I thought that I'd give you guys a peek at what we've been working on. Now, please know that I fully realize that these rooms are not complete. They still need lots of accessorizing, wall hangings, draperies, decor, etc. But, this is a realistic view of what they look like now.
Here are some before shots of our bathroom:
You'll notice that it is rosy peach. EVERYWHERE! The floors, the walls, the ceiling, the cabinets. Everything is pretty much the same color.
We painted the walls a shade called thunder cloud. It's kind of a mixture of gray, light blue, and light green. It turned out well, I think. I also restained the cabinets in the bathroom.
Still to come: decor, window treatment, crown molding, a chandelier over the tub. I'd love to get rid of that huge mirror on the wall, but I don't really know how, short of hanging new drywall, and I'm just not willing to take that on at this point.
It has the same rosy peach as the bathroom. Also, it has a big mirror. The previous owners had an unusual affinity for mirrors.
We painted it a very light blue shade. I like it. It's fresh and relaxing. I wasn't sure at first, but it is growing on me.
Please pay no attention to the cup sitting on top of the bed. That's Brian's drink perch.
Still to come: decor, area rug, drapes, crown molding
Media Room (aka Man Cave) BEFORE:
It's no surprise that this room also has peach walls and a huge mirror.
Media Room AFTER:
Brian is the designer of this room. Well, it was my idea to stripe, but he got the final say. I told him that this room was all his! But, I LOVE it, and I think that we'll spend an enormous amount of time in this room.
