I Love Rainbows.

It is one of the things I have in common with my eleven (almost 12!) year old sister. I don’t know what that says about me. Whatever.

I also love everything shabby chic.

Rainbow love+shabby chic love=contradiction.

The one thing I know about shabby chic-ness, is that it mostly involves ruffles, lace, grouping stuffs, and WHITE. Lots and lots of whites.

But I love rainbows.

So trying to figure out how to decorate my house has been a little bit of a problem.

I want shabby chic,
but I also want colors.


Its like this battle going on constantly in my head.

Our room is pretty much all white and I love it, but I wanted something more…

To satisfy my dueling personalities, I decided on white walls downstairs and…

colored ceilings!

It’s like a rainbow in our house!

Second Living Room

Yes, it is orange. “Ripe Tangerine” to be exact.

Dining room…please excuse the blue tape.

from the kitchen looking into the dining room.

We painted the ceiling “Bright Sunshine”.

I’ve got sunshiii-eee-ine!

Also, some proof that I DO work and not just take pictures

That isn’t all we’ve been doing…we also finished the floor in the second living room. Which means we can move everything out of living room number one (you will see pictures soooon!) so I can paint that ceiling and finish the floors. Stay tuned for an update on that in the next couple of days.

  1. Alisha! I LOVE your color ceilings! So much fun! Your home gets more and more lovely, all your hard work (and fabulous photographic documentation) is inspiring and I love you too much to be jealous.

  2. Alisha your house looks fabulous! I have been remodeling and fixing up our house so I can truly appreciate all the freaking hard work it takes to put a house together. Your doing awesome and the wood floors look amazing!
