add curtains--simple ones that can hang from clip rings. if you can sew, fabric.com is the best place to get dupioni silk, which is a casual silk, in my opinion. all you'd have to do is hem the top and bottom and buy clip rings at the hardware store. a nice taupe silk might be a compromise for your boyfriend's neutral preference.

maybe some brightly-colored chair pads, or a bright table runner in chartreuse?

lose the lamps, get a cool fixture from ikea.

i like a rug under dining areas as it protects the wood underneath from scratches. good luck!

Those sushi pillows are hilarious!! My girls would love them for their toy kitchen set.

Makes me think my regular old square pillows in my shop are nothing but dull! :) Cynthia

I would so paint them. I had similar nasty oak cabinets in my last home and I never regretted painting them. You can see a pic here on my blog. There are great resources on the net for how to paint wood--sand, prime, sand, paint, etc.

I love your couch Ashley! Where is it from? Great tweed blue color. I never had my own place....went straight from roommates to marriage. What must it be like? Congrats!
