True Colours Thursday - Beige

The color for this week's True Colours Thursday is BEIGE. Not an easy color to show in font color. Almost every wall of our house is painted some shade of builder's beige except for the few that have wallpaper. Mom hates it but it does make decorating a bit easier. Here are a few of the beige items we found.

The bedspread on Dad's parents' mahogany bed.

The "good" china - Lenox Moonspun.

One of the dining room chairs.

The parlor's sofa.

The foyer lamp and doily.

A cute ladybug pillow.

The relaxation zone.

Dakota's cache of bones.

Phantom's Gentle Leader - can you tell how much he LOVES it?

And of course, TD's bed.

This is a fun game to play. If you want to play, just visit Blue and find out how.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hey Dakota, what a great stash of bones! Very nice beiges - I like how all the dogs got into the act.

The bed pic wins - looks like someone is fighting their eyelids ; )

Your bones looks a lot clean than ours do. Ours have lots of fur embedded in the chew marks.

We have gentle leaders to but ours are black so they blend into our fur. Momma thinks that if we can't see them, they won't bother us as much. She's wrong!

Woo, Phantom, you need to talk to your Siberian Union Rep. Dakota has bones and Thunder has a bed and you have a - Gentle Leader??? Somehow, you got a bad deal there.

Poopsie aka Blue said...

Woo! I like the quilt best, of course... or TD's bed. 'Course those bones are looking mighty tempting....

Mason Dixie said...

You have a very nice house, thanks for sharing all your beige.

Deetz said...

O my mum is loving the parlor and that bedspread she says is too die for.....
We are going to get hit really hard with the blizzard and all my toys are scattered everywhere outside....we are about 2 1/2 hours from Overland Park, mum works in Wichita and we live in Belle Plaine, which is about a 45 minute drive South of Wichita....closer to the Oklahoma border....Mum is freaked out about all this snow and getting to work tomorrow. I think my daddy will stay home with us dogs....I will send you some extra snow if you need it.

Pawtastic post! Love the bed! You all did great in finding things the color of beige. Mom especially loved the china (that is her mom's pattern), and she likes the decorations on the wall over the Parlor Sofa. And finally... she wants to know regarding the ladybug... are you a Phi Mu?

Tracey and Huffle said...

We don't have much in the way of beige in our house. I think you've done well with that selection!

Your Parlor is lovely.

It looks like pretty much everyone in your house has something beige, although I think Phantom got the short end of the stick on that one. I'm going to have to send him a beige toy or something.
