Still debating what their room color should be. Wallpaper is still on the table (for one wall) as well.

I had a grand plan to paint this room an off-white (bought the cans of paint and everything), but now that I see the finished drywall in this bright, gallery white, I want to keep it this way. Hmm.

I am definitely painting this room dark green. It has been determined.

I still have no idea what color to paint their room. One child says beige, while the other child’s answer to everything is blue.

To the left of this picture is the dining room, a.k.a. “the addition,” which is so bad that we haven’t touched it at all. It would be a huge, expensive project (on top of this already huge, expensive project), so we decided to live with it for now. Maybe for the next decade. Maybe forever.

In the meantime, I am trying to love and appreciate the living room, which is turning out to be quite lovely.

It seems I didn’t photograph the kitchen with the first stage of drywall, so consider “Day 13” a loose description.

Ocean-Inspired Kitchen by Urban Grace Interiors

I’ve been considering Sherwin-Williams’ Retreat for my bedroom, so naturally, an image search followed. I came upon this beautiful, ocean-inspired kitchen by an interior design firm in Florida.

I could stare all day.

It’s the soft, aqua tiles next to the earthy green, isn’t it? And the brass lanterns with the turquoise insides? Those contrasts are irresistible.
