Hi friends! It’s Friday night and a three day weekend ahead. YEA! Very much looking forward to the next few days. I’m also looking forward to the next few hours. In my pajamas. On the couch. :) When I went to visit my sister Carly a couple of weeks ago I snapped some pictures of her house. She and her husband bought their house about four years ago and have been giving it quite a make-over one step at a time. They love contemporary – completely different than my decorating style, but I still LOVE what they’ve done. And since I totally have house decor on the brain I thought I’d share a few pics with you! Wish I had some “before” pics to show, but since I don’t I’ll just share the “afters”…
They pulled up the original carpet in the living room and laid this wood floor (they’ve done a lot of the work themselves – DIY style). Car’s husband made the coffee and end table out of cement. Very cool.
Love this picture collage in their entry. I think they’ve repainted this entry at least five times. Every time I visit it’s a different color. :)
They covered sheetrock beams in their dining room with wood and then covered a whole wall with brick (on the left).
Some shelves they installed in the kitchen. I love the purple scale. And the tidy upside down coffee mugs.
Next is one of my favorite spaces in the house! They turned the loft at the top of their stairs into a TV/playroom for the kiddos. Love the wallpaper. This print is so in right now. Very fun.
Next is another favorite room – Claire’s bedroom (their 3 year old)…
The dresser and nightstand Car used in high school. She painted them white and put new pulls on them.
I also love the way she displays Claire’s artwork. She bought this display clippy thing (nice description, right?) at Ikea.
And this bathroom set was originally – hmmm – what’s the best way to put this – UGLY! Until Car spray painted everything white.
