Last week the kitchen sat right here minding its own business.
It was neutral.
It was happy.
It was all about being textured and gray and khaki with a side of white dishes.
Blue and white showed up and went all after-school special and got its braces off and hair highlighted and trimmed its bangs and got a new backpack.
Went all cute and worked its way into the heart of the kitchen.
That blue and white.
She sashayed in with her come-hither looks and batting eyelashes and turned the kitchen’s world upside down.
Neutral is fine she said.
But why settle for fine when you could look like this?
Don’t worry, she said.
It’s not a big change.
It’s really almost nothing at all.
Just a few hints of color.
And so it eas that the kitchen added hints of blue and white.
Like these plates.
And this runner.
And these platters.
I wasn’t sure about these because I ordered them online. They are SO MUCH CUTER IRL.
(total aside: that’s “in real life.” Sorry. For a moment I forgot I wasn’t in high school.)
Blue and white whispered in the kitchen’s ear.
I’m not here to make a big splash.
I’m not here to shake everything up.
I’m not here to start a revolution.
I’m just here to stand by your side.
I’m just here to make it all a little sweeter.
I’m just here to help you sing your song.
And then she finished her blue and white siren’s song with these decorating words of wisdom.
And besides. Just between us, my wonderful friend kitchen. Some people don’t even consider blue and white a color at all.
Just a better version of neutral. 🙂
PS I’ve been getting so many requests lately for items in the house I just started a Shop My House page with all of the resources for each of the rooms.
