Quick trip

I am working on a post about organizing my closet which I will share very soon. This job required a “quick trip” to Ikea for hangars. As most of you know, there is no such thing as a quick trip to Ikea!

In addition to the hangars and other small items, I realized I needed wanted these beautiful blue tea towels for the kitchen.


After all, even the kitchen could use a little colour!

Grey Kitchens ?


Today’s Vancouver Sun has a story in their home section – Shades of grey: What’s hot in the heart of the home.   The article goes on to state that grey has been the go to neutral since 2010.  Grey is now appearing in 55% of kitchens and 56% of bathrooms.

I don’t think I have ever been in a grey kitchen.  I have seen them on Pinterest and in magazines, but not up close and personal.

I like the feel I get when I am in a kitchen with rich dark cabinets and espresso stained floors and I especially love a fresh white kitchen, but grey ?

I am not so sure about having grey as the backdrop to my home… but for my clothes ?  Now, that’s another story!
