Shortly after we moved into the house, John and I painted our bedroom. Initially we spent lots of time debating the color. We settled on what we thought was a light tan, but it turned out to be more of a creamy yellow.While we weren’t thrilled with the color we thought we could learn to love it. However, after a year we decided that we officially hated it. This time we put a little less thought into it and se
There isn't much about our kitchen that we really "love." It needs all new cabinets, appliances that match, some tile with a little more personality, and a whole different configuration. However we do love 2 things about it: the skylight(who doesn't love a skylight) and the pocket door.

We bring the master bedroom up to speed with a coat of clean fresh yellowish beige paint, and some accessories with pops of teal to balance out the warm palette of the carpet, walls and wooden furniture.
The laundry room finally gets less ugly. We patch the walls and paint everything including the exposed pipes. We also install some ClosetMaid wire shelves that really pull the whole room together by framing the washer and dryer, and providing the easy access storage you expect in a utility / laundry room.
