With Spring always comes the desire to spruce up our house.
Actually, who am I kidding? I'm a designer, that desire is constant!
Regardless, Spring seems to be when we do most of our work.
I mentioned earlier this week our new kitchen accent wall. I had originally planned on painting the wall behind our oven a great orange color. But the more I thought about it, I decided to do the window wall in a light, gray blue.
But to appreciate the after, you have to see the before.
After! We LOVE it.
I love how it makes it feel like the wall and sky are all one. I am all about natural light.
(Ironically these photos were taken at night but you know what I mean ;) )
But now I really want new countertops...
(We used Tinsel Beam by Valspar)
Our next newest addition is a rug in the living room.
Last week I caught wind that Rugs USA was having a 75% off sale. (PS it is still going on...)
I had been toying with the idea of a new rug lately and this was just the push I needed.
I am BEYOND obsessed with it.
It is SO bright and amazing.
But now we need new pillows...darn
Floyd is also a huge fan and hasn't stopped laying on it. The moment I unrolled it he promptly laid down on it.
Thirdly, a few weeks ago I put up a new gallery wall in the stairwell.
Sorry Mom, I totally spray painted those candle holders from my grandparents...
I love gallery walls and I really love walls filled with friends, family and travel pictures.
One of my other most favorite ways to spruce up your house in the Spring is to paint you front door...a super bright color is even better! It is wasn't a sort of big undertaking, I would change ours every season.
