I really love the pink Kitchenaid line. I have practically have the entire collection. (The food processor is great for soups!) Oh, and I love the beadboard backsplashes we put in.
I love using black to draw the eye. I think many people are afraid of black and they think you have to use white to say cottage... not so!

Pink Zinnia by Alexander Henry
Normally I swoon for Amy Butler... but these Alexander Henry prints really called to me. I checked them out in person and ended up picking the first one (Floral Fantasmo). It has a cool 70s retro vibe, don't you think? The zinnia is amazing, but it's an upholstery grade so it was really thick and would not be sheer enough. I must make a pillow from that zinnia fabric though. Gorgeous!
From this I have learned, although I like looking at pictures of black and white rooms, especially pure white, I can't actually live in those rooms. They are gorgeous. But when I sit in them, I feel.. well... not claustrophobic... but a bit pent-up. I really like my neutral rooms with brighty poppy bits of color.
Has anyone ever had a similar situation? Or am I the only weirdo who has to have some color to punch it up?
