Here's a reminder of my fireplace.
So this is what I thought - spray paint the gold face silver. What do you think? OR will that look odd with the rustic mantle? What other color could I paint it? Black???
Should I paint the brick white? Gosh that does scare me a bit because if I mess it up it is then messed up. I wish I was braver to just paint the brick. Does anyone know of any good tutorials on how to do this? Do you think the brick will look bad with the rustic mantle?
I'd also like to make my kitchen bigger. I mean it is less than 8x8. I'd love to knock the rest of this wall out between the kitchen/dining room.
Here is the window we knocked into it because the wall is load bearing.
Then I really need to do something with this buffet. The leg broke and we can't figure out how to fix it properly so here it is still holding together with black duct tape.
Since it isn't worth anything any longer and there isn't a sentimental value I am still thinking of painting it, at least the bottom and refinishing the top and staining it dark. What do you think....
As you can see it is also damaged from years of sitting in the sun so painting it would really bring it out. Now... color - robins egg blue? mint? gray? or another shade? What is your opinion?
Next on the 'list' is our master bedroom. I need new curtains. The one's there are like 10 years old and dark brown VELVET. YIKES talk about outdated.
Spring makes me think of light colors overall but I'm not a pastel fan but I have been thinking of lightening up the house. While I love the blue walls should I lighten the shade say 2 or 3 lighter OR should I forget this silly adventure and embrace the dark side that currently engulfs me?? I do love rich jewel box colors.
I'd love to hear your opinion really because I can't make up my mind really. I've got decorating ADD - there is something about almost every style that I love.
Industrial - love the metal/wood look
Farmhouse - love the Joanna Gaines style
French Country - love the lines and the use of bright and muted colors
Mid Century - love the clean crisp no nonsense look and bright colors
Traditional - love the classic style of a wingback chair
Mountain - love a stone fireplace
Rustic - love that wood
Classic - I do love a good antique as you can tell
See... gosh so confused.
So light or dark or somewhere in between?
IDEAS PEEPS I NEED IDEAS!
Please help me and don't let me drown here while I try to figure this out. I really believe that going forward it isn't the HGTV or favorite flavor designers that will be setting home trends but the blogger and the average homeowner - US! Nothing against those talented designers and TV personalities because their design talent, drive and ambition got them where they are today... I will always love Sarah Richardson and Candice Olsen's style but I still think it is US who will begin setting design trends going forward. There are many talented bloggers out there that don't have degree's - think Joanna Gaines... love her. So any help you can give me is much much appreciated.
Next week I'll be decorating for St. Patrick's Day, yes this girl is a bit Irish and I decorate it up for St. Pat's. Then I'll be thinking about spring and Easter decorating and trying to come up with an unusual for my door décor. Spring doesn't really come to Colorado until late April maybe even late May so anytime I can bring flowers in I will. Then I'm going to tackle at least one of the projects I'm talking about and asking for your help.
