Light Fantastic

When I was working on my office, I had to get my mind out of the heavily-brown-star-studded Texas country way of decorating and think of lighter, brighter things. Now I'm no designer, mind you. Heck, I've barely got ahold of my own personal interior aesthetic. But I did know that I wanted something a wee bit different than what's in the rest of my house, a tad bit on the whiter side, but still with a touch of, well, me.

By the way, I'm not leading up to another grand reveal. You can see how my whole office turned out right here! However, I do want to share some of the photos I found when looking for creamy, dreamy interiors. Oh, and my, um, recently proclaimed obsession with turquoise might have led me a tiny bit astray on those last two pics. Sorry. But they were too purty not to post. 



 



Isn't that all-white kitchen just magical? I'd love to cook in there, but at the same time I'd be a little concerned about splattering spaghetti sauce or wayward guacamole. Suppose that might be why my kitchen is so far from white. I'd even share a photo with ya right now, but it's messy and is starting to smell a bit like a chili pot left in the sink too long. Which may or may not be the case. You'll never know.

Fawning over the photo of the kitchen led me to reconsider what I was using for a centerpiece on our dingy, but ever-so-loyal, kitchen table. One day it will be replaced with a Texas star-engraved, mosaic tile-lined eight-seater. But until that glorious day, our plain old four-chair ensemble has to stay. 

I still had our St. Patrick's day centerpiece tray going on, which I liked at first but now it's too low and not interesting enough. 



I found a couple ideas floatin' around on the web and might try out the artichokes in the glass vases eventually. I have plenty of vases on hand and can by fake fruit on the cheap at Hobby Lobby.

In the meantime, I purchased 15 lemons for $3 at my grocery store and a buncha pretty smellin' green stuff (including eucalyptus) for $4 and came up with this much-better-in-my-opinion arrangement.





Decisions, decisions! What do you have for your centerpiece?

  1. I like the wine corks in the bottle. I became frustrated and threw all mine out over the winter. Now I am collecting them again. I just put out all my Easter things and have a wreath on the dining table made of grapevines and eggs.....robin egg colors....blues and greens...pale, though.

  2. LOVE those inspiration pics - especially the last one. My dream kitchen has an eat-in nook with a bench :) I like the lemons look you did but artichokes would be really pretty as well! I have a cute ceramic pitcher on my table that I fill with flowers ... when my boyfriend remembers to bring me them!
