Loving on our true blue living!

Hi ya friends!

 LIFE and I had a little chat and it graciously allowed me just enough time to post our new blue living!

 But first, remember the yellow??

There was nothing wrong with the yellow.  I liked the yellow.  Sometimes, you just "know" it's asking to be changed.

 (please tell me you know what it is I'm talking about. I'm a bit mental, I do know this to be true...)

If you want to see more pictures of our yellow living space.. go here.

Go ahead... I'll wait.

♥ ♥ ♥

Drum roll please....

I L♥VE the feeling the blue produces! 

It's so open and airy... 

And pshhht,  who wouldn't want to live in a coastal atmosphere!

My paint color is Benjamin Moore Sea Salt.
Behr was running a buy 4 get one free, so I color matched. I used their all in one primer/paint and I don't think I'll ever use anything else!! It's amazing!


OH MY GOSH... I completely forgot to ask you...
How do you like the jute rug?!?!
We totally love it!


I like all my blue tone pillows, but I'm kinda missing the pink ones like they were in the yellow walled photos.  I have a sneaky feeling after this week, they'll all be back to pink hues!

Eventually I plan to wall paper the back of this armoire.
I just haven't decided in what color/pattern/texture.
(go figure)

side note... Turn all your lamps OFF when shooting pics!!
I kept this shot on here so you could see how big of a role lighting plays

The Front room...


You can find the "Be nice or Leave" project here.
 Everyone who leaves sees it and always gives a giggle ;)


I decided to paint the kitchen a shade darker.  I went with Copen Blue, also by Benjamin Moore and color matched with Behr all in one primer/paint.

How bout my curtains?!  Found the bottom half at Goodwill for $9.99 and I went to JoAnn's for the additional fabric to lengthen them, as well as the trim!  PERFECTLY matches!
They're totally NO-SEW!!!

One last look... then comment away!! I'd really love to hear what you think! :)
{but only if you like it}
