PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!
You can now find me at
I teased you yesterday with my new kitchen/nook wall color.
It's a Martha Stewart shade from Home Depot called Brown Alpaca, iffn' you wondered.
The previous color was by Devine Paints called Reflection, and oh how I adore that color.
So much that I painted not only my kitchen,
but my master bedroom (which doesn't look like this anymore),
and living room with it.
Since I don't want to tire of it (and I was beginning to),
I figured one of those rooms needed to be adorned in a warm toasty brown.
It made the most sense to do the kitchen because it opens to my family room
which houses the big brown sectional.
That's the reasoning I used anyway.
Besides I just painted the living room, and I've already picked a different color for the master.
(Hazel Woods by Ralph Lauren, this is not my bathroom, btw)
Anyway, I'd actually painted the kitchen a deep taupe previously.
(this is right after we moved in, hense paint swatches every which where, no covers on the outlets, etc.
Weird faces I can't be responsible for.)
But the shade was too grey-ish.
Don't shoot me, but I can't abide grey or putty at all in my house.
I know that's sacrilege in blogland, but grey is just kinda blah to me.
And WAAAAY too trendy.
No offense to those who love it of course.
Fiddle dee dee.
Here we go:
(doesn't Bogart the Big Black Dog look key-oot?)
I added in chocolate brown fallishness.
My wee hutch fallified.
All the shades of beige, cream, and brown make me swoony in the fall.
Mini plastic punkins spraypainted white in an apothecary jar
and mini cloches sit under another cloche. LOVE.
Ironstone pitcher from my gramma's collection. LOVE.
I have a plan for the big back wall behind the table where the huge peg shelf hung,
which entails these two big vintage windows.
So there ya go.
Fallishness and new paint.
A great way to distract one from the gloomy, cold rainy fall here in NE Indiana.
PS. Sorry for the poor quality photos lately.
I hope to remedy that in the near future.
