I went to the movie with my hubsters this weekend, and I really liked it. We went to see Extraordinary Measures. It was inspiring. It made me think about my life, my kids, and of course…decorating. That is when you know you are OBSESSED with DECORATING. I go to a movie that has NOTHING to do with decorating, and that is where my brain automatically goes. I’m a nerd.
When we walked out of the movie theatre…the thing I couldn’t stop thinking about was the. most. SAWEEET. bar stools that were in the movie. If you go to the movie, watch for them. They are in their house in Seattle (where they move toward the end of the movie). They are in the kitchen. This picture is what they looked like: (pretty close)
I have a lot of people ask me where I come up with ideas. I get inspired by my every day life. For example, I get inspired by the buildings I drive by every day. I get inspired by the thank you cards that I see in the store. I get inspired by a friend’s outfit. I have a very visual brain.

Here is another collage that has inspired me lately.
I found this collage from http://odietamoblog.blogspot.com/

AND….guess what my HUBBY found me at Home Depot the other day? A $5.00 can of DARK GRAY RALPH LAUREN oops PAINT.
The winner is….GRAY! I will be accenting with yellow. I know, you may think I’m crazy. BUT, I bet you like it when it is done. Stay tuned.

    No, your not crazy. Gray will look awesome. My whole great room and sitting room is gray. It's light but I LOVE it!! My friends thought I was crazy too, but know they love it, and the accent wall in my room is a really dark bluish turquoise like color and it's awesome! You'll love it!

    I LOVE gray in any shade matched with any color. I'm sure it will be beautiful! I love your site BTW. I just found you from Shanty's thing a couple weeks ago.

    I saw that movie this weekend too and noticed the house decor as well :) I love those barstools. And I love your paint choice. I love your blog, I would have never thought gray and yellow go together but they do!! It will look awesome, I'm sure.

    Ooh! I'm so excited! What a score to get the gray paint in the oops section!!! I LOVE gray right now! Did you ever see that picture of gray and yellow that I was telling you about? I will e-mail it to you.

  5. The Yoder's Four says

    Yay for gray! That's what I voted for, too. How are you going to incorporate the yellow? I'm excited for the big reveal!

  6. says

    What room is this? Is there a lot of light in there? I think your ideas are FABULOUS- getting ready to send for a request for help in a few rooms- are there particular colors that are IN right now, or OUT??? Everything you do- turns out so cute!!!

    I dont think you are crazy! You are soooooo creative and I LOVE the yellow and gray but i am a little bias since my favorite color is yellow. I need to come visit you guys and see what new things you have done to your house!

    I thought I was the only one that noticed all the decorating in movies, glad to know I'm not alone :) My husband always thinks I'm crazy for noticing that stuff in movies.

    I just found your blog from Today's Creative Blog, and I can't believe I didn't know about you until today!! I love everything you do! I love bright colors, but tend to not do them as much as I would like.

    I LOVE the gray with yellow! I recently saw that color combination in a picture of a laundry room and I was instantly in love. I don't have any yellow in my house, and I plan to have those colors in my laundry room (the only room left to choose colors for).

    Thank you so much for all the wonderful advise/teaching you do on this blog. I will definately be here for a while today, and will keep coming back! I am 100% obsessed with thrift stores!! Your blog feels like home to me :)

    I can't wait to see your big reveal! I told my hubby awhile ago that I wanted to do our master gray and yellow and he's not sold on the idea. I really want to show him your room, because I'm sure it will be great!
