I tend to choose neutral colors when I decorate. I love colors, but prefer to live with a calmer backdrop.
Case in point: my kitchen island and stool with only a red dish towel and bowl to add color.
Imagine my surprise when I found a bright green stool at a consignment shop and fell in love with it.
I left the store without it but couldn't stop thinking about how cheerful it was and what a great shape it had.
The next week, I had to go back and see if it was still there. I had decided that if it was, it would be mine.
It was and it is.
I am loving the pop of color in my kitchen. I don't have anything else in my home that matches it but it doesn't matter. Every time I walk into the kitchen, it makes me smile.
Have you ever bought something unexpected for your home because you fell in love with it?
