spcc color challenge 10

I love this week’s SPCC challenge! Crushed Curry is gorgeous with Pale Plum and Pumpkin Pie. I think it’s rather tropical! Which meant that I had to bust out the Eastern Blooms. A couple of the divas incorporated the Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie pattern from Razzleberry Lemonade, so I had a bit of a debate on whether I should use it or not. (I really wanted to!) Instead, I reached for my Crushed Curry pattern from the Lovely Flowers paper — the same one I used on the last SPCC challenge I participated in. Isn’t it great how far a sheet of paper can go? I just used a little bit here, and I’m quite happy with how it looks with the Pale Plum.

On the home front, the flooring installation is set for the 26th! Hooray! Which means this weekend will be devoted to ripping out the current cabinets. We’re going to be putting in a brand new IKEA kitchen after the bamboo goes in. Whoo hoo!

One of the cool things that IKEA does is contract with a local cabinet-maker/kitchen design firm to help people with their kitchens. A guy from Artisan Installations, the IKEA contractor here in Salt Lake City, came over this morning and took measurements and talked with us about how to make a kick-butt kitchen using IKEA. He’s going to draft a few designs for us over the next few days. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with! Chris and I used the online planner ourselves and did a preliminary design first, but it needed some definite help. I feel really good about this. {grins and claps hands in delight}

Hopefully, I’ll have some time to get a few “before” pictures of the kitchen and living room in their current “construction-zone” motif. I would love for everyone to see the difference that the bamboo flooring is going to make!
