Seafoam Kitchen Styling

The first room that I focused on when we moved into our new place was the kitchen.  Our cabinets are white, so I decided to pick one color for the accessories, towels, and dishes.  I thought seafoam was the perfect choice because its fresh, clean, and can work for any season.  I'm continuously on the the hunt for seafoam colored accessories to place above the upper cabinets. Here are some of my favorite vintage and vintage-inspired finds online.

Living Room Palette

A lot has happened since my last blog post...we've moved back to Virginia, my husband has changed jobs, we celebrated our first year wedding anniversary, and finally feel like we're settling in our "home".  Really its just an apartment, but its perfect for us right now.  A lot of our furniture is yard sale finds and hand-me-downs, but we have a beautiful dining set that was a gift from our parents and we just purchased a new couch and love seat! We've been thinking about the new style for our living room for a while now and have actually agreed on some of the biggest aspects of the design.  We love the idea of a rustic masculine feel with accents of navy and rust.  I'm hoping it will turn out a little like this...
