    I like the color combination of the mirror with the mint. When my elderly little girl kitty couldn’t get on my bed I got steps that were made for dogs. At the time I had three 20 year old cats. They loved it.

    1. Aww that is so sweet and how incredible to have three 20 year old kitties.

  2. Yeah, mint is totally addicting! I honestly can’t wait to see your library wall and giveaway tomorrow!

  3. First – I totally agree with the mint choice. I think teal would have been too matchy, matchy.
    Second – we bit the bullet and hired a therapist for our dog. Lord help me. We had to do something, and this guys seemed like the answer. He’s very Cesar Milan-ish. we’ve had our first session and with only 4 days of practice under our belt things already seem better. And believe me, if Diefenbaker can’t get up the stairs at some point I am sure I will be building him a ramp!

    1. Yay, you know that I had the therapist books for my cats. I think that’s awesome and I love you for doing this for Diefenbaker (love saying his name). You’ll probably end up needing a forklift for him though LOL.

  4. Love your pretty mint update, it’s such a fresh color with the brown! And the ramp ~ you are the absolute sweetest!!

  5. Your kitties are so lucky to have you and the mint looks awesome and fresh! Yay to spray paint! Stay cool and have a good weekend!

  6. The smallest detail changes can make the biggest impact! Love what you have done.
    We have been pet less since we lost our family poodle many, many years ago…but I can relate. You are really not cuckoo, just a loving pet owner!

  7. I do love all of the decorating and changes that you make. I am so impressed that you do much of it yourself. Most of all, I love the kitty-ramp. so practical! I also wanted to make a correction to some mis-information that I gave about cat-food premix: it used to be called FELINE INSTINCTS or FELINE FUTURES. It is now called TC FELINE, http://www.tcfeline.com.
    It is still located on Salt Spring Island, just across from Washington State. Since my diabetic kitty passed about 5 years ago, I have not had another furry love-but it is time and I will go this tcfeline route. I apologize for not being up-to-date with information. Thank you.

  8. I’m sorry, but the ramp is the most darling part of the whole room… without question. πŸ™‚

    1. Don’t be sorry, I’m so glad you like it! Most people give me a “are you freakin serious?” πŸ˜‰

  9. Sometimes little updates make huge impact, and this one does…I love it!

    And I totally don’t think you are crazy. We do anything for our little furbabies, don’t we? SO cute!! πŸ™‚

  10. If you have pets and you love them, you naturally do what is best for them. You have such darlings.

    I like the mint just fine. And if you had not said spray paint, I ‘would’ have said to mix a 1/4 of the teal into the mint, but since…. and I think the straight teal might have been a tadge too much also.

  11. Omg…I love you…the ramp for your furry babies is the best! They are so lucky to have you! πŸ˜‰ I think mint was the way to go…I love that it picks up some of the mint colored leaves in the pillow in your chair. It’s perfect! And I can tell you are a girl after my own heart with all the pillows. I love them all and your room looks great…never even noticed the blurriness you were talking about. Think we are our own worst critic sometimes because your photos are fab! Jesse @ Scout & Nimble

    1. I’m praying that somebody will take care of me this way when I’m old πŸ˜‰
      And I think you are right, we are our own worst critics, but that’s a good thing I think!

  12. Looks so great! Just painting those frames made such the difference!

  13. Your posts always make me smile Julia!
    First, I think you could easily go with either color and the frames would be great! The pillows pull it all together showing off all your beautiful hues-
    I love the little change, it really does make a big difference.
    AND the RAMP! Love it!!!! We have 3 tiny pups and Reba-the-Cat in the bed with us at night and I love it too!
    Have a great weekend xoxo

  14. Love the update Julia, your room is beautiful! πŸ™‚ & mint is lovely for the frames! right now I’m really not liking our brown sectional in our living room, I would love to swap it with the one from the basement but it’s getting hard convincing hubby! πŸ™‚ & love what you do for your cat! we did something similar for our puppie Angel, he was scared of jumping when he was a baby, so we bought a small ‘pouf’ just for him to help him jump, he learned! now, I got him my son’s pouf in the living room so he can sleep there! πŸ™‚ I think pets are like family members and we do anything for these little ones! πŸ™‚

  15. I think mint was a good choice for the frames so you have a few layers of color in the room. And yes, I am still in the process of “de-browning” my own home. (I went crazy with a tri-color brown palette after we first moved in.)

    You could have your daughter do a fun teal design on the kitty ramp.

    Have a wonderful weekend, Julia!

    I love your bed. Can you tell me where you got it from? Thanks!

  17. What Ikea strips did you use to hold the ramp to the bed?

    1. Hi there, they are Ikea shelf brackets that I bent slightly but they don’t have them anymore. Sorry!
