Before- a mash up of drab color! I scraped wallpaper that I had hung maybe 15 years ago- no wallpaper for me ever again thank you!)
I purchased the moroccan pillow (in the center) from Native in Scituate- my main source of inspiration! I consulted with the owner ( Marie) she has a great eye for color and design and helped me so much!
I went with this palette -
Loves helped too! I usually use the Ben Moore paint- but went with Valspar- I was very happy with it and the price was a LOT better...
The hallway with all the doors got completely done in a purple gray to show off the wildly painted floor- I painted right over the old floor- its plywood and has been painted many times- I actually may never get around to tiling it!
A mermaid and turtle on the floor -why not!
the powder room got the yellow paint- need some fun new towels...
Lisa Howard of Local Pottery made my sink and tiles many moons ago...
The sitting area got the salmon color. I hired Hilary from Duxbury do the cushion slipcovers (using drop cloths from Lowes- my go-to) she's the best!
Lamp hack-I took the crystals off the chandelier and batiked the shades- couldn't resist putting fake lemons in the bowl ( thank you Duxbury Dump! for the fake fruit)
I am thinking of buying a new fixture for this area but in the meantime this will do.
I love my house now!
Now I just need to clean it..LOL
