So remember how I was debating what my next home improvement project should be and I was leaning towards remodeling the kitchen? Despite the excitement over the idea, after a few more days of thought I began to feel like I was getting ahead of myself. In order to do that remodel I would have to take out a loan. I am not exactly living paycheck to paycheck, but pretty near. Even one more monthly bill could create a problem. So… sigh… my big plans will have to wait.
Smaller, more manageable projects are now on the brain. I hope to get some drywall repaired, add a coat rack and mirror to my entryway, and do some sprucing up in my full bathroom. Once those things are tackled, I’m thinking I might do something with my living room. It’s the room I spend the most time in so I really should give it more attention.

Oh how expertly these neon colors have been woven into this room. Without them I wouldn’t care for it all. The home of Silje Aune Eriksen, styled by Kirsten Visdal, photographed by Trine Thorsen for Elle Decoration Norway, via my ideal home.
I am kind of enamored with this space. The tall bookcase really does a lot to ground the room and gives it a strong spot of color. Luxurious but livable. I dig it. The home of Isabel Lopez-Quesada, photographed by Simon Watson for Architectural Digest.
