Front door style

by Shelly

Our front door needs a pick me up! Can you guess what color I’m considering?

Brown Design Inc.

Here is our door currently. I KNOW it looks pretty blue in the picture, but in person it appears more dark gray/brown.  For some reason the camera really brings out the blue more.
And here are the colors I’m considering…
BM Buxton Blue HC-149
BM Jamestown Blue HC-148
BM Newburyport Blue HC-155
BM Mozart Blue 1665
Which one would you choose?

Fall Color

by Shelly

When I picked the kiddo up from preschool yesterday she proudly handed me her latest Picasco-esque painting done in all orange. She exclaimed happily upon doing so, “Mommy I like orange, do you like orange? Orange is the best color. What color do you like? I like Orange!”. I of course started cracking up!
Orange was never even ON my radar until I met my husband in 02′. It was one of his favs and it ended up being one of our wedding colors too. Obviously now, it’s hot and I love it! Orange is everywhere! Have you thought about using it in your home? It can be incorporated with other colors to really give a look that POPS!
Crisp orange paint against white wainscotting. And those black framed pretty!

Turquoise and orange. Can’t go wrong with that color combo!

Queen of color..Tobi Fairley! Love those side tables.

Unexpected pairing…eggplant and orange! via Hilary Thomas

Lovely home items in orange that have been on my radar lately. Any of these pieces would help infuse this warm comforting color into your homes’ palette!

Stay tuned for updates on her home…but for now check out the first change to her dining room here!

Yuck City…aka My Office

by Shelly

We’ve now been in our home exactly one year and Lord knows we still have a TON of projects around this place.  But since we decided to buy a much bigger home (with a much bigger $ tag)…AND with the economy still creeping along, but not necessarily getting that much better…well we just have had to pace ourselves.  But seriously, my office….  IS DISGUSTING! What, you don’t believe me? Here you go..
Yes, that is a METAL cafe chair I am using as a desk chair. My back hates me!  The desk is a hand me down from my husbands’ office that wasn’t needed. For the most part…Ikea desks…not a fan. AT ALL. The A and the M metal letters on the wall are what’s left of the DREAM that was on the wall. Piles of magazines, my kids’ drawing board…yeah I need to clean it up!
The other side of the room (as if that’s any better).  The computer armoire has now been sold…thank God! After exactly ONE YEAR trying to get rid of the thing on Craigslist, I finally sold it last weekend.  A few more bucks in my pocket= more $$ to spend on the office redo! 
Ah yes, then there’s the closet. Lovely eh?  I do love my redone turquoise file cabinet.  This was another leftover from the hubby’s office.  It was metal, boring, and in need of a serious dose of PEP!  I never showed the “after” on that project.  Well, here it is!  
So, now that I’ve completed embarrassed myself and showed you my dirty little secret, I need your input, help, thoughts… so that I can finally, once and for all finish my office!
Here are some rooms that I am inspired by….
Celerie Kembles’ home office
via Domino??
Here is what I’m thinking about doing to the room…


or maybe…
I’ve got some other ideas floating around my head, but these are my two more solid ideas.  Now off to nurse a three year old with a bad ear infection. Hope your Monday is going a bit better than mine is!
