Still putting my room back together after painting a few weeks ago. But the color is so hot, I can't stand it! I'm blazing a color revolution right here. I also can't seem to get enough dogwood. Getting more tomorrow - and we're going to have a stoop sale at Saipua this weekend to start clearing things out for our move. I have:

old watering cans
old ceramic jugs (7 or so)
stuff
stuff
chotchkeys
an English bull dog


So swing by this weekend if you can to relish saipualand before it all blows away...

As a Virginia native, I love to see someone who loves dogwood as much as I do. Definitely an underrated blossom; always overshadowed by those showy cherry blossoms.

I must say, I've had a long-standing complete and total abhorrence of all things pink for some time (my childhood dabbling deep in the world of Barbie notwithstanding), but this color in your place might just change my mind. It's positively dreamy! My husband, who studied Art at Penn for grad school, and concentrated in color theory, would be proud that I'm beginning to embrace the color. Well done. Wish I lived closer-I'd bring over a bottle of sparkling rose, some Stevie Nicks and Babs, cupcakes out the wazoo, and turn it out in your newly christened digs.

What type of dog, is the other pup on the couch? It looks just like our new puppy we got at the shelter (from what I can see)

What is that name of that paint color? What brand of paint? I love it! I have about 8 different peachy coral swatches on my wall right now and can't decide.

I love that colour! and I love that all colours in that coral-pink-peach hue are named for kissing, or love!
Your room looks fantastic!
