Living in a multi-level split level home, we don’t have many hallways in our home. In fact, I can’t even really call it a hallway… it’s a stairway really, but I’d like to give it some color. I decided to take a look at some colors within the Sherwin-Williams visualizer this week to see how dramatic a hallway can look depending on it’s color.
You can go truly bold with shades of rose and orange or you can go as natural as beige or light brown. I decided to use one of their images and colored the hallway wall a variety of colors for you to see the difference.
About 12 years ago we bought a futon and it’s still going strong. Although I’ve never really slept on it I have spent many days using it for reading. Overnight visitors have always told me they’ve never had a better night’s sleep than the nights they slept on our futon. Now that my brother and his family are preparing to move out, we have an extra family room and we’re not quite sure what to do with it as far as furniture goes. The idea came about to purchase another futon or a sofa bed in case we have several visitors at one time with us.

Both Stacey and Rosemary love damask, so I decided to dedicate this week’s inspiration design board to this lovely pattern. What’s not to love? It’s elegant, and versatile. It’s a classic pattern many interior designs love. More and more designers are now using damask in a variety of ways from wallpaper to rugs.

I’m not looking for a new bed frame, but I decided to look at beds and recently found out how many different types there are. So, this week, I decided to feature some sleigh bed frames for you. Enjoy!

Can’t believe it’s already September. Felt like only yesterday when 2011 began. Now that it’s September, I’m so excited because Fall is coming! I love Autumn… it’s my favorite season of the year. Why? I simply love the cool weather – not hot and not too cold. I love wearing my Fall clothing – bringing out the light jackets and sweaters along with the occasional scarf and gloves. Going apple picking. Most of all, I truly enjoy watching the Fall colors change in nature … watching the leaves change colors. It’s absolutely beautiful. So, I decided to dedicate this weeks Living with Color post to an inspiration of Fall colors.
MAN I have been MIA big time! well, for very good reason! We have been chuggin’ along on the house as fast as we can so that we are in by the time our little one is here in Dec. and we have been fortunate enough to have had some help come our way in the form on Morgan’s parents and my cousin..who spent the last week painting, assembling our PAIN-IN-THE-ASS Ikea kitchen, jimmy-rigging our beautiful stainless steel farmhouse sink, pulling all the wood trim we already painted and replacing with new trim, having our hardwood floors installed, painting almost EVERY room in the house (we have 2 walls left in the living room) and a few more odds and ends that I think I might have forgotten along the way. I have photos of EVERYTHING and many planned blog entries for you to see of our adventures but I just wanted to say hi and let you know Im still here, pregnant, remodeling, and moving right along.
