So awhile back I had mentioned a few things I wanted to do around the house. I was getting kinda bored with the colors and wanted to change it up. Here is a look back at what I was thinking.
This past weekend I made a trip to Ikea to pick up the grey rug and a few other goodies. I just love the flower and color. (kinda loving grey can ya tell). I wanted to revamp the living room as well and with the budget being a bit tight I thought back to the colors I loved on my CB2 mood board and ran with it. At the same time the curtains in the dining area had t0 go as well, they didn’t match anymore. Crisp white would do the trick! I love how easy IKEA curtains are to hem , this how I spent my Tuesday night.
1st to go up were the kitchen ones, love how much brighter and lighter the area is now!
Now I have to redo my home tour images…yay??
Ok onward to the living room!! Here is a look at what the old colors looked like. Still love but just kinda over it.
So like I was saying I took the colors I loved from CB2 and ran with them.
Woot love the apple green in there. The hubs seemed a bit unsure about it when he came home but he’ll get use to it! this weekend I’m going to find a new home for the super cute rug!
I’m a fan of window shopping, and by that I mean searching the web for deals. Almost everyday I hit up my local Craiglist to see what’s out there. Here are some of the find in or around my area!

I get lovely emails from West Elm, CB2 and Crate and Barrel all the time. Telling me about sales and new items, and making me wish I was loaded to buy everything they all make! Today CB2 hit me up with their latest sales items and it got me thinking. What would it look like to do a quick redo of my living room. Keep the bones but change colors of pillow rug and curtains.
