Alright, here we are on our last stop. If you missed the first few stops check it out here. This final home is a great example of how you can update a 1960’s home using fresh paint colors, bold wallpaper, modern furniture and well edited accessories.
Have a low ceiling problem in your home? Take a cue from this home and don’t be afraid to add pattern to an entry way.
The key is to keep the rest of your color palate neutral.
Ok now I am really going to freak you out. 4 words. Wallpaper on the Ceiling. Say What?
Not just any wallpaper. I mean they could have gone with a subtle pattern or color. But they went bold with dogs. And I think it looks fantastic.
That gum ball machine would be empty all the time in my house! This family was from New York so I thought this was a great way to incorporate their family history right into their decor.
I love that this table setting is simple but elegant. Taking something from your garden (or even the grocery store) is a great way to make a simple centerpiece and the basis for your color palette. The orange persimmons are a beautiful contrast to the turquoise napkins. And I love the simplicity of the jar glasses.
This home did have an add on to extend the back room of the house and the master suite upstairs. So with a small step down the house opens into a beautiful family room.
This room has a lot of modern touches. But it didn’t feel cold. It was comfortable with the addition of a few fuzzy accents. I love the lucite table behind the couch too.
Haven’t you all been wondering what to do with that puffer fish you have?
I love that this painting takes in the whole color palette of the house. It ties everything together.
Chippy Table alert! Every house has to have one.
There is one thing I have noticed in all these great homes we have toured. There is continuity. Each home has a theme and the theme carries through the whole house. And it’s often the small touches that create that continuity, like these pendants. They were in the kitchen and in the kid’s rooms. This would be a simple project for the kids to do as well.
I see these little cases in vintage stores all the time. What a great way to display a shell collection.
One more chance to see how to use a dark color with bold accents. Dark navy walls that are accented with lighter blues and a pop of yellow is the opposite of dark. It’s fresh and light and bright. It would be a great way to wake up.
Or if you are like me, hit the snooze a half dozen times. Maybe if I paint my bedroom like this I will only hit the snooze once.
What was your favorite room on this tour?
