long time since I did something other than cream curtains but for a kitchen where there is not much softness I think adding a pattern is key.
Interesting wood top on the table.
We also tweaked the mudroom area a little.
More bad lighting....but we added the grasscloth wallpaper [see in the top picture] and painted the doors SW Urbane Bronze.
Had roman shades made out of this fabric
And added this awesome Dash and Albert rug.
Her husband painted the red chest....
And that's it for now......
Hope you all have a great 4th! It is going to be a HOT one here in the ATL. But....no complaining cause I hear it is "Guam hot" out west.
