Ah! It's just so pale! I love it. You can see why I dislike my own dark fireplace. I love light colors.
This dining room or kitchen area is, I guess, totally "girlie." My husband recently pointed out to me that I have decorated the house in a very feminine style. This is a topic I would like to discuss with others: how to create a masculine/feminine balance in your home if you, um, totally love very feminine looks! Honestly, I'm not sure what a "masculine" style would look like. I just know what I like.
I love monochromatic rooms. Perfect for control freaks like myself. I don't decorate this way, but I like to look at it!
