Greeny,wow!You did a great job.Especially on that living room.So calm now.I love that you gave the magazines in the bathroom a spot instead of fighting to keep them off the floor.

We just moved in to our new house 2 weeks ago and we did the living room first. Dh made built in bookshelves again because we loved them so much in our old house for storage.

The kids toys are in here at the moment (in baskets) but that'll change as the rest of the house is reno'd.

Here's the before and the after.

Ooh, limette, I already commented on your rooms (gorgeous!), but I looked at your blog and your house is amazing. Like, so, so amazing, inside and out. It's the kind of house dh and I always drive by and say, "I wish we lived in a house like that!" I love it!! =)

Thanks! It's a ton of work and money though. The floors slope in a dozen different directions...it's been neglected for a long time. Lol that's why we were able to afford it!

There are so many houses like this in the area, it's crazy. This was the only one that had more than an acre that was in our budget. Lots under 100k on an acre or less.

it just needs trim and a few things. i'll probably edit with an update at that point.

Wow, your bathroom is gorgeous! Love how it turned out. And I'm totally putting a chandelier in mine when we remodel. DH hates them and won't agree to one in any other room. Not that he knows one is going in there yet...LOL.

Love the purple. LOVE. I'm about to do a similar color in my guest room.

thanks!! i was sitting in Home Depot just looking around and i saw a display and that colour was on the display. surprisingly, when DH came back from whatever he was doing, he agreed that he liked it too!! it's SUCH a pretty colour.
the chandelier was a bit different. i had a much girlier pinkish one in mind but DH didn't like it. we compromised on this one. it's has a sophistication the other didn't.

Aw, thanks!


What purple is it? I've got 3 up on the wall right now and I think I've made a decision with VINTAGE GRAPE by Behr but I'm not 100% sure and I really like your walls.

Behr-Peruvian Violet
Another Behr purple i love is Heirloom Orchid. the dark stripes (there was a striped wall) in my old bedroom (we've since moved) were that colour. i plan to do the same thing in this house when our bedroom is renovated.

NICE!

I was thinking just this morning about how it would be so much easier to clear out our spaces if we could just do each others' -- someone else could clear off my problem space in about 20 seconds flat. Myself: I can't get past the wrapper to remind me to buy something (vs. just putting it on our list) or the magazine I want to give to a friend.
