color pop in kitchen

It’s no secret. My house is full of color. My last home was not… isn’t that strange? I guess it seems a little odd to me because going from tan walls and brown furnishings to really light blue walls and bright furnishings is like a complete 360! This home (which we’ve inhabited for 2 years this month), was begging to be lightened up. I couldn’t bear to be drab, and Sunset (that’s what we call our new home) was tired of her traditional, beige/earth tone look, she wanted some spice in her life! And that’s just what we’ve been giving her!

Sunset seemed to talk to me. Our new home wanted a change and just as we found her in our big change from San Diego to Flagstaff, I wanted the some change too… some color, some excitement, some fun surroundings…

That’s where we’ve gone, oh yes, to the next level. COLOR. Hooray! I. Love. Color. Give me more! Sunset is already full of color and I have so many more plans but best of all, I’ve never looked back and I couldn’t be happier with the design choices we’ve made.

It. Was. Meant. To. Be. And I know that moving here and into this house was all “meant to be”. It feels right, like the perfect pair of jeans.

Here is a peak at one of many colorful, fun pops of my favorite home color:

This is the range hood in our kitchen (obviously) and it’s a major focal point. I bought the hood for a mere $5 at Habitat for Humanity. It’s old and it’s loud but it’s got character and I totally love it! I brought it home, scrubbed it down (and I mean I really had to scrub) primed it and painted! TA-DO!! True love {swoon}.

And in case you haven’t seen… here is our lovely kitchen right after we moved in… {so brown}:

Really, it wasn’t terrible. BUT THOSE FLOORS!! Again! The same, lovely 80′s vinyl from the dog room. And so much BROWN. I felt like we were drowning in brown. Brown Cabinets. Brown counters. Brown paint. Brown Carpet.

As you can see (slightly) we have since painted the cabinets white, added some subway tile and if you look really hard, there are black counters. Big changes! Can’t wait to share all those with you too (soon, I promise).

And one more picture just because I can’t leave out how cool the range hood really is! Check out the retro sign on the front of the hood, {swoon}! I love it! Details, it’s all about the details!
