red cabinetry for boys

Can you tell what's on my mind?

But before we get into that, let me say THANK YOU for all of your comments on yesterday's post.  I can't wait to show it to my client and encourage her that she did, in fact, make the right decision.  
Y'all are the best!!

Yes, I'm considering painting the vanity in the boys' bathroom red.  
Well, technically either Saffron or Chili Pepper.  Not sure.  This is another room that I have not touched since we moved in.

I'm between these two colors:

I"m leaning toward the Chili Pepper.  It's strange how my mind works.  Because I was totally unmotivated to do anything to our boys' bathroom.  But then, my oldest son and I found these darling prints on Etsy and
 I was inspired. 

 BAM. Once inspiration hits, then watch out.  Because then I have all the motivation I need to get busy.
I considered navy cabinets, but I don't want our whole house to be a version of blue.  Mamma needs some contrast 'round here! :-)

Have we connected?  I'd love to hear from you on Facebook or Twitter.  If you'd like to work together creating a home you absolutely love, click here for more information on my services.


  1. I love that idea! I never would have thought of doing red cabinetry, but I think it will be perfect in the boys bathroom! Go for chili pepper!

  2. I LOVE those prints and I think the red cabinets would be perfect! I like Chili Pepper.

  3. Thanks for sharing, I love reading you should post more often...

  5. Those are perfect prints for little boys! And perfection with a red vanity. I vote Chili Pepper :)

  6. Oh I say go for it and I love the Chili Pepper. I think a bathroom is a great place to do something a little unexpected. I just gave mine striped walls yesterday (posted about it today). Why not right?

  7. 1. I love the red, Chili Pepper, is my pick.
    2. Those prints are the absolute cutest. And I'm pretty sure I read this right, but I love that your son picked it out on Etsy himself. Puffy heart him for that!

  8. So, so adorable, those prints!!! Absolutely perfect jumping off point, as always, girl! I totally say go for it with the red, those are both a little more muted than say, fire engine red (c: ha! I was just going to say muted, but then I realized how ridiculous "red" and "muted" sound in the same sentence...(c:

  9. Oh yes I love both of those red choices, especially with the blue accent in the pictures. Nice!

  10. Love both of those colors! What a fun and bold idea to paint the cabinets! Can't wait to see how it turns out!

  11. Darling prints Abby, and I love the color Chili Pepper!
