My apartment: Looks like crap in summer.

Everything is covered. (We have southern exposures so I really need to protect the furniture from the blazing summer sun.) The plants are dead and every week the smallest fish is missing.
Husband has been sleeping her 2x a week and it never occurs to him to water a poor thirsty plant. At least the other one is super resilient…  Remember my neon idea? (I’m going to replace the marbled art with bright mismatched paintings…) Look how good that pink painting looks against my colors. BTW… Cookie made that.  Sorry the pic is so crooked.

Have a great day!

  1. yes! neons will be perfect and cookie’s hot pink piece is just the thing…

  2. Poor plant, I’ve seen this picture on another blog when I was looking for inspiration to use marbled paper. My grandmother use to cover her furniture up during the Summer so the fabric wouldn’t fade :) a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do

  3. Love the neon colors against the B&W living room! Summer is cruel…

  4. I don’t know, the covered furniture has that sort of chic Parisian vibe! Also, what’s usually in the big cylindrical vase on the far right?

      Thanks! That vase is from Ikea… I love it. I change it up depending on the season. Sometimes I put lilies. Sometimes cherry blossoms… most recently I had those purple ball flowers- alliums in them. I move it around too… its not always there.

  5. I hate summer! HATE! But, kinda of loving the painting there!

  6. You know I think Cookies art is BEYOND fab.
