Ever since I've ever dreamt of my own kitchen, that kitchen I envisioned has been red. Well, let me tell you, on Hill Ridge Drive, dreams come true! Look at my wonderful red kitchen!! I absolutely love it. Love, love, love it! And I think it looks great with all of our recent Craigslist purchases of black appliances. Also, our red, white, and black fat chef decor is right at home. Oh, I couldn't possibly be any happier with a kitchen, ever. Maybe it'll even inspire me to cook a little! (I said maybe and a little. Don't get crazy.)
We, again, went with gold for the dining room. But this time, we toned down the yellow-ness of it a bit to make it more of a subtle, neutral gold, so as to not compete too heavily with the bold red wall that the dining room shares with the kitchen. We already have three black valances from our old dining room that we'll put on all of the windows, which will hopefully tie the two colors together. And we're planning on putting a tall plant in the corner to hopefully soften the hard line where the different shades meet. But I really like it. Brad and I are both happy with the way that it all turned out. (And it's a very easy transition from the living room color to the dining room color, which is great.)
I adore the blue that Kris helped us pick out to match our bathroom decor. It's a warm enough color that it makes the bathroom feel cozy, but still cool enough that it doesn't make it feel too small. We've also installed a bronze light fixture above the mirror (thank you, again, Craigslist), but I haven't taken a picture since then, so you can't see it. Sorry. For now, just enjoy the pretty hue.
And if you're wondering what Chester has been up to while we've been doing all of this painting...
He lazily lounges around while we work our rear ends off. And he's just spoiled enough that we'll bring the leather ottoman (the furniture he is allowed to get on) into the room where we're working, so he can still feel included. I mean, we wouldn't want to put him out at all, now would we?
