New Home

I spent some time this morning looking at one of my recently married “friend’s” new home on facebook.  I say “friend” because I don’t think I’ve spoken to her for at least four years but that’s the beauty of being friends on facebook.  She and her husband decorated their new place with style.  For example, they painted beige stripes in their bathroom, which I loved, and turned their second bedroom into a gorgeous, navy office.  If money weren’t a concern, I would have opted for tiles or wallpaper in the bathroom, but painting stripes is a great and inexpensive way to add dimension to an otherwise boring room.  Here’s what i would change.  I noticed that she painted her bedroom green and put a few pieces of dark brown furniture in it.  That’s it.  I think I would have opted away from the colored paint, and instead have added a lively piece of artwork, perhaps a beautiful rug, and a deep hued, plush bench to the room.  I also would have changed the kitchen cabinets by painting them from a boring brown wood to a softer cream, à la Paula’s cabinets from Two Ellie.  But again, this is all assuming I have a legit job and money ain’t a thang.
