stirring things up
Ever spend time at someone's house and it gives you the urge to try new things around your own home? It happens to me when I visit blogs and it happened recently in person after visiting Christine Chitnis' (Lavender and Limes) very cool home which features lovely blends of patterns, textures and tones, as evidenced in this shower curtain below with which I was instantly smitten!
Yep. Smitten with this Flamenco Shower Curtain from Anthropologie. I began to rationalize ...
The existing shower curtain
- Shows wear
- is discontinued
- Haven't found anything else that I like as much
- Price of current shower curtain x years of use = new shower curtain
- Oldest sister Betsy (a big Anthro fan) says to go for the new one
Today I headed to Anthropologie where there was only 1 left in aqua (surely a sign). While clutching to the shower curtain (mine!), I also found these Spoonful of Sugar knobs on clearance.
On to the small cabinet they went ...
Which of course, kicked off moving around furniture.
The dining room is generally set-up like this and it's pretty tight.
Experimenting, I pushed the table against a window/wall, diner-style.
It's a little different but it just might work.
I've been home alone today and am curious to see what everyone will think about these little changes, purchases and rationales! :)
