Around the House

Just so you will know, I am plagued by numerous disorders for which there seems to be no cure or treatment!! I am constantly plagued by boughts of ADD (Attention Decorating Disorder) and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Decorating). There seems to be no known cure for my issues other than taking an Advil and swiping my debit card at the nearest Kirland's, Pottery Barn, and/or antique store! My home is a constant "work in progress" as a result of my disorders.

Case in point...the kitchen! I had beautiful oak cabinets, which I painted black in the middle of the night. Yes, I had to do it in secret to where my husband would not kill me! Once I painted them, he agreed that they did look better!

Onto the bedroom....It looked perfectly fine until I decided that I was in L-O-V-E with Sherwin Williams Quiver Tan paint!!! That's when I repainted the bedroom while he was gone fishing. I moved the bed and totally changed everything around in a matter of two days. (That includes ripping up the carpeting and installing new flooring with the help of my son!)

So, as you can see, I clearly have ISSUES!!!


  1. It's gorgeous, Farica!! You are such an awesome decorator I love it!!

  2. Thank you, Allyson!! You have no idea how much I appreciate all of your support and encouragement!!

  4. Hi, Jennifer!! That Allyson, she is a sweetheart! I'm so glad to meet you and have you here! I'm going to go link up with you as well. I'm super excited to be here!! Bear with me as I'm learning all of this!!! Thanks for the compliment on the cabinets. I HATED the oak cabinets, but I am love, love, loving my black cabs!!! My kitchen is now my favorite room in the house! Thanks again for your kind words.

  5. I love black too. Have a can of that paint color always around the house. I am a new follower.

  6. Oh... saw you at All that Glitters with Jennifer.

  7. Oh boy, I am clearly in trouble now. Your style is *so* ME, I can tell I am going to be getting a gazillion ideas from you, and my pocketbook is going to be out of control. Your kitchen is GORGEOUS!! I LOVE the black cabinets. Black makes everything POP and stand out. Your kitchen looks very elegant, yet warm and inviting. Well done! Thanks for sharing! XOXO ~Liz

  8. Absolutely stunning Farica! I love it all!

  9. Hey, Farica! You know I love, love, love your new and improved kitchen!!!! I bet your hubby is afraid to leave the house! LOL!

  10. I can see your blog is going to be great! Thanks, for sharing your home and ideas with us.

    I love your kitchen cabinets. They are very pretty. I would love to paint mine black and have them distressed, but my granite and appliances are dark so I don't think it would work in my kitchen.
    I had to giggle that you painted them in the middle of the night! =o) I'm glad your husband liked the end result. They look fabulous.
    He must get suspicious now that when he goes to sleep or fishing you're going to be changing things up! ha-ha-ha You go, girl!

    have a happy day~ L

  11. Beautiful! Love all of your black pieces ... your cabinets are gorgeous, as well as your granite. And, I love your crisp, white slipcovered chair beside your lovely black bed, too! *Becca*

  12. I had to chuckled when I read that you painted your kitchen in the middle of the night! I think my hubby has just learned to trust my instincts (even when I don't myself) because I no long cringe when I ask him if I can paint something. :)

    Love you house! It's beeeautiful! I'm following you back!

  13. Girl I do the same thing! Hahaha. My husband comes home and just shakes his head. He always likes it though. :)

    So glad I found your blog at Debbie's newbie party. Now following!
