As all homeowners can attest, the improvement projects are never ending. There’s always one on the pipeline, along with several that need a good tweak and update. Same goes here, in our 202-year-old home. Our dining room and primary bedroom seriously need a refresh!
Mac made the comment the other day of “I like that I come home from school knowing that the house won’t be the same as when I left. There’s always project stuff around here.”
I laughed and totally thought that was funny.
At least Mac notices, I thought to myself. Sean mentioned recently on a print that has been hanging in the dining room for almost four years. “Is that new?” he says.
Sigh. But funny.
The more I thought of it, the more I knew that it was true. I change, re-paint, and redecorate allllllllll the time around here. There’s always paint chips, wood scraps, and inspirational tear sheets hanging on the walls around here. I clean up and shuffle for blog photos, then it’s back to letting everything settle until the next project can begin. Design daydreams can take anywhere from a couple days to complete, to several weeks. Still, the thought process never dulls for me, yet only enhances. It keeps me on my toes.
We have two rooms on the pipeline that need to be renovated; or shall I say ones that I want to be renovated. Our dining room and our primary bedroom. The bedroom received a paint job a couple years ago, and I’ve seriously grown tired the color. Actually, with my OCD of paint colors, honestly I was tired of the navy about three days in, if I’m totally going to be honest for the bedroom. And, though I’m still jonesing over the brick wall in the dining room, the other three walls need some major refresh and volume.
So with all this talk about renovating, you know I’m bound to make things happen. YES, the primary bedroom is going to be renovated, and YES the dining room is going to get a major paint refresh.
The days in between the end of January and the beginning of April are always in flux. The weather outside is moody, and it’s never easy to judge when or if a large projects can be worked on outside. Coupled with design demands and space needs, it’s a bit challenging to work on these logistics, let alone complete them. But, don’t fret, I’m working on them and enjoying every step of the way!!
Here in the 1820, we seriously have five interior design projects that are in the works.
For real! And it’s these projects that keep me engaged!!
Trying to keep up and write about them, is another challenge. The balance of family, food, and farm is always on the table. But ya’ll, I’m here for it!!!
These two room designs are so gorgeous, that you’re totally going to want to see them!! Designs that are completely out of the ordinary, yet on par with English traditional decor with a modern Hudson Valley touch.
I mean, SERIOUSLY!
That’s My Goal
So while we mosey on in to this next season, let’s celebrate these two rooms and what they hold in store. They’re on the pipeline and all hands on deck. These two room designs will be EPIC. Still, this girl here, that’s creating, writing and editing all, will present to you, within the next few weeks, two rooms that will fill your heart with interior design envy. Patience is a virtue, and this is a phrase I must repeat to myself daily. From someone that wants everything yesterday, these designs are those that YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS!!!
These nature inspired hues with pops of color. Calming with a small splash of brilliance. It all blends together, bringing a calming uniformity.
So stay with me and invite your friends to join. Because this design ride will bring inspiration to the masses. Wait until you see what is next!!
Come Along For The Ride!!!
