Here are some dishes I found at Ikea. The blue-ish one is called gray but it has a definite aqua cast. They look nice with the other vases I bought. The pillow on the left is new too. The brown stripe is very close to the sofa we liked. The painting is just one of mine that has the soft desert colors I am aiming for.

A little concerned about durability of this material. If a light pine armoire is "inherited" for the living room, this would tie the color of the pine into the DR.

This is a slightly rustic table from Cost Plus that I think may look great in the dining room. Also has a leaf to seat six. Graceful, but still chunky.

The vases are glazed ceramic in aquas and greens. Plus an aluminum one from my collection. I love these thick silvery pieces! A little bit of sparkle in the balls, plus different woods and textures of fabrics.

First Blogged Project

Here is our first blogged project!  I am working on a townhouse for a couple who plan to use the property as a second home.  The budget is currently being set, and decisions are being made about what needs to be remodeled immediately, what can wait, and what can be worked with.  This property is in a GREAT location and has long term potential for the couple (B & S) as a full time home, should circumstances change.  I am still learning about the blogging process, but hope to be able to post ideas and options as I shop for the home. This will be shared with the new homeowners, who may share with friends and family.  We all look forward to your input too.
