A little touch of color.

Monday, September 13, 2010



I have almost finished arranging my new house. I have recently acquired a new roommate, my best friend Christian, and we have been packing, cleaning, arranging, styling, and enjoying our little house at the top of the hill. Our styles are very different, but somehow it just works. I tend to enjoy brightly colored and chaotic furniture, lamps and curtains, while Christian more enjoys the classic shabby chic type style with light colors and floral print.

here is a little preview.



If I had to compare our sense of styles to a book or movie, Christian would most certainly be some sort of Jane Austin novel (Pride and Prejudice to be exact), while I would be better compared to Jennifer Anniston's character in Along Came Polly very sporadic and lost at times. We have managed quite nicely though. I cook, Christian cleans, I tweet and blog on my computer, Christian reads a novel, I blare Cloud Cult and Radiohead on my Ipod, while Christian listens to Frank Sinatra at an acceptable tone on her record player. A perfect combination right?
