  1. I like it a lot. I realy like how the shelves fit the walls by the opening perfect. Did you make the art? It looks great.

  2. Thanks! I’m afraid I didn’t make the art. It was on sale at World Market awhile ago and I got some then hoping to find the perfect spot in our house for them.

    I like your orange dining room. However, I don’t like the blue room next to the orange room. They don’t flow very well right now.

    I love the blue room off of the orange one. If I remember my grade school are class blue and orange are complimentary colors… or maybe it is orange and purple. Anyway, I love it!!
