This house had a plain house with blah walls and oak cabinets and carpet. I think the color is some kind of brown. It just made everything seem so heavy in there. For the sake of sounding like a crazy house-whisperer, I know that’s not what the house wanted to be. It was yearning for lightness. It was such a honor to be able to decorate this house and make it feel like new for the owners.
There was carpet in the living room when we bought it.Yep. That’s peel and stick. Don’t ask.
See how open it is between the two rooms? It seemed really hard to place furniture to me. Open concept is great unless there aren’t enough walls to put furniture on, and the room isn’t big enough to float furniture in. Little houses are always a design challenge.
Adding beadboard made a huge difference! We used Sherwin-Williams Alabaster.
It was like a breath of fresh air.
Then there is my favorite feature in the entire house!!!The french door room dividers.
I thought they still let in light,but gave the space a little more definition. And I love how it gives it a very cottage living room feel!
Then after everything was painted, the floors went in!
Are you ready for a photo bomb of how well this house cleaned up? I know the homeowners are going to love it!
Vintage furniture stages so well in this home! It just seems to blend right in! It has a great cottagecore feel.
What do you think????!!
I think it feels like a vacation home. It’s so restful, it should be on a lake somewhere.
It’s so clean,uncluttered, and…quiet.
