Okay. I have to confess why I've been avoiding the kitchen. It's all in the name of kitsch, so we're cool.
For longer than I care to admit, I've had issues with my 'angry red' kitchen & living space. It has been leaving a bitter taste in my mouth and oft my attitude reflects it. I have no one to blame but myself, as I chose this grouchy color when we moved to [humor me, please] suburbia over 5 years ago. So, I took it as a sign to remake-over our digs when I happened upon a pair of the most amazing wall hangings straight outta the 60s at my favorite flea market in town.Who wouldn't be inspired by these pretty partridges? So This week we've got a pretty cool painter friend helping us with the highs and lows of priming and painting over our living space with a deeper shade of the mushroom-y putty color in the partridge pic & we're taking the light turquoise into the kitchen. I love the shag orange color, too, so last night I painted it over the dull grey tile around our fireplace.
I'm also going to frame a few technicolor cookbook picts. Right now, I've got some retro lobster cookbooks framed. But they're angry red, too - so I'm going back to my bungalow roots with new art in the old frames.
I can't wait to share -- so hang in there! As soon as the partridge family comes to nest on our walls, I'll show them off.
