Under Construction

Over the last 6 months or so we have worked really hard on fixing up the house. We have painted just about every room in the house and we are now ready to tackle the kitchen. I love the color red in kitchens, but wasn't sure I could pull it off since the kitchen morphs into the brown hallway and green dining room. Matt put up a big sample of the red I picked out in various parts of the kitchen and I am loving it! What do you guys think? I realize that the only loyal readers to this blog are my in-laws, but on the off chance someone else has stumbled upon this little blog--let me know what you think? Love it or hate it?

Here you can see the back wall of the kitchen and where it meets up with the hallway.

Speaking of kitchens...I got a new stove last week! WOOHOO!! I must be a grown up because new appliances really get me excited. I am hoping for a new dishwasher next. A girl can dream. The new stove deserved pictures of it for your viewing pleasure.

I am happy to report that I am no longer burning food- I knew it was the stove and not my culinary skills! Come on over for a batch of my brownies, now better than ever!

Love the red-- it makes the room fun and interesting! Besides, that particular shade of red goes well with browns/ greens. Go for it! (Love the new stove, too!)

I have a red dining room, so I vote for the red! I love red in rooms, and that looks like a pretty shade. How did you like Persian Pickle Club by the way? I am torn. I liked parts, but was disappointed in others.
