Friday Five: Team Colors

February 3, 2012

This weekend is the Super Bowl. You doing anything fun?

I was trying to think of a timely Friday Five based on “the big game.” (Have you noticed how advertisers can’t say “Super Bowl” because it’s trademarked? Super annoying.) My first thought was “Patriotic things that are Giant.”

But that seemed kind of disconnected from my usual fare. Not to mention, would scare the pants off my friend Beth.

So then I thought about the fact that I’m not really all that into either of the teams playing. I love New York. I have family in Boston. Eli seems like a nice enough guy. Tom Brady is hot. So maybe I’ll just go with the standby girl method of rooting for the team with the best colors.

But of course, the two teams wear the exact SAME colors.

WHICH, in a long roundabout way brings me to this week’s Friday Five: Red, White and Blue Rooms

study / kitchen / bedroom / living room / bathroom

I’d never really considered Red, White and Blue as a viable decorating option, but these rooms do it pretty dang well. What do you think?

Enjoy the game on Sunday. And the commercials. And Madonna. Oh, and if you’re curious, check out Tom and Gisele’s quaint new home in LA and Eli’s completely underwhelming condo in Hoboken.  (I’d love to know what you think about them too…)

    There’s a football game this weekend? :-)
    We’re supposed to have sun and mild temps. Will be shopping for tile (newest hobby) and skating along the Eastbank Esplanade of the Willamette River (in Portland). Which (I hope) will be gloriously free of crowds because they’re all watching the game!

      Sounds like a fun weekend! I read that Sunday is a great night to get into restaurants where it’s hard to get a reservation… Hoping for an empty riverbank for you!

    Maybe red white and blue is worth trying out. It is an election year.

    Your titles are genius! :) And I think you and I must have similar taste, because I always love the photos you feature.

    Go Patriots!

    I love your thought process here. :)

    Something about the kitchen in that second photo… I love that upper cabinet! Now were can I find me one of those…

      I know! That iron and glass cabinet is amazeballs. I love it too.
