Last Tuesday, I showed you the renovation we started on our home. This week, the outside, and electrical and plumbing on the inside are complete. Today, it’s ready for inspection so we can move forward with insulation and drywall. If you are thinking, gosh that was fast, you are right. We are way ahead of schedule, which I know rarely happens on a project of this size. Trust me, I am counting my blessings. I am also starting to go through the details of our space and I wanted to share it with you. First, Griff’s room. **Spoiler Alert** We are going with a space theme. We have chosen a nice blue/gray wall paint and a neutrally colored, square textured carpet.
We have found some really fun wall decals on etsy by Studio Wall Art. There are so many fun things we can do with this theme and we are not sure exactly what we are going to get from the collection, but we know it’s the direction we want to go.
In the master bedroom, we are looking to create a calm, quiet space. We have decided on a neutral tan with blue undertones to compliment the blue in Griff’s room. We are also using the same neutral textured carpet throughout the upstairs.
We have also purchased these cool lamps for either side of the bed. They were a bit of a splurge but I think are going to be worth it. At first, I was a bit worried about the tans matching the colors in my quilt. I really want to use the quilt I’ve been working on in this space. I find, that in decorating, as long as you choose everything you love, it will all go together. I put the swatches next to my quilt (which is coming right along) and it matches perfectly. Funny how that always happens!
So it’s coming right along. I am SO anxious to get things down and see everything come to life. Are there any spaces you have been working on? Any new DIY projects?
