I Love Rainbows.

It is one of the things I have in common with my eleven (almost 12!) year old sister. I don't know what that says about me. Whatever.

I also love everything shabby chic.

Rainbow love+shabby chic love=contradiction.

The one thing I know about shabby chic-ness, is that it mostly involves ruffles, lace, grouping stuffs, and WHITE. Lots and lots of whites.

But I love rainbows.

So trying to figure out how to decorate my house has been a little bit of a problem.

I want shabby chic,
but I also want colors.


Its like this battle going on constantly in my head.

Our room is pretty much all white and I love it, but I wanted something more...

To satisfy my dueling personalities, I decided on white walls downstairs and...

colored ceilings!

It's like a rainbow in our house!

Yes, it is orange. "Ripe Tangerine" to be exact.

We painted the ceiling "Bright Sunshine".

I've got sunshiii-eee-ine!

That isn't all we've been doing...we also finished the floor in the second living room. Which means we can move everything out of living room number one (you will see pictures soooon!) so I can paint that ceiling and finish the floors. Stay tuned for an update on that in the next couple of days.


  1. Alisha! I LOVE your color ceilings! So much fun! Your home gets more and more lovely, all your hard work (and fabulous photographic documentation) is inspiring and I love you too much to be jealous.

  2. Haha thanks Lady Amber :) I am so excited for the day we can have a big celebratory party!

  3. Alisha your house looks fabulous! I have been remodeling and fixing up our house so I can truly appreciate all the freaking hard work it takes to put a house together. Your doing awesome and the wood floors look amazing!

  6. This is such a neat idea. Can't wait to see it for myself!!! ooooh yeeeeah!!! Are you going to paint any ceilings blue??

  7. YES! The first living room ceiling will be "True Turquoise". Yay! I'm doing that this weekend.

  8. Alisha, you should paint the ceilings in your house a different color of the rainbow!

  9. You need to come see it! I have blue, orange, and yellow up! Caeden's room will have red and I'm thinking of doing the laundry room minty green!
