Mural in the Bathroom!

Mural in the Bathroom!

I. found. the. cutest. wallpaper. It’s from Anthropologie and it’s crazy expensive ($548!) but it’s a lot cheaper than getting a real mural done.  And I absolutely love the garden design. Yes, it’s feminine, but it’s not uber-girly.  And since we didn’t find out Evie’s gender before she was born and decorated the nursery in...
Freshly Painted Garden Shed

Freshly Painted Garden Shed

The weather cooperated and last weekend David painted the garden shed!!!  It’s all done now, and I love how it ended up. The trim color is called “Tempered Sage” by valspar and we picked it out because, well, it was on the same paint chip as the main color we chose.  And the contractors were...
Hallway Refresh

Hallway Refresh

We’ve made some much-needed changes to our hallway! The very first thing we did to it was replace the ceiling two winters ago because the old one was sagging and probably going to collapse soon.  Then we took down the wallpaper (gag me with a fork) and had the floors and steps refinished when they...
Paint Colors of 2015

Paint Colors of 2015

New year, new paint colors!  Am I right?  Here’s a look at what top paint companies/ magazines/ decorators/ color-minded people are calling the paint colors of 2015! Pantone   To me, Marsala looks like a light red wine– a claret maybe?– and frankly isn’t too exciting.  I was kind of disappointed by Pantone’s choice.  It’s...
Painting the Family Room- Part 3

Painting the Family Room- Part 3

Hi everyone!  Here is the “after” for the paint in the family room.  Remember we chose between these colors?   And the final verdict was C2’s “Shine.”  Then our family came and painted most of the room for us!  (Thank you again for that!!) They did most of the work but after they left David primed...
Master Bedroom = Painted!

Master Bedroom = Painted!

It’s days like these that I realize how blessed I am. Two of my aunties came over and spent the night.  In just over 24 hours, with the help of my mom who was here most of that time, they organized our study (aka “clutter room”), organized/ cleaned our dining room, took off the wallpaper...
Inspirational Bedrooms

Inspirational Bedrooms

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what color to paint our master bedroom.   At first I thought a relaxing, calming blue (that mimicked the calm Blue Ridge Mountains outside the window) would be perfect.  David and I picked up a sample of Benjamin Moore’s Wickham Gray and painted a splotch on the walls....
Nursery Update- Walls Done, Doorway In!

Nursery Update- Walls Done, Doorway In!

  Progress in the nursery! First of all, the wall are all done and painted!  I chose a color for the walls from Mythic Paint again (just like the ceiling) called Ivory Pillar.  It’s basically off-white with a hint of beige to it.   Here are some photos of the painted nursery that I snapped...
Painting the Nursery- A Family Affair

Painting the Nursery- A Family Affair

We’ve been making progress in the nursery and I’m so excited to share with you! Above is the guest bedroom we decided to convert to the baby’s room.  It’s the bedroom furthest from the master bedroom.  The only changes we made to it when we moved in was replacing the ceiling fan with one that...
Guest Bathroom Update

Guest Bathroom Update

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there!!!!!  I’m so excited to join your club soon.  🙂 Things have really been happening here in the past few days.  The faucet for the vessel sink finally arrived!  The sink is installed in the bathroom (along with the toilet), and we hung the mirror and installed...
Picking a Yellow Paint

Picking a Yellow Paint

Poor husband didn’t know there was more than one shade of yellow.  (I’m going to blow his mind later in life when we start to figure out a good white paint color for the master bedroom.) So when I decided I wanted to paint our family room yellow, he just sort of assumed we’d head...
