My Grandpa Angelucci was a wonderful man. Some of my greatest childhood memories are of the days spent at his house on Sunset Beach in California, surrounded by the smells of the ocean and fresh Italian food he made OH SO well from scratch. I cherish these memories, and always will.
Everytime I am at Buca Di Beppo, I think back to Grandpa. Something about the atmosphere makes me think of him. I find myself paying more attention to the walls rather than the food each time I go! So for my dining room wall inspiration, I have decided to go with a Buca Di Beppo-ish wall scene. I love the idea of having several picture frames, each different and unique. I purchased a book at Goodwill called "The Canals of Amsterdam" The book is totally 1970's, but I love the pictures. Right now, I have 5 frames w
ith 5 different pictures of Amsterdam. I'm loving it, but wanting to add in some older pictures of every day life outside of just Amsterdam. I have not seen any pictures of my family from anything pre-1980, so unfortunately Im outta luck in that department. Lets see what I can come up with!

Jason and I are moving into a new home, beginning of October. We have the keys so we have started moving in, but before we move the big things in I want to paint all the walls! Jason gave me strict rules "No beige!" So, we are going with more of a Modern Provence theme with Yellows, Reds, Blues, Grays, Peach, Greens, Lavender. (Just google; Provence) First task is our kitchen, I want a soft "Hawthorne" yellow in the kitchen, with more of a pale/soft gray/blue in the dining room. Below is the yellow I would like in the kitchen, and below that is the color I would like in the dining room (a few shades lighter)
I would like to place a vase with dried lavender inside on the center of the table, and some curtains in a green pattern of some sort. What do you think?
