Transformations on TV always look like a breeze … well, it took our kitchen guy almost 8 hours to put all the doors back on, aligned all the doors and drawers, drilled holes for the hardware, and installed these sleek, sophisticated knobs from ELTE. From plans to execution with a few magic tools, 8 hours friends!
While the boys were busy putting the kitchen back together (my task was to supervise), I had some time to think about what I want to do with these stools from Target. Aren't these stools just fab? Practically everyone has a pair of them (see Lindsay of Little House Blog and Erica of Moth Design). I actually quite like the original plum cotton/linen blend, but it probably won't work with the overall palette in the living room. So here are my two options: Geometric + Stripes OR Dots + Solid.
A preliminary survey on Instagram on Sunday suggests most people are digging les touches in black. It will work perfectly in the space but a part of me wants to bring something light-hearted and fresh in the room (must be the spring spirit), and that's why I kind of liking the lime green. Also wondering about the kelly green pipping with les touches … maybe I just need a different fabric as pipping.
With most rooms are under control at #ProjectChris, my mind has drifted to an untapped territory: balcony. Not too crazy about the red bricks … but can't do anything about that. What else is on Chris' must-have list? An electric BBQ and planters. These planters are my latest finds during my routine HomeSense tours on Fridays.
As for the BBQ, this one Chris inherited is looking a little sad. Since I have to work with the red bricks, I figure I better embrace this bossy feature instead of fighting it. This race car red handsome electric BBQ from the Home Depot may just be it!
I am also re-imagining this affordable stool with high style from HomeSense. For its complete transformation, you will just have to wait for a little longer.
I did get to enjoy the lovely spring weather and here are a few of my favourite moments:
Happy Monday friends! xoxo
