the house that owns us

My mom always said, that you never own a house, it always owns you. I never really gave it much thought, but we are now living proof of it.

Last week it was new sod and backyard landscaping and this week I am seeing red.

This is where I left Bryan earlier today and went up to take a nap. Taping and prepping the kitchen to make my day. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the khaki color that is in the majority of the house. I HATE HATE HATE the yellow in the kitchen. Yuck. It has always looked to me like the previous owners just messed up. The colors weren’t different enough to look intentional. I also LOVE accent walls, so when I woke up, I walked into this…

I am absolutely thrilled with it! We still need to paint the other 3 dining/kitchen walls to math the rest of the house, but I just can’t get over how much impact that one wall makes.

Dare I say that in a few more weeks, we should be completely done with the inside AND outside of the house?

  1. I love it too. It’s a great contrast!!!

    Btw, are you naturally a minimalist? If so, I love minimalist design! I am soooo not into clutter! I try to keep clutter down as much as possible (of course, it’s hard to control it sometimes–if you have any tips about throwing things away and maintaining a clutter-free space, I’d love to hear them).

Thoughts?
