The Ikea Stockholm Sofa in Sandbaka Green… I Can Haz?

Published in: Daily Photo

I feel like I can’t/should never buy zee nice zings because of teh kitteh, but I want this green couch from Ikea so badly!

Unfortunately, it would take Tabs less than 2.5 seconds to put snags in the cushions with his claws. I can already hear the fabric ripping and feel the sweet, sweet pain…

This bright jewel green sofa is in the March issue of Better Homes and Gardens.

Yes, I read Better Homes and Gardens! :) My mom gets me a subscription every year as a gift, and I love it.

Anyway, this sofa is featured in an article about BHG’s color palette of the year (similar idea to Pantone’s Color of the Year, but for an entire palette of coordinating colors), where they talk about a vibrant palette of leafy jungle green, deep ocean blue, berry, gray and coral, and I’m totally feelin’ it.

I’m currently campaigning at home to paint our living room walls coral (and to get the green Ikea couch). Let’s see how long it takes for El Hub to get on board, haha!

I dunno… I guess I’m just tired of living that beige life, ya know? When we first moved into our condo five years ago, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with the place, so I picked neutral colors for the walls and curtains, thinking that I’d switch out the beige when the inspiration struck.

Well, that time has finally come.

Get outta my dreams, and get into my living room, you green Ikea couch!

Freesia for Your Thoughts…

Published in: Daily Photo

Red and yellow freesia

Whenever I walk by these flowers, which are just outside my door in our little cul-de-sac circle, I want to LEAP into the air like a bird with my arms outstretched and my toes pointed! (Like how Baby jumps into Johnny’s arms in the final scene of Dirty Dancing.)

These are my neighbor’s freesia flowers, and yes, I’m that weirdo in the neighborhood who gets all up in your garden when you’re not around and takes pictures of yo’ blooms.

I wish there was a way to implement scratch ‘n sniff with the computer screen, because these smell amazing!

Oh…this? This is just my wackadoo mani, courtesy of the new ORLY Color AMP’D line at Target stores. From the left, that’s LA Dreamin, LA Sunshine, La La Land, Echo Park and Rooftop Lounge ($9.99 each)

Before you paint your nails this weekend, raid your jewelry box.

No, seriously! You can find lots of inspiration and color combination ideas betwixt the shiny baubles, necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

That’s what I did today. Then I painted my paws with a few cute, colorful spring shades from ORLY’s new Color AMP’D line (available online now at target.com and coming exclusively to Target stores starting March 8).

What do ya think? Do my nails go with this Neon Spray necklace by Kristin Perry?

Methinks they do. :)
