Just recently I decided to give the inset in our dining area a little makeover. I'm sure that you remember the dining situation from our previous apartment. Well, to say the least, the PS cabinet was a little small for our current living dining area (and we no longer needed the storage because our kitchen is much bigger). So I decided to put the cabinet in the office, and switch it out with something a little more daring and proportional to the space. I measured the space at a whopping 79", so I thought, why not a Malm occasional table... in orange of course.
What can I say? I'm a sucker for a pop of color!
When my hubby took it out of the box, he asked with a puzzle face, "Baby, is this the right color?"
"Yes!" I said confidently. "It's actually supposed to be orange".
"Okay..." he replied.
I must admit, it was a tad bit hilarious. (You had to be there.) But he definitely trusts my pure awesomeness.
It was after 6pm when he put it together, so please excuse the dark pictures. I was determined to get a before and after photo. But don't worry, they get better below. As you can see, the table almost fills the space completely. It's also on tiny, little wheels, so it's easy to move around within a moment's notice.
Here's it all lit up. Pretty awesome, right?
I think as time goes on I'll switch up the art and accessories. I also finally found a home for our PS Karljohan stool, which has the coveted job of holding some of my favorite books.
The orange really gives a burst of energy to the space, and wouldn't you know it, Tangerine Tango is Pantone's Color of 2012. Just call me a little color forecaster!
