SO, here I am at Week 2. I put this mood board together to show you how a few things have changed.
I have managed to buy some white paint and we are prepping the walls for painting.
I have been casually shopping and found a few nice items that are serving to inspire.
I was lucky to find this work of art that gives me some direction as far as accent colors. I might paint the frame white; haven’t decided yet. We go to the beach a lot although I have never seen the Oregon coast this busy so I am not sure where this beach is. This reproduction of a photograph is quite large and is helping to set the tone for the space.
Here is another fun find – I found this mid century lamp at GOODWILL – it has a wonderful white crackle finish on it. It is a decent size and I found a Nate Berkus lamp shade from Target that compliments the shape and the bronzy metal base.
I have been battling with whether or not black and white is too high contrast and I might tire of it so I have decided to keep things light on the walls but bring in some softer elements and pops of color so it feels cozy and inviting like these fabulous baskets from TARGET again by Nate Berkus.
I don’t think we can get our wall to wall carpet completed in 5 weeks as the waiting list for installation is a few months out via HOME DEPOT. They have decent wall to wall carpeting options for hard core use in this area and they also have 12 mths interest free financing so that’s looking like the way to go.
(WALL TO WALL CARPET..will most likely not be installed in time)
I am leaning toward painting our heirloom dresser white and I like the sand/tan drawer fronts of this piece from THE LAND OF NOD. I think it is a grasscloth type texture on there which really looks terrific. Might be less likely to get tired of it if we keep it neutral.
Sure would love to find some nice knobs to modernize our dresser. Any ideas? Love the ones on this piece.
I have also been inventorying our art and family photos as I am working on a salon style gallery of photos and art. I need to several items taken to the framer to spruce up the mattes, get glass for some frames, etc.
Thanks for stopping by!
