Long time no see! Way back in June I created this dining room inspired by Dr. Seuss book The Cat in the Hat. It took me weeks to create an adult room based on a children's book. Then, apparently I promptly forgot about it. I've been busy with parenting and life. Plus, honestly, my creative steam ran out because it takes a lot of work to create these rooms and while I enjoy it tremendously, I don't have enough traffic to justify the time I put into it.
So, since I created this room about 5 million years ago I have lost the links to all the items. I can still talk about the inspiration, though. The Cat in the Hat has only four colors: red, white, turquoise, and black.The vintage number signs represent Thing 1 and Thing 2. The striped rug is for the Cat's striped hat. The neat fish bowl is, of course, in honor of the fish who tries to maintain control of the situation in the book. I had to include a cat print. I really just wanted to create a kind of wacky feeling the book has in dining room form.
I hope to be back posting things here and there. It's my New Year's resolution!
