DISCOVERING MY STYLE

I'm still sharing about how I discovered a design style I wanted to bring to our home. With a limited budget, no DIY skills, and unable to change some things, I was able to move forward and begin to get the look I've wanted.

The next step I took was to have the room painted. Since we live in a historical mansion that is owned by the city and they pay for the repairs we had to wait quite a while to have this done. Finally there was room in the budget to fix many cracks that had been appearing in the walls over time so they would then have to paint over it. So I had them continue and paint the one wall that hadn't been done before along with the others.

The white wall in the living room above was previously a dark wood color. I'm slowly changing all the colors from blue/rust/mustard yellows to shades of blue/white/creams. The upholstered furniture comes next. The living room ceilings are 14 feet high so it feels even bigger than it is.






What is that notebook and paper doing on that sofa? Guess i didn't see it before because the color fit into the decor. Oh well, the transformation continues...

  1. Looks like you found your style and decor and I'm loving it ! The living room sectional is wonderful, color and style and it looks so inviting.
    I also love your pretty dining room and all fits perfectly in a historical home as yours is.

  2. I really admire the changes you are making. The blue adds color and at the same time makes it restful. I know my style is always evolving and it is fun to make changes especially on a budget.

    1. I've always liked blue but was afraid to go all out with it thinking it might feel too "cold'. But I'm loving it!
