i'm almost done putting everything together. here's some quick pics i took this morning....the lighting was not the best. i would say about 75% of what you see is from garage sales, estate sales & craigslist, i'm all for recycling & reusing... the couches were a steal on craigslist, and black chairs i found about 5 years back, i didn't need them at the time, but i had to grab them. I think my bed, bookcases & rug are the only new things we own, besides the little ikea accessories (the magnetic strip for the knives is so useful) . the letterpressed posters on the wall are from Hammerpress my sister and i have met Brady a bunch of time over the years, and he always brings these for us. we have like 10-20 different prints each, so we can trade them later on, she has the David Sedaris one now. ohh and i also found the cool light switch cover at anthroplogie,- they add so much!
i got the idea for the kitchen colors from this room i found in domino magazine. they used black tape around the edges to give it a more modern feel ( inspired by Roy Lichtenstein). what do you guys think? should i use the black tape, or keep the kitchen like it is??
