i love this photo! don't you just adore those blue cabinets with the blue wall? and could anything "pop" more than that black chandelier? might have to use this as inspiration for the chandelier that was given to me!

ahhh! more painted cabinets..this time, in a glossy green! so fresh, and i love it with the black and white striped wallpaper. i had a small entry way painted in black and white stripes at my old apartment, and i wish i had photos of it for you guys. 'twas before the blog days ;)

i found this last photo on a search for a client...

[not sure where this photo is from! sorry, it was a google image search...]

i love the way that nothing really screams "PAINTED FURNITURE" at you, but there are at least a few painted items in the mix. plus, you know i love those grey walls.

  1. That blue painted sideboard looks so great with the wood and the white. I love showing that painted furniture can look chic and expensive!

  3. I have lots of grey in my house:
    -A huge wall that runs down the entire length of my house
    -All the trim and doors

    And i HATED it so much until you posted something about grey walls looking nice. You see, mine was paired with a drab green and i felt like i lived in a cemetary, now it's paired with white. mmmm. Thanks for making me like my grey paint, you saved me tons of trouble and money!

  4. lenore - me too! that's the thing - i don't like when it looks cheap, like you are trying to cover up something, rather than have something that is chic and beautiful and unique!

    oleander- awesome! i'm so glad that you like your gray now - it sounds really cute! it's funny how your taste can totally change like that...i do it all the time :)

  5. I am so loving that last picture. If only I could find a set of those chairs on Craig's List for us to redo!
