A Peek Inside

I-Needa-Name-Contest is still going on. Go here for more details.

***
Due to popular demand...a few pictures of the rooms I've painted so far. You'll notice I am back to using my "bold" color schemes. lol.

The master bathroom is probably the most stunning in deep rust red. I painted the kitchen/living area a warm taupe which works pretty well. There are more rooms that I've painted, but I'd like to wait until I have a few more things done, like blinds and new carpet before I show you those.

We had some friends over on the weekend. Mel, my friend with those unbelievable decorator genes gave me her stamp of approval. She saw the before and I think I impressed her with the after. And I did it all with color.


This kitchen has been a dream! I never knew cooking could be fun. In this picture you get a peek at the living area beyond. I should mention that both the living area and kitchen were painted in a gawd-awful dark brown. I couldn't wait to get rid of that. --I'll post some living room pictures at a later date.


Another view of the kitchen. I'm told it's a "professional" kitchen because of the appliances that live there. Good! I need all the help I can get.

A very nice ball and claw tub. Wish I had the time to lounge in it. The glass blocks to the right frame the walk-in shower with dual shower heads. Heaven!

This is the largest bathroom we've ever had. His and hers vanities. No more fighting for mirror space. lol. The doors you see in this pic go into a massive walk-in closet. That closet cinched the deal! A marriage saver for sure.
.
I love my house! It took nearly a year to find it, but it was worth the stress and suffering.

It's beautiful and I love that color on your bathroom walls.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to one and all!

Thank you, Dru. It's a work in progress for sure. But a fun one.

Merry Christmas, sweetie! Thank you for stopping by (and entering the contest too).

I LOVE your bathroom! The tub ... and the shower... and the closet.

**sigh**

The kitchen color is gorgeous. I'm a big fan of deep browns. You should see my house :-)

Post more pictures, woman! lol

They say bathrooms and kitchens sell a house and that's certainly true. Even though this poor house had hideous color and many pieces (like ceiling fans and chandeliers) were stolen before it went on the market, I could see its potential.
