It’s been a while since I have updated you on our home renovation. If you haven’t been following along, you can hop over and see our before pictures. I’m finding that renovations take a LOT of time and effort. I am also not the best interior designer and second guess every decision. I’m still seething that I hadn’t gone to Shuttercaft sooner to buy the perfect blinds. This showed my hesitation was not exactly compatible with the interior design world. It was time for me to do something about this! I decided it was time to hire Aryn from Oyster Creek Studios. I love her aesthetic and her own personal home is gorgeous.
Below you can see the inspo boards Aryn created for me. I wanted my home to feel light and open yet remain child friendly. We are keeping our dark leather sofa but adding pops of white in the curtains. Our fireplace is a beige cement and I wanted it to pop against the light grey paint. I found this awesome paint from a company called Romabio. They sell limewash paint for brick and cement. The best part is it can be washed off up to seven days after being painted!
LIVING ROOM HOME RENOVATION DETAILS
This is the tile we will be putting in the powder bathroom. I wanted to keep everything as timeless and neutral as possible. As much as I love cement tile, I’m afraid it will be out of style in 5-8 years.
And remember, when renovating a home it’s so important to keep an up-to-date To Do List. Otherwise, you risk losing track of everything in the chaos! Here’s ours for reference:
- Install hardware on cabinets
- Rip out counter top in laundry room
- Design a locker/mudroom for laundry room
- Replace wood flooring downstairs
- Install tile in laundry room & powder bath
- Find wallpaper for powder bath
- Lighting for powder bath
- Have wingback chairs recovered
- Have curtains made for living room
- Decor items for living room
As you can see we have a lot of work still ahead of us on this home renovation. Next month we will begin the process of having our tile ripped up. My entire house will basically look like E.T. when he’s in that contamination room. Plastic and dust will be everywhere and we will be living in a sea of plastic.
Wish us luck! Send wine and snacks.
