I haven’t had much to report lately, except that Dax is now crawling and on the move! And since he is on the move, he is crawling around and trying to put everything he can possibly find in his mouth. We’ve decided to start taking the carpet out of my home and put down laminate wood floors. I have always hated carpet, and all of the hair, dirt, dust, and just grossness it holds. It’s hard to clean, and even after vacuuming, it never feels clean to me. I’ve been wanting to rip it out of our 3 bedrooms since we moved in two years ago, and the time has finally come. The rest of the house has ceramic and laminate. I wanted bamboo floors, but since it was out of our price range, we decided on Swedish Maple, to contrast with the darker shade we have in the rest of the house. Chris and my brother are tapping in the planks as we speak.. Squeals!!!
We are starting on the master bedroom, and I’m finally going to decorate the space after the new floors are put in. Our bedroom has just been a collection of mismatched items that I’ve collected over the years (mostly purple), and the walls are a goldish color with a bit of green in it. I did some color coordinating on the Behr website, and we decided to use a turquoise/ aqua as our accent color.. I would have never thought of using that! But it looked really nice in the color smart app, so we’re going to give it a try. I bought a really nice black frame from Michael’s yesterday, and framed my ‘Persistence of Memory’ print. It has some aqua in it, so it’s going to make a great show. I have two other Dali prints framed in my living room, they are just so interesting! My best friend was kind enough to give me about 15 large prints that she had in a closet, and most of them were Dali. I couldn’t have been happier- I love his work!
I took some time to browse on Etsy for some throw pillows, since our bedspread is a white chenille, and I came up with some great options. I thought I’d show off a few:
Next is a pillow with aqua and lime swirls, fabulous! Made by abrakadabra.
