upstairs, the entryway opens up to the spacious living room. the family space was also mustard with green and pumpkin walls looming nearby. today it’s light and bright with benjamin moore’s intense white walls. doug and elissa installed dark flooring, crown moudling and baseboards, adding some architectural pizzazz to the space. they also crafted custom pillows and bargain shopped for furniture.
finally we go back downstairs to the home office, where they went all out, ikea hacking up a storm. never have i seen a billy bookcase look so amazing. doug replaced the flimsy cardboard backs with bead board, built up the base, and added a substantial header and crown moulding. he also designed and installed a customized panel for the end gable and trimmed out all the joints to make it look like one unit, not three. HOME OFFICE HEAVEN!

after excitedly wrapping up the remodel of our guest room i felt that something was missing, and rather than drive myself and tyler crazy, searching for the missing puzzle piece, i chose to wait for the solution to come to me organically. and to my surprise it happened at the home depot. for $34.97 in the form of a 30" diameter starburst. the metal antique gold mirror acts as the perfect anchor for our guest room and the missing puzzle piece. so the next time your man asks you to the hardware store, join him, you never know what inspirational item you'll find.
