I don't even know why. I'm a renter, and I grew up in a house that had pink carpets, wood panneling, ducks on the wallpaper (and actual ducks on the wall) so it's not like I've had exposure to people who care about interior design and/or house-flipping strategies.
But now! A magic portal of design and nesting possibilities has opened! We painted our livingroom walls a warm, dramatic shade of red. Our bathroom is a pleasantly cool shade of green, and I'm going to be handpainting asian wood graphics on both. Before you ask, the answer is yes. I will be posting pictures when it's finished.
I'm in love with slate tiles. I'm intrigued by green building, and I want bamboo shades. I lust after stainless steel kitchen appliances and cleverly hidden storage nooks. I feel like I don't have enough variety in my bed linens. I want my wood to match, and we just got a new shower curtain to match our rugs and wall color... and I'm starting to daydream of coordinated accessories.
What happened to me? Where did this come from? I'm so not Suzie Homemaker.
