mini home tour

15 August 2012
 i've been documenting bits and pieces of our apartment since making little updates like these DIY abstract paintings. the result is the mini home tour below and upon reflection, i have a problem - i seem to have forgotten that i live with an adult male.

 i love our place now, but i want to build in masculine elements to our home, so our space is interesting and appealing to the mr. (and actually looks like a man lives there). luckily, i have time to figure it out because james indulges my predisposition for all things girly.

Loving this mini home tour! I love your color pallete! How did you get your hubby to be ok with it? :) Any advice?

Julie and Lauren said...

Haha you're so cute. i lvoe the look even if it's more 'girly'- it's warm and comforting so your guy should be happy too :)

Love your feminine style and I think it is great that the Mr. lets you have free reign.

That's so great that you're guy doesn't mind the feminine color palette. That would not fly at my house. Lucky girl. :)

love it all!

Natalie said...

I love this, Ashley! Your DIY art looks so amazing in your space!

Taylor said...

it looks so great! and yes very girly, but you are lucky he is okay with the girly - so I say screw the masculine and keep all the pink you can :) otherwise you end up with the most hideous "painting" from bed bath and beyond hanging in your kitchen/living room because he just loves it so so much (can you sense the bitterness?? she's looking at me right now eyeing me down... ugliest painting alive. How did this happen to me?)
