After living in our newly built home for a few years, I had grown tired of the “builders white” on the walls.
It was time for some color. So I began researching color schemes and immediately fell in love with the turquoise, aqua, and reds of the 50s.
The first room to be painted was our dining room in a beautiful robust red. The kitchen attaches to the dining room. It will be aqua. And our half bath on the first floor attaches to he kitchen. So I wanted to paint that room in the beautiful turquoise tones.
But here’s the thing. I wanted to capture the joyfulness and cheerfulness of the 50’s decorating without necessarily creating a period room. My husband doesn’t mind an occasional vintage piece in the decorating scheme, but he’s not terribly fond of whole room recreations. I wanted to utilize that color scheme but create something more modern and whimsical. Check out my Modern Day makeover below. What do you think? BEFORE–blah blah blah
I just love this little vintage bird picture. Don’t you?
