it's june!!!!

it's my favorite. well, it's tied with december.

june means two very important days:

my birthday!!!! (june 17)

AND

moving day!!!!! (june 15)

wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!


so you know how i was looking forward to arguing over paint colors with levi?

yeah, it wasn't an argument. it was surprisingly easy! (the only thing we are arguing about is having a desk - he wants one; i don't.)

{disclaimer on all paint colors - we will be testing them all first just to make sure, and they have, of course, scanned differently than the swatches we have.}

i really did make a strong case for painting the living room yellow, but levi wasn't having it, so we went with retro avocado:


we'll probably do the rest of the room in neutrals with pops of bright orange.

and for our bedroom, levi has some fancy, artsy plan that involves stripes and squiggles in anonymous, with a hint of dragon fruit:


the bedroom will, of course, feature my beautiful for like ever poster.

the kitchen isn't really paintable, but i want to do lemon and navy in there. 

and we have this weird, little wall that the dining room table will go against. it's kind of a small alcove in between the living room and bedroom. it's a very small wall. we're going to paint it too...just haven't decided what yet.

i love color!!

  1. I love color too! All my friends come over and make comments about how I must not be able to decide on one color so I pick them all. A colorful home is a happy home, or at least thats my motto. I mean how can you be sad surrounded by the rainbow? I can't wait to see how it turns out. I am excited for you guys!! yay! Happy June

    I'll be honest though. I kind of dread the day I have my own space to decorate. Blank slates are soooo intimidating to me!
