It's easier to tour the house a couple rooms at a time. Any advice you have on the decor would be much appreciated. We'll start in the the entry way and front sitting room...
The last time you saw the entry, it probably looked liked this.
Here's Andrew beginning the wood floor...and kindly flexing his forearms.
And this is the final result as of a couple days ago.
Since then, I have sold the ugly table and have different plans for the wall.
We could build a prettier table and display something like this.
But I will probably end up doing something like that white shelf with hooks for coats. More practical.
Or a shelf like the white one in this picture (but with no bench), and I'd have Andrew make it real nice and rustic with a lot of burn through.
Now moving on to the sitting room...you probably last saw it like this.
Here is what it looked like on moving day.
And this is from today.
You'd think it would be more put together after a month. But out of necessity, this room has become the gathering/storage room for all things decorative that I have no idea where to put yet. But I'm working on it!
And I'm gathering inspiration. I'd like to hang something big over the couch, get a light colored area rug with some pops of fun color, and maybe some sheer, white drapes.
This room conveys the calm, comfortable feel I am hoping for. I like the rug, the wood, the big pillows, and the fun pops of color.
From this room, I like the neutral feel: browns, grays, whites, and wood. And the size of the canvas above the couch. That area above my couch is screaming for something similar in size. I can use a mirror, a framed vintage map, or slap some paint on a large, blank canvas I have stored in the closet.
This would be an easy DIY painting idea
Or something like this...in whatever colors I chose.
This quilty looking canvas is fun. It would be easy too.
What about a map made from paint splotches? Love this.
Abstract art with paint and tape. Though I wouldn't make it metallic or quite so bold.
Instead I can make use of the pile of pallet wood leftover from the dining room ceiling. I like the painted map but I could also paint words or a deer head silhouette??
I even have my vintage door propped in the garage waiting for inspiration to strike me as how to use it.
So there you have the entry and front room...with my ideas for the future that I'd love your input on. More tour coming later!
