Kitchen spruce up, red and turquoise

I have been trying to add in more touches of reds and shades of turquoise in my kitchen..
who knew it was so hard to find a bright red?
I have seen lots of shades of deep reds, burgundy's and so on,
but I have yet to find a bright red tablecloth, or table runner.
I haven't given up, but until I find one I do have a pretty printed
floral one that I look forward to using.   (Come on Spring.. Lol)

So today I thought I would share what I have done so far and a few of the items
that I have found.

I had received a gift card at Christmas so what did I use it for?
New dishes for my china hutch.

However, I didn't do the match-y match-y thing.

I chose cream colored plates and beautiful printed dishes to go with them!







You probably recognize the brand? :o)
 (dishes by: The Pioneer Woman)

I really like the bright colors and fun prints,
and since these had bright red and turquoise I chose the prints that I liked the best
and in my cart they went.


The next thing I did was find some new rugs, this took some time.
I previously have had burgundy rugs for several years,  and it was definitely
time for something new and I really wanted red, but again..
I couldn't find a true red in what I was looking for.
When I did find something close, it was either a bad choice for a kitchen rug,
or not the size I wanted.. but I finally found these, and decided I liked
them enough to go with this pretty shade of teal instead.





I really like the additional pops of color that they have added to the space,
there is definitely something fun and cheerful about adding in some fun
pops of color and prints to a space.

Master Closet space saving simply

I had purchased some slim line hangers several months ago to see if
they REALLY did free up closet space.. (similar found here)



I didn't have high expectations for them so didn't actually pick up very many.  Basically I wanted
to try them out and see if they were really worth switching too.. and I found that they did save some space.   At least enough to make me want to use them for all my clothes. :o)
So I figured out how many hangers that I actually needed, and purchased more.

  Well.. They have been hanging out in my closet since.. until I finally decided it was time to put them
to use and stream line the closets!

Here is a peak at the before of the hanger situation..


A hodge podge of hangers..

While I had switched several over at this point, it was long overdue to actually use the
additional hangers I had purchased.

So I went through the entire closet, and got to work.

Here is the after:



So much better.
We got everyone's hangers coordinated in color, and I ended up with 2 large bags of
hangers to donate.
Plus while I was at it, found some clothes to donate as well.  Win, Win!

It is so much better to look at a organized closet. :0)

I am debating some idea's on what to do in our master closet to organize it further,
considering making some built in's etc.

Any tips on organizing your closet? Please share.
