It's funny how inspiration develops.
As you know, I recently painted our guest room a very pretty soft blue. Over the past two weeks, I've been slowly bringing pink things into this room, since I think pink and blue go smashingly well together. I love pink, but don't own very much, yet small things are slowly migrating to the room:
Along the way, I began searching for other blue and pink objects online. In my search, things that are the forgotten-colour teal blue crossed my mind. I've been fond of teal blue since Grade 7 when I had a teal jacket that looked great on me.
So I started looking for teal-coloured pieces and found a few pretty things on Etsy. Then at Pottery Barn, I came across this teal blue bedside table (maybe not true teal blue, but with the same tone and vibe):
I decided that these little tables would be perfect for my guest room!
So I tried to order them. But Pottery Barn is weird about what it ships to Canada - the tables were not available in blue. So I tried to order them from Seattle but shipping costs were too high in the end. But special thanks to Kenlie and Amanda at the Seattle (University Village) store for all their help figuring out international shipping with me!
Since I couldn't get the blue, but liked the style (and price), I decided to order the white ones. They should be here within the week, and I may continue with the fantasy and paint them teal blue when they arrive:
I keep looking for teal blue and pink for this room and have found some pretty vintage things on Etsy:
Once I get the room organized, I will have a big pink and blue reveal. Stay tuned!
