Envy: White Walls

When we first moved into our house five years ago, we went a little crazy with the paint colors (think every shade of puke imaginable). Eventually, we toned it down to more neutral tones except for the dark accent wall in our living room. And last weekend we painted the lime green office to a more liveable shade of gray. Overall, I feel okay about the colors, but when I see homes of fabulous bloggers like Made by Girl, I desperately want white walls again. Why did I ever find white unappealing? Do you think I’ll be able to convince the Husband to help me repaint the house?

His Royal Highness

I haven’t done much in the way of posting photos of my home and it’s because I’m currently not in love with it. I have a lot of changes to make and the real thing doesn’t look nearly as good as what’s in my head, but I couldn’t resist showing you this photo of my fur child Dexter. He obviously thinks he’s royalty and I often find him perched on that couch like its his throne. This is why I can’t get a white couch.

Pratt or Parsons?

We just sold our humongo desk — another giant husband-related purchase we made years ago before I knew any better — so I’m searching for a replacement. I want something streamlined and these both fit the bill. I’m more partial to the Parsons. What do you think?
