Living Room Part 2!

Does anyone else feel like they can never just finish one room?  Well I am determined to complete our living room come hell or high water.  This is a little bit of my inspiration but I think I need some more color!  I would also like to add three floating shelves and create a gallery wall.  Other DIY on the list is paint our dining room and our small third bedroom this winter!  Look out Home Depot and Ikea here I come!

Master Bedroom Inspo – Part 1

Months ago I painted our master bedroom a dark navy.  It turned out really well and I even put stripes on the back wall using a the same color but in high gloss.  I will admit I did not document this well so I didn’t blog about it previously.  I’m sure like a lot of women in America I moved on to other projects through out the house and well sort of forgot about attempting to finish the bedroom.  Well I got back on track after a labor day furniture sale perked my interest and motivated me to finally get an “adult bed“.  It’s a sueded material with a nail head design on the headboard.  I really love it and it is extremely sturdy!  My next project is to create curtains behind the bed which surround an unsightly chimney.  Here is a little mood board that will hopefully keep me on track!


Color that I chose for the walls – painting tip (use aluminum foil on the tray so you don’t ruin it and can reuse it just throw away the foil when your done! )

Bedroom Inspo


navy is the new black…1st round

Last weekend we decided to repaint the bathroom.  When it hit me I needed to redo our bedroom.  I had been toying with the idea but I was set on finishing the living room first.  Well I’m still on the search for the most amazing oversized club chair that won’t break the bank (more on that in a few weeks).  After painting the bathroom and in between Pinterest breaks I found the inspiration that I simply needed to have.  I had my hubby take down the odd shelves that were on one side of my bed and the vision just starting pouring out.  I knew I wanted to go with either a deep tone probably in the blue family or a very light grey to contrast with our woodwork white woodwork (that also needed repainted).


Do you like the weird concrete chimney thing in the middle of our accent wall??

On Tuesday night we headed out to Home Depot after I spotted a must have color in the HGTV magazine (ps if you haven’t seen this mag you need to get your hands on it).  It was Deep Irish Sea by Ralph Lauren and it was so amazing but me being reluctant I went ahead with my original plan and purchased a very light grey sample as well.  We got it on the walls as soon as we got home and knew that deep navy cobalt was the winner!



Needless to say I painted the entire room and wood work this past weekend and the color against the white is so dreamy and romantic.  I am still in the process of finishing the accent wall so more on that next week.  I am starting to collect things to make the room cozy and more like our own.  I created an inspiration board of things that I’m feeling for our room.

What are your must have’s for having a soft and serene place to relax?
