Me Oh My Oh

Hellooooo alll! Things have been MIGHTY busy around here. Setting up a house is a lot more time consuming than I ever imagined! Not to mention we also just moved buildings at my work, so there has been a lot of packing/unpacking/organizing/general chaos going on in my life right now. In fact right at this moment I am typing a post, throwing a ball for the dogs, and eating lunch all at once. Ok so that’s not quite the same thing but it seems I am always multitasking these days! Good thing I am the queen at it.

I have decided that our kitchen will be red and aqua/light blue. And perhaps with a touch of retro-kitch which red and aqua really lends itself to nicely.

Behold, my inspiration files:

What do you think? Will it look dated too quickly? Is red and aqua a fleeting once-again trend?

It’s a great combination. I always hesitate with colors for the same reason but if you’re feeling it, go for it!


ooh good choice. you’re more daring than me. i could only incorporate the red but in portions. i love the red cabinet look.
