Casual weekend outfits from this past weekend! My husband and I spent the weekend painting and eating :)
I don't know how I mange to fall for this every time, but whenever my husband says "let's go look at paint swatches for the xxx room" this is not-so-secret code for "we're redoing xxx room this weekend"; it's how our powder room, entry, kitchen, upstairs hallways, and living room all changed colors! Our living room had been painted in cream, with white trim, and a sage green accent wall for almost a year now. My entry is also done in the same cream with white trim, and the white tile grout is navy. I LOVE the cream, hubby hates it.
So when he said "let's go look at paint swatches for the living room" I thought, maybe this time, he just means swatches. Nope. Needless to say, after a weekend of work the room is now in hubby-selected-Aida-approved-with-not-so-minor-skepticism colors of greenish-gray, white trim, and much-rosier-than-expected-purple accent wall. AND he added a pretty white trim and did one wall half purple as well. Fancy!
It's a bit girlier than what we were hoping for, so we'll probably change the purple soon (good bedroom colors, though) but the vibe and colors do fit perfectly with our French country home style. We left the wall leading to the entry cream, the fire place brick/couches are also cream, all the wood is black, and the artwork in the room is a moody turquoise. I was very amused to realize once we'd finished that the color scheme is really quite complicated (gray, purple, white, cream, black, turquoise, and touches of brown). Even though I didn't pick the colors, I am in charge of making sure everything "goes" and that color complexity seems appropriate for me doesn't it? ;)
Oh yes, the clothes! Super casual was the order of the weekend. These were all worn to home improvement stores and food places, and definitely NOT worn to paint in. #1 is Saturday, #2 is Sunday, and #3 is a bonus of the newly painted living room (this room is a white balance NIGHTMARE).
