1st up: curtains
Before: Long graphic green and brown curtains that drug the ground. Violet kept getting hung up in them!
After: Simple panels on tension rods within the window frame. It really cleans up the room and shows off the nice large windows. fabric: amy butler banana cotton
2nd up: fireplace art rearrange
Before: Mr. Einstein sat on my fireplace in front of a simple yellow canvas. unfortunately, Violet broke the glass on Einstein, so it was time for a rearrange.
After: I painted a canvas with chalkboard paint and drew this pretty flower design, inspired by Nama Rococo's "Serious Bokay".
Oh, and Mr. Einstein got a new come and a new painted frame! He is such a saucy little man with that green frame, isn't he?
3rd: framed postcards
I found these awesome green 4x6 frames at target, only $5.00 for 4! So I hung a trio of AshleyG postcards! Oh happy day!
4th: new chaise (ish) lounge
5th: new table!

So, what do you think? I know my house has a lot of bright, saturated color, but it truly makes me happy. I have tried for a long while to change my taste, to make it more "mature" and approachable. But, I have found I actually can LOVE my home if I decorate it true to myself.
Thanks so much for reading! I really never know how to respond to comments, but I love getting them! Should I write thanks on commentor's blogs or comment on my own posts? I never know what is appropriate! Regardless, thanks for brightening my day by simply being here!
