hello, darling

We've been in this house for going on 5 months and it's starting to feel like me.
I thought it'd be fun to do a short house tour.
Let me first say...nothing is complete, but we're a heck of a lot further along in this journey of making a house a home. 

KITCHEN BEFORE
The red, tan and black weren't doing it for me. Add in the fact that these were the only cabinets and counters and I was left dreaming of more space.
 KITCHEN (ALMOST) AFTER
So we have a few finishing touches do to the space, but I'm calling it 95% complete. The room lives so much larger than before! And I'm loving the way colors pop off the white and wood. 

 LIVING ROOM BEFORE
Umm...the land of lots of beige. Oh and dingy, dirty carpets.


 LIVING ROOM AFTER
This room is far from complete, but we're light years ahead of where we started...





 BEFORE VIVI'S ROOM
Yawn. Beige. Yawn.

 VIVI'S CURRENT AFTER
This is a teeny, tiny space. It's missing all kinds of art and window treatments, etc., but it's certainly feeling a bit more Vivi-ish than it once was!





 BEFORE DEAN'S ROOM
This was the first room in our house to get a coat of paint- the walls in these pics have already been painted. Think beige to imagine the true "before".

 DEAN'S ROOM AFTER
Not the best pics to represent this, but you can sorta see Jonah and the whale illustrated on the chalkboard wall. The versatility of this wall has been epic.
