A Mixed Bag…and a #PKG update

A Mixed Bag…and a #PKG update

Be forewarned, this post is going to be all over the place.
First…a little pink, orange and blue pretty I put together after seeing this shot….
I simply adore that bright palate…actually I’m kind of obsessed it….how the neon pink and blue look against the orange and yellow…I’m really almost dead over it.
So here…more examples…
{photos via HERE}
Doesn’t all that bright colour just make your knees weak?  It does mine.
Ok…next thing…this will come as a huge shock to you I’m sure but there’s a couple of little things I want for the kitchen…
The lovely Lindsey forwarded me those BHLDN glasses this morning- have you ever?  She’s a smarty pants…more proof of this…just in case you missed the #PKG tour chatter the other day, the kitchen is open for viewings and Lindsey came up with the brilliant coinage…#boozynostainpkg tour to denote that when there’s a party, there must be no drinkies poos that could stain the marble…see…she came up with that and sent me those glasses…smart.
Oh and an Edit thanks to smart Lindsey…I forgot that the whole tour was originally Meredith’s idea so I must mention her brilliance as well…not that I haven’t done that 1 or 1000 times before so you get the idea on that one:)
Anyhoo…I want/need both of those things- like I can’t own a gold coffee pot? 
Tooth Fairy/Santa/mom/hubster are you reading this?
And on the same subject, I also need a booze overhaul.
After seeing Meredith’s sneak peek the other day it dawned on my that my liquor cabinet is fugly…I never thought about it before because all the bottles were hidden in my old kitchen but now they’re not…
and it’s a sea of orange, black and red…um no.
So, I need a shopping list of booze to by.
I turned to Twitter the other night with a shopping list request and got this back…
I found that Pinky Vodka a while back and let’s just say, it WILL be in that bar area…so what if I have to order it from BC?
The rest is still on the table…loving all of it…and thank you to Ashley, Lindsey, Meredith, Melissa, Carolyn, and Exotic Floral Design, for the amaze suggestions…don’t you just love Twitter???

Edit…the always fabulous Alex just tweeted a new suggestion for me…hellooooo gorgeous….

lovejoy1
So what say you…what pretty bottles would you buy if you were me?
Oh and almost forgot…it’s a big day here…backsplash is being installed…and PS, it’s not really a backsplash at all…Meredith and I have another little surprise up our sleeves…think vintage…marble…feminine.
Have a gorgeous Thursday everyone!!

    I just immediately pinned all of your drinking pretty! Love all of these ideas. There was the most gorgeous vodka I saw recently and now I can remember where. If I find it I will definitely let you know. xo

    You are too nice, but we should give some credit to Meridith as the show home style tour was really her idea! I just added the booziness πŸ™‚ Love the pretty bottles…but the grenedine is NOT going to work for the “no stains” part of #boozynostainspkgtour. Only for decor purposes!

    gorgey gorge. and while we’re on the subject of booze… what about a bunch of vintage decanters? that way you can keep any liquor you damn well please on hand. (e.g. http://www.etsy.com/listing/78063983/vintage-decanters?ref=sr_gallery_10&ga_search_submit=&ga_search_query=vintage+decanter&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade) πŸ™‚

    I think you should change the ‘WANT’ to ‘NEED’ but that is just the way I think. πŸ˜‰

    Can’t wait to see a snip-it of the backsplash!! BTW, be sure to enter my Visual Comfort giveaway, I know you were eying some walls sconces from them.

    Love the colors in the first collage, and I don’t think your bar area is fugly. The right side with the bottles could use a little work, but the tray on the left is lovely! I do enjoy pretty liqueur bottles, but unfortunately they are also usually more expensive than other brands. Oh- and I can’t wait to see the back splash! I’m sure it will be gorgeous!

    Love all the fab bottles but my vote would be for vintage crystal decanters. There are always tons at the thrift stores. I also love the old silverplate labels that hang on them. Maybe you could even find them in brass? Tres chic!!!!

    Love the kitchen progress! What about putting your festive beverages in decanters in colors of your choice or you could mix some decanters and some of the fabulous bottles that you pictured!

    Have a great weekend!

    ah, showing that pink + color board to Tash, she’s working on some hits of neon in her room right now… I decant several types of alcohol into vintage crystals decanters that we inherited and collected, gotta have a little sparkle πŸ™‚ If you really want luxe, add a bottle of remy xo – the top shelf ultimate.

    Um…I so agree with you. The bottles must be pretty cause it is all about the styling…and I have to look at it everyday and my eyes will hurt if it isn’t pretty…pretty…pretty!
