So I guess you’re questioning what we’ve been as much as on the home… we’re virtually carried out with the nursery, which we’ll share at a later date, however within the meantime, we additionally determined to spontaneously redo our household room. You’ve already seen the TV wall, however now for the remaining…
I assume I talked about earlier than that the household room is a transformed storage, subsequently it had some unlucky points, the primary one being a collection of pipes protruding of one of many partitions. We spend plenty of time on this room and there was no approach I was sharing a room with these pipes for for much longer. I needed this to really feel like a comfortable, snug homey area, not a utility room.
We consulted with a number of plumbers and contractors earlier than deciding it was greatest to go away the pipes alone and construct out the wall. But we couldn’t cease there… Two of the partitions had previous paneling and the opposite wall was fairly busted up so we simply determined to drywall the entire darn room.
A week and a half later, it was time to color. We’ve painted so many homes and flats through the years, we’re execs however not relating to choosing paint colours… However, this time, selecting the best colours was truly a lot simpler than anticipated.
The TV wall is Sherwin-Williams Iron Ore, the three remaining partitions are Nacre, the fireside is Pure White, and the ceiling is Ceiling White. I am so proud of the outcomes, particularly Nacre. Whenever I select a impartial cream colour, it’s all the time too brown, too peach, or too yellow, however the Nacre is simply good. I’ll in all probability use it elsewhere in the home.
Then it was a matter of placing on some new door handles – we ordered all of the door handles for the entire home directly to keep away from a method being discontinued. They’re Kwikset Polo.
When we moved in, we put in new carpet: Martha Stewart Chatsworth in Gray Squirrel. We additionally bought the ginormous sofa from a sequence furnishings retailer. The sconces are Orbit by Lzf. The grey circle sew pillows are from Bholu, and the ottoman was a flooring pattern. I’m not loopy concerning the ottoman material colour, however it was such a discount and the right measurement. I assume it’s a good suggestion to only depart it as-is till our youngster is a bit older. I can see it now… stains starting from jelly and magic markers to Playdoh and chocolate sauce. Moms, am I proper? Then perhaps in a couple of years we will reupholster it in a enjoyable material from Henry Road or Marimekko or simply get one thing else.
There’s a noticeably naked part of the room as you possibly can see, however that’s for play mats, playpens, and the anticipated explosion of toys and nonsense that comes with having a child. I’ll hold you posted on how a lot of a catastrophe this aspect of the room turns into!
We additionally have to get some aspect tables (I’m considering a A-desk), paintings, and a brand new clock for the fireside (it’s so loud!). I’m saving my pennies for a Nelson walnut Starburst. Plus, that hideous brass hearth cowl has acquired to go. Blech. Needless to say, there’s nonetheless a ton of labor to be completed within the room. I’m open to recommendations…
Apologies for the poor high quality pictures – I’m nonetheless studying find out how to use my new digital camera.
Thanks to our associate Sherwin-Williams who offered us with the paint for this undertaking.
