Moonshot from Ace


             Moonshot from Ace

I have been wanting to incorporate a lighter color into my house that isn't quite white, but is as close as I can visually stand to it (because it looks just so dang classy all over Pinterest I just had to try it).

  I have dark brown walls, which was an accident and has been tricky.  It's actually really cozy, but it doesn't photograph well, which stinks for sharing pics of the abode.  The contrasting walls to the brown ones were meant to be a tan color, but actually turned out to be green.

Jute Rug!

We got a jute rug! Finally!  Also changed the light fixture to a chandelier with shades. Yay!  No more ugly yellow glass against a brown wall (yellow and brown together- you know where I'm going with this...)

New Piece


                      New Piece

I have this new piece that fits perfectly at the end of the hall.  I feel like it ties in with the look of the living room and dining room.













Master Bedroom Update

The master bedroom has been one of my last priorities, and anyway it seems that once I add something to one room, I feel like it looks so much better than the other rooms so I start adding or making changes to those.  It is a never ending cycle of perfectionism, but I feel like when I look around my house, I am almost completely satisfied (which has not been the case since I became a Pinterest addict). I really just need to do updates for each room.

So anyway, here is my updated master bedroom.  I wanted to create a light and airy space that matches the farmhouse style a little better than the previous set up.  It is still not finished (is anything ever?)  I think I need to update the mirror and consider painting (yeep!) my furniture.  I'm just not ready for that!  Here it is:






The headboard is actually a room divider that I bought on clearance at Home Goods.  My handy husband cut off the top posts with a chop saw and we just pushed the bed up against it to hold it flat and in place against the wall.
