happy anniversary

One year of wedded bliss. We skipped the traditional gift of paper and went straight to wood - a new dining table in walnut. Pretty excited because we can now host dinner parties for more than 2 people.

bedroom makeover

The walls are now silver fox aka gray and the bedding is a more masculine mix of stripes, tweed and herringbone. Headboard is charcoal wool and rug is pink floral to balance things out. Much more sophisticated (and calm).

A before and after project.

Decided that the bedroom could use something more... tried browns and yellows...

new armchairs

Not quite sure if we will keep these
new chairs. Cons: very tall backs and the color is a bit too gold. Pros: recliners are soooo comfy and the price was right. Will continued to "tweak" the room.

Ikea, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

60 riktig ogla curtain rings
1 tarnby rug
3 billy bookshelves
1 stenstorp island
and 1 ice cream cone!

slowly but surely

JJ hanging "window treatments" aka curtains. Mostly so the neighbors don't see that we are watching The Bachelorette (see tv screen in window reflection.)
