My Living Room Gets A POP Of Color!

You might recall that I am afraid of color love a shades of white color scheme. I've been known to shake it up here and there...like the time I went wild with these gray pillows.
I borrowed 5 colorful pieces from my favorite local shop, Checkered Moon. I moved these pieces from my bedroom, to the sunroom and back to the living room. The living room is where the most people would be the most shocked by my bold color additions! 
These items were in my house for three hours and no less than five friends and family members asked if I had a) been drinking or b) robbed Checkered Moon. I'm happy to report that I am not a thief.
Take a lookiloo:


I must admit that I LOVE THESE PIECES! 
If you are married to me, know that Checkered Moon gift wraps.

  2. Looks great and no commitment because it is just accessories.

    1. That's right! Accessories have a lot of bang for the buck, huh?

  3. Haha! That's great! I too love white but everytime someone asks me what color I'm going to paint something my son pipes in with "White, I'm e sure." What does he know? I had to branch out just to prove him wrong. The sunny yellows look fantastic against all that white, I might add!

  11. The pillows are wonderful, but the lamp is PERFECT! It's hard for me to believe you are a white girl. I think you are just closeted.

  12. VERY fun accessories! One time a decorator came to my house to accessorize and brought WAY more items than I had told her I had a budget for but she insisted that I "live" with all the pieces for a few days. I was terrified that someone would spill or ruin some of the things that I knew I could not keep before I got them back to her. Those "pop-y" pieces from Checkered Moon are really cute.

      So...did you keep said items or send back?

  19. Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm
    a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!
