wren living.

{source: wren living}

I have had a red kitchen for 10 years, by choice. Two different kitchens, and I chose to paint them both red. After 10 years of staring at a red wall, I am sort of over it.  I casually mention to the hubs that I want to paint to the kitchen, and he tells me to buy the paint and he'll take care of it...he is too good to me. Fantastic, now for the grueling task of picking a color...uggg...that could take a while. My sister-in-law showed me this fancy little gem from Sherwin Williams. It allows you to upload a photo of the room you want to paint and try out colors. I am going to try this, as soon as I actually take a photo of my kitchen.

I also want to swap out a few of the light fixtures. I am painfully waiting for Ikea to open near me. I have never been, and I seriously can't wait. Can you believe I have never been? Since the big blue store isn't an option for me, I went looking and stumbled upon Wren Living. They have some great options for lighting, and they also offer an online planner for bigger projects. While browsing the site I fell smitten over the mirrored end table, and the gold leg stool...swoon.

So tell me, are you doing any decorating soon?
What is your favorite store for goodies?

Ooooh! I'm totally doing a bunch of work on the house including re-painting the kitchen. I'm going with a greyish/blue I think as my cupboards are like a creamy/beige. The app sounds neat, need to check that out.
And I CANNOT believe you've never been to Ikea!!! You are going to love it. For the wrapping paper alone or maybe that's just me. ;/
