Kind of perfect

A version of Christmas morning has transpired since we last talked.
So much that I could not even wait until I had good lighting to show you the results.

In our NYC corporate apartment we have an abundance of white walls and a deficit of doors.
The only door we have other than the front door is the one you see. The door to the not very large bath.
The only place for guests to have any amount of privacy to change is within the not very large space.
We do have a nice walkway to the bath with a closet on the left and dresser on the right.
Visions of hanging a curtain here have danced in my head and probably in the head of every guest we've ever hosted.

Today I found this cloth shower curtain at Target and fell in love instantly.
The soft hue of chartreuse was sure to compliment our shams.
J didn't care for the pattern.
I think he would have chosen a simple white because we need more white and called it a day.

He had a change of heart.
The simple white was $24.99 and The Curtain of My Dreams was $5.06.
You must understand this is the opposite of what usually happens to me.
I like it and it immediately increases from $5 to $5000.
Not today.

Private area for changing? Pretty feminine pattern mixing muted aqua, pale pink, charcoal and chartreuse?
Done and done.

Merry Christmas in July, indeed.

  17. Lynn, good eye! It says, You can do this. I am so proud of you. A little encouragement for my man before his big test. He hasn't taken it down yet, so I suppose he likes the reminder. :)

  18. I was hoping it wouldn't be too private. :)


good communication is as stimulating as black coffee,

and just as hard to sleep after.
