Aquas, and Greens, and Our Front Door...Oh My!

Wishing, and hoping, and thinking, and praying.... for an aqua & green abstract landscape painting for above our fireplace! And look at what we have now! This is just the start to our neutral palette with touches of aqua and green. I love it and can't wait to keep pulling the entire look together.

My amazingly talented mom, Paula Prass, is the artist behind our first piece of art in our new home! I can't think of a better way to begin an art collection than with a piece from my mom.

I found a set of aqua lamps with cream shades from our local Marshall's. I love the color and the distressed look of the base. I'm using one in the entryway below and the other one will be used in our dining room. I'll be adding more to both spaces and will be sure to take you along during the transformations.

Next on our list was an update to our front door. I had been inspired by another blog (one that I would link to if I could remember it!) and have a passion for typography, vintage signs, etc. So, this was the perfect project to cross off of our list quickly. I ordered the vinyl design from Uppercase Living and I'm so happy with how easy it was to apply as well as how well it turned out!

Clean and classic with a twist - just what I adore!

Lovely home--so clean and fresh! Esp. love the office photos in the previous post. The question is, with two kiddos, how do you keep it clean?!

I'm laughing that I had that same exact lamp in my cart at Home Goods this week. Were we separated at birth??? The house looks FAB!!

Beautiful! I don't have much blue in my house but have been so drawn to turquoise/aqua lately. I'm about to unabashedly poke around your blog! Happy new year. :)
