I love my pet station, but I’ve decided that it needs a new color.
You see, when I made it, I was determined to bring that pinkish red color into my little condo. Well, since then, I’ve realized that perhaps I’m not really a pinkish red kind of person. So I switched to orange–turquoise, apple green, yellow, white, and ORANGE. Yes, that suits me much better. And as you know, my dining chairs are temporary. I still haven’t found any replacements, but I’m looking!!
So far the orange is just in little tiny doses, but I promise it’s there. See here on the hand-painted family name sign?
Then there are my little chalkboard basket tags, accented in orange.
And then it’s here on the tree mural also. Can you see it?
And of course, in the whole “master plan” for my little condo’s “public spaces”, I plan to bring more touches of orange here and there.
So, since I switched out the pinkish-red for orange, my thought was naturally that I’d paint the pet station some shade of orange. But when I told my mom what I was planning, she looked at me as if I had lost my mind.
Now I realize that orange is one of those colors that people either generally love or hate. I happen to love it. But now I’m doubting my decision.
Well, perhaps she’s right. After all, looking back at my “roadmap” for my design plan, there’s really not much orange at all. I suppose a huge orange pet station might be a bit much for the room.
Oh mercy! Will this thing EVER get done?! Anyway, the roadmap has changed a bit. I’ve decided to get new chairs (if I can ever find them!!), and I’m still going to do a floor cloth, but it probably won’t be stripes. But this is still the general feel that I want in the room.
So what do you think? What color should this pet station be?
We tossed around some other ideas, like apple green or black. One color I know for certain that I don’t want is turquoise. I already have plenty of turquoise. I don’t know…I still like the orange idea, but would that be a huge mistake?
Give me your thoughts!!
