I so agree with the accent color. I hate to see a woman that over does it. Pink shirt, pink earrings, pink pumps, pink hair pieces, and a row of pink bracelts. YUCK....Eva's was head on greeeeat.

Swoon! I love this post!
Any idea what the floor color is in the second picture and what the paint color is in the third photo of the cupboard? I'm looking for this color and I would love to know where that paint came from.
Thanks for another beautiful post. I love your blog!
