ROOM 19 and 27

This January during the lull we decided to take on a few renovations. They often start with one week of work planned and it slowly turns into 6 weeks of reno. These two king rooms were badly in need of a refresh and after getting some energy back post-baby I figured this was as good a time as any. I went with light blues, yellow, stone colors and chocolate brown. I tried to re-use as much as possible while replacing all of the bedding and window treatments. I have quite a few vintage finds as well. I am still doing the very last finishing touches and being type A I can’t photograph until I am completely done. SO stay tuned for photos in the next couple of weeks!

Cheers!
