I feel like I’m going through a home-style transformation. When we first got married, I was all about black, silver, and red. Crisp and modern.
Over the past few years, I’m definitely morphed into a “brown” kind of girl – there is brown in every room in my house, along with golds, reds, creams, and greens (although our bedroom is soft blue and brown). It’s warm, but I think I’m getting ready for a change. Maybe it’s the fact that I have a very active, growing son – my house just feels like it could be infused with a little more color.
I know that I’m personally not brave enough to paint my cabinets turquoise, but I love the concept – it’s a bold, fresh kitchen that still looks homey. I love it!
So here’s my dilemma:
I have this great white desk (which I’m planning on keeping white at this moment),
And a cool vintage chair to go with it:
Abby had commented in my last post about how great these two would go together, and she read my mind exactly.
I just can’t figure out what color to paint the chair! Do I go with a nice, shiny black? Crisp and classic? Do I stain it a nice deep brown? Or do I go with paint – a soft green or a soft blue – or maybe even a soft red? If I go with color, it has to be soft enough to blend in with my current decor, since I don’t have the money to change everything in my house at once.
So, any thoughts? I will take any and all suggestions! :)
