My Kitchen Colors and Room Remix {the blog}!


What I love about pk's design blog, Room Remix {the blog}, is that it's straight forward. It's simple to navigate through, pk has the greatest ideas, and she really loves to help others achieve their design dream within their budget.

 

Here's a little bit about pk that you might want to know! 

 

Hi! I’m PK. I’ve always loved interior design, so I’m very grateful to be able to pursue my passion every day. I really enjoy helping others transform their homes into beautiful, comfortable spaces that reflect their personality and fit with their lifestyle. Good design principles and creativity can be applied to create a great space within any budget, and the purpose of this blog is to provide you with decorating inspiration, creative ideas and resources, and to help you think outside of your current decorating box.

 

There are a couple of posts PK did recently that are my favorites.  First, is the kitchen ideas and design tips post.  Hmmm…  Wonder why that is? 

 

Speaking of kitchen inspiration, I’ve decided on my kitchen paint colors!  I’m so excited!  I can’t wait to get paint on my walls!



New colors by Gidden: Soothing Green Tea, Olivewood, 

and Toasted White.  


The second favorite is the HomeGoods Stylescope post that she did where HomeGoods is giving away a $5000 shopping spree in their weekly drawing! 

 

I took the test, and I'd agree with pk, that the results of the quiz turned out to be pretty accurate!

 

I'm an Earthy Modern Girl! 

 

This is how they described my style:

 

You keep up with culture, style, and trends, but have an appreciation for timeless forms and simple lines. You value good design, quality craftsmanship, and prefer the streamlined to the overly embellished or cluttered. You also appreciate the warmth and individuality ofnatural materials and handcrafted things and are inspired by colors and forms from nature. This contrast is what makes your home intriguing and comfortable. You love mixing up different textures and are sensitive to the tactile qualities of objects. Your style is grounded and solid, not flighty or frilly.

 

You value comfort. Your home is a warm and open friendly place, and you feel happiest when everyone is cared for and relaxed in your space. 

 

So, what's your style?  It's really a fun quiz. If you have time, come back and tell me!

 

Head on over and say HELLO to pk, and then scroll down and take the HomeGoods quiz!

I'm Elegant Classic:


You have a refined sensibility with an appreciation for history and tradition in your furniture and your rooms. You value beauty, things that are well crafted, and family heirlooms. You are visually sensitive and understand how symmetry and a formal layout give order to a room, and hence your home is refined and calming. You are not taken in by the trends of the moment. You go for things with a timeless appeal, and appreciate old-fashioned virtues like manners and handwritten notes and making a home that is welcoming for others.

You value creativity. You are stylish and fun loving, and can be an inspiration to others. You have a natural sense of drama, and you know you have to be willing to take risks—whether with colors, finishes, furniture choices, or ideas—for your home to stand out. Your home can be happy and lively and the place all of your friends want to be.

Thanks for sharing this, it was fun.

Also, I forgot to say I like the colors you've picked out for your kitchen. It's going to look great.

i love the colors you've chosen, especially the soothing green tea.
have you told us what color the countertops are going to be?

love room remix.

took the quiz: i'm a Bohemian Classic.

You have a refined sensibility and bring a sense of history and tradition into your decor. You appreciate how symmetrical arrangements and beautiful, well-crafted pieces create a solid foundation to a room. But you like to shake up this restraint with objects and accessories that express your personality and your love of other cultures. When traveling, you seek out unique objects that reflect what you love, and you use them in a sophisticated way. You want people to feel comfortable in your home, and cozy chairs, ethnic fabrics, unique pieces, and even a little touch of quirk or humor give your house a laid-back, Bohemian flair.

You value comfort. Your home is a warm and open friendly place, and you feel happiest when everyone is cared for and relaxed in your space. Elements like pillows, throws, overstuffed furniture, and good lighting set the mood. You may also enjoy layering different fabrics or mixing patterns to create a cozy effect.

the title surprised me, but everything else is true. and i do feel happiest when everyone is cared for & relaxed in my space!

thanks for sending me to the quiz.

Can't wait to see your kitchen!!

Sandy,

I am Bohemian Casual.

You are interested in creating a place where people feel relaxed. You have a variety of interests and influences and so appreciate different styles, cultures, and objects. Your home is cozy, with comfy chairs, throw pillows and places to set a drink or a book. But it also feels creative and visually intriguing, because you have an artist's eye that allows you to find objects that appeal to you in a unique and personal way—whether from your travels or from a local shop. This gives your home a feeling of being laid-back, and maybe even a bit quirky with its mix of pieces—some of which are classic, some handmade, some ethnic, and some just rich in meaning to you.

This is pretty accurate for me.

By the way, I like your kitchen colors. Can't wait to see the finished room.

Your colors are classic and classy. I'm sure your kitchen will look amazing when you are done. You have a great sense of style.

Hi Sandy! Thanks so much for the "pk post" today! As you know, I love your kitchen colors and can't wait to see the room come together. Have a great day...

Gina said...

Fun quiz! I'm a country casual-which totally sums it up for me. That's pretty acurate!

The Whispering Creek House said...

thanks for this post! i visited pk and love it!

GiBee said...

I'm Country Casual -- but not in a "kuntree-kuntree" kind of way. More like a Country Bungalo or Cottage way. Love it. They were dead on!

I can't wait to see your kitchen!

Judy said...

I can't wait to see the colors in your kitchen. I have a color similar to Olivewood as the main color in my home. I love the Green Tea color you choose to go with it.

I love visiting PK's blog. I took the HomeGood's test. Here are my results:

"You are a Bohemian Casual.

I'm going to take that test. I just took the one at Sproost and it said Nantucket and supposedly I love the beach (which I don't)! I like the colors you picked for your kitchen! I did green too, but mine's a kiwi green~smile!

Cynthia @An Accomplished Woman said...

I am off to take this quiz.... You are one of a kind dear!! Can't wait to see the results.

Laurie said...

I'm a Bohemian Classic! How fun is that?

{ L } said...

oooohh! I love your kitchen color choices!

Laura said...

Hello!
I'm Country Casual which I think is pretty accurate. Wish it would have had a list of all the options so I could see if there was a title that seemed to fit more, that would have been fun. But I think the description was fairly accurate. Thanks for sharing!
Enjoy your new kitchen!

Suzann @ The Olive Cottage said...

Love the colors.

I came up as country casual.

whimzie said...

I'm either Country Eclectic or Bohemian Classic (I was equally torn on a few questions so I took the test twice. Is that cheating?)
