However, I know what he really prefers and want him to be happy with our home, too. So my challenge is trying to make things all bright and cheery like I want them to be without overwhelming him and making it too "girly", which is usually his main complaint for things I pick out.
Lately, I've become obsessed with shades of blue. Mainly teal. In our living room we have a white couch, chair and ottoman, a red loveseat, black curtains, and black/brown tables and entertainment center. I've brought in some colorful pillows and artwork, but it's mostly white, black and red. Also, our kitchen is mainly black, brown and red (aside from the not so pretty golden-yellow paint that the previous homeowner chose). I feel like both of those rooms could use a little sprucing up, and I feel like teal could be the way to go.
Since Pinterest is my go-to for almost everything in life these days (sad but true), I've been getting a lot of inspiration there. Here are a few of the things that make me think I need to add some teal to my life ASAP.
