modern

Well here we are in the middle of July. How did that happen??? One good thing about summerbreak is that we’re finally starting to tackle more of the home projects on our seemingly ever-growing list.

One project that’s been a long time coming is re-painting our multi-level hallway. The previous owners were big fans of yellow while I am not. Over a year ago, we settled on Violet Pearl from Benjamin Moore as the new color. But then life happened and oh, I had a baby! And painting was put on the back burner.

But now we’re in the midst of getting it done and it’s looking great so far! I can’t wait to do a bit of decor updates and really make the space feel cohesive and complete. For now, here’s a sneak-peek of the color plus some inspiration.
 

Mid-project, you can still glimpse the old yellow

  

New lighting, bench and art

From Yellow to Violet

Modern and Chic

I’ve been working on ideas for the nursery, and my vision is something that I feel is both modern and shabby-chic at the same time. Is that even possible? I think so!

Here are some of the pieces I believe could work, mixed in with some items I already plan on using in the space. You’ll find out what I’ve actually used once I do the big reveal! But trust me, that won’t happen for a while as the room is still being used as a holding ground for baby clothes, diapers, guitars, books, you name it!
