Peacock Blue Dining room!

Hi guys....

Much has happened since the last time we chatted. I've actually picked a paint color and painted a room....well a rather long accent wall actually. (Which is kind of a big deal-- considering how indecisive I can be with paint color.)

About 3 months ago I made a sketch of what I wanted the dining room to "do" color-wise. I wanted blue, oranges, reds, and browns. I think I finally made that happen! This still a work in progress though.

The new color on the walls is Behr: Peacock blue. 

Right now, I'm holding/borrowing this orange vintage shelving unit for a friend. Apparently, it used to have drawers, but I think this is a much cool way to use this unit. It may house my growing mug obsession collection for the time being. You may also see a few pieces that look familiar, like the recently thrifted Mid century modern valet chair and the wall ornament/tray.

Also not pictured are the new yellow curtains and curtain rod that I purchased from Goodwill. For those of you who don't know, cute curtain rods can be sooo expensive! Luckily, the one I found at Goodwill was $6 and had those curtain clips so you don't have to go through the whole "string-the-curtain activity," which is almost as fun as the "fold-the-fitted-sheet activity."

Another recent decorative purchase was this brand-new shower curtain (with hooks from GW). I love stripes and other linear patterns that are black and white, so I had to buy this $4 shower curtain from Value Village when I spotted it.

I'm looking forward to painting the bathroom soon.  I know you can't see the whole curtain but, It's kind of beachy, but also ethnic print-y. What colors (or patterns) do you think would complement the black and white design that I started with?


  1. - an autumn orange (see outfit with madden boots).
    - gold--or better yet a deep yellow.
    - some type of purple (Hmmm; though this may not mesh so well with the countertops and cabinetry).

    1. OOo.. I think orange would look nice...something sorta cinnamon-y or rusty. I think we have a winner. It's funny because thats the second time you've kinda guessed around what my first idea was. You know same thing with the Dining room, brought me back to my first choice. lol. Purple might be nice as well because its kinda cherry-ish wood.

  2. ah! I'm loving that shade of blue! You have some of the neatest furniture/interior design, love it!

  3. Thanks! Its sooo blue right? Like your awesome hair!<3
