New Pics

It's been a minute since I've updated some of the house pics. Things change around here and I don't always remember to update everyone. Since I've last posted, right before my Mom came to visit in November we had the downstairs painted, which wasn't all that exciting, but it sure did freshen the place up. The downstairs used to be a flat sheen in a Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray. Basically what the builders used. I wanted the paint to be a Satin Sheen and so I applied Paper White by Benjamin Moore *same as upstairs hallways. I loved it up there so figured it would work downstairs too.


Some close ups of the artwork too -mostly a mix of Etsy finds, original sibling art (thanks @Retrolyte) and Grandma's artwork.  If you're going to put a gallery in your house, I highly recommend mixing new art with old and mixing up the frames. Also using things that you love and make you happy. 




I also updated the rug, since the old one had a lot of damage from puppy nails. The potted plant in the corner was a holiday find and is still going strong. Bonus, my Mom helped me plant it while she were here.




A few furniture updates to the living room have been made as well and Joe and I slapped up some peel and stick wallpaper behind the TV.  Doesn't it look like real painted brick?  The windows were all trimmed with craftsman style wood trim a while back but I never got around to showing you.


I found the floral chairs from CB2 and I just love them. They add a nice vintage Italian charm to the space and definitely are the new focal point.



I found a new large area rug as well. Having a new puppy just really was a doozy for our floor coverings. Plus the old one was around for a while and had seen better days.





The black leather sofa from CB2 as well is called "Seville" and is made of Buffalo leather. The quality is suburb and should last forever.

I love how bright and clean everything feels now, especially in January when all the holiday decor goes and you're left with a clean palette again.  And someone over there in the corner is looking like she needs a little fun!


I'm going to spend some of January photographing some other rooms that haven't been shown in a while. As well as spend time thinking about the Master Bedroom color. 2020 seems like it's going to be a good year.
