We’re trying to figure out which shade of “beige” is the right shade of beige to paint our walls.
And we’re thinking about buying a station wagon.
The latter statement is false, but seriously – are we that boring that we’re considering BEIGE?
Here’s the answer: YEP.
Our house here in Los Cabos ain’t all that huge. We have 3 beds, 2 full baths and a combined living room/dining room/kitchen area.
We LIVE in the living room/dining room/kitchen area. And the color on the walls is driving me CRAZY.
When we moved here from O-Hi-O we craved NEUTRAL. Our house in Ohio was fantastic. And colorful. And modern. With clean lines. And great art. And quirky decor.
In Cabo, we’re the complete opposite.
Yeah, we attribute part of this change to the fact that many of our belongings are in two storage units in Ohio, but we also just wanted something different.
Now, we’re earth-tones with traditional Cabo-style washed walls that we actually PAID for. Loved ’em at first. HATE them now.
So, see that clock that is above the couch? It’s going to be moved to the small wall above the area above the chair. And those frames?
They, along with about 10 more of all shapes, colors and sizes are going to be moved to the hallway.
The beach and pool signs will be moved to the courtyard.
And… we need something else to go above the couch.
I REALLY like these from West Elm… but they’re ALREADY sold out. And they’re new. I’m heartbroken. But I’m giving it time. I hope they’re available again… (See here.) I’d like 5-7 of them.
I also really like this as potential back-up. It’s fancy. (And available here.)
AND, I want a new rug but cannot FIND one that is less than $5,000 that I love. It needs to have a pattern and be ABSOLUTELY ok with high-traffic and a baby who leaks her sippy cup everywhere.
Care to see our new chalkboard pantry door? We had a chalkboard in our old house and we missed it.
SO, from you – dear friends, I need assistance.
POR FAVOR… suggest some online shopping for me, please. I feel like we’ve looked everywhere.
I need ideas. I need good shoppin’. I need something that will last us for a little while; not forever. Unfortunately, Cabo isn’t forever.
THANK YOU for your assistance and I shall keep you updated on our progress. (Pronounced “PROgress.”)
