It all started with.... :)

This adorable old green chair.... I bought it at 
The Old Brick House Vintage Market that happens once a month
in downtown Mesa.
I walked in, saw it, and was immediately smitten:)
I mean come on! look at the color??
It HAD to be mine:)

Well after getting it home, I looked around and realized..
I really needed to balance out all this green.



I haven't been able to decide what exactly I wanted to do for curtains in 
the front room. I still had the oatmeal ones from the previous owner, and they
always gave me the worst case of the drabs:(


Then I remembered I had bought this Tatiana curtain panel at World Market
to show someone else for their house. Weeell, I hung it up and 
LOVED the way the blue worked so well with all my green!!
I might add a liner to them for thickness, but for now-
and for the price ($31.49 a panel!) they're working!!


Who knew I could love blue?? :)


I think it's just what all my green needed!!




I went over and raided Rio's pillow cover stash and brought
home the blue chevron and ikat prints:)

I KNOW what you're thinking....
how in the world do you see the TV over that crazy fern??
Haha!! Apparently not just my furniture is green, 
my thumb is too!! It's going to have to find a new home soon,
it spent the last few weeks on the floor while the
Olympics were on:)


I'm hoping to show you all the upstairs next week!

And after examining this pic, someone needs to clean 
some risers...!!
Man! I wish that someone was Little Bully....  :)

  2. I love the blue mixed with the green. When you think about it, those are the colours of the great outdoors- and they are very pretty :) The chair is to die for and looks so comfy!

    1. Also, how cool would it be to put a little pop of colour on those risers? I'm thinking it would camo the inevitable dirt ;)

  4. I really like those new curtains in your home. The blue and green look so good together. That combination reminds me of Miss Mustard Seed. She uses those colors together a lot too. Looking forward to seeing the upstairs!

  6. I have the same problem with our stairs showing way more dirt then I thought they would. I too wish the little pups and the cats could clean them up since most of the problem stems from them. Oh well! Green is a big color in our home too and I just can't seem to break myself from adding more. I love all your pops of green color!

  8. Love the blue! I'm looking for blue fabric to mix in with my green in the dining room. Haven't found my fabric yet, but you keep on inspiring me! I think the blue also brings out the shades of blue in all of your antique landscape prints. That chair is so feminine and perfect for your lovely home.

    Give Bully a hug from me!

  9. Let me know when you figure out how to get your dog to clean. Mine just wants to leave enough hair around the joint that I could knit a new dog!

  15. Wow! What a transformation those curtains made. I loved it before, but I feel like it all balances it out now! I'm like the reverse of your green obsession. I'm a blue girl, everything in my home is blue….to contrast it I often add green and a pops of gold. :)

  17. Love the curtains.....perfection. Your little bully is quite the adorable guy. I was wondering if you knew.....where did you find the bracket holding your stair rail? We were just talking about putting in new handrails (we live in a quad level home) since ours are the originals in the home.

  23. Wow- I have loved watching you transition into your new home. It's been fun to watch you arrive at the final product. It's perfection. Can you help me put the final touches on my home? Seriously (as my six year old would say) I'm not kidding. I'm being honest. In your free time are you doing anything like that?
