It took us around a year to find our house. And by all means, the house we finally decided on was not perfect. However, it had the foundation we were looking for with some charm.
I was recently asked, “How could you see past the green shag carpet and the yellow spongepaint?” And my reaction was, “We just had a vision and executed it.” That’s really all you need… a decent eye, or someone to help you. We hired a Sherwin Williams designer to help us pick out paint colors, which was useful when we were totally overwhelmed with paint and miss-matched carpet. We decided on SW Bungalow Beige for the walls and SW Pure White for the mantel and trim.
The accessories were a combination of items we had on hand (couch & coffee table), HomeGoods (pillows and curtains), center coffee table (a vintage window made by my Father – I will blog about that sometime), and the vintage media unit (see previous post). And finally, we had new carpet installed from Lowe’s. See below for the transformation!
