My goal for the weekend is to finish the painting in our 1/2 bath - including 2 more coats of white paint on the trim and cutting in the gray wall paint around the ceiling and trim. Bonus would be getting a little decorating done too.
So, for some motivation in the decorating department, let's take a look at some great pictures from BHG's website...
I love the color blue. So, why not paint your cabinets blue? What a fun way to add color to a space. The walls are very neutral to balance things out. And I love the open shelves on either side of the window - keeps things nice an airy. I'm considering getting bamboo blinds like this for my kitchen windows. Hmmm...
2. Neutral Bathroom
3. Green Dining Room
4. Red Foyer
5. Brown Living Room
Full of shape, texture, and pattern, this living room has a rich quality. The warm palette includes taupe and white on the painted walls and architectural trim, with upholstery in shades of brown and khaki. Layers of texture include bamboo blinds, a leather ottoman, and a large area rug. I adore the fireplace niche and bookshelves that add storage and a place for decor.
6. Boy's Bedroom
This is a great boy's bedroom. It's a great combination of modern and vintage. Drawers in the base of the bed store games, toys, and puzzles. Built-ins with storage make the most of the small 9 x 10-foot space. And I love the bronze star light fixture.
7. Casual Home OfficeA handy U-shaped desktop fits perfectly into a corner, creating a small but functional home office. Open shelves and basket files hold lots of supplies. Built-in under a window, a padded window seat can also be used as a bed. The traditional armchair and fabric choices look so homey.
Happy dreaming this weekend!
