I jinxed myself yet again yesterday...we still do not own a house. All I'm going to say is that I'm reeaaalllllyyyyy resisting the urge to morph into a crazy nastyass honey badger. I've had enough. Let's change the subject though, shall we? I recently picked up a copy of Carol Spier's book, The Finishing Touch: Details That Make a Room Beautiful, and have been thinking about it. The book is packed full of great spaces and ideas that I could easily translate in our own space. We had dinner at my parents' house last night and I was thinking about their attention to detail. Here's a perfect example- the cabinet itself is pretty gorgeous, but it's that pop of blue against the greenish wall that just kills me every time I walk into their house. Add the stacks of red cookbooks (my mom is a cookbook fiend) and I think you have a pretty fabulous combo. I'm curious...what's your favorite detail in your house? Feel free to include links.
UPDATE: The paint color is Behr Cattail Brown. It's even better in person.
