    Yes, when I met you (seems like forever ago last fall in NYC) you had on the most beautiful bright dress, so I definitely think of you as a color girl! Love the idea of adding orange to the ceiling…looking forward to seeing this special room come together. Janell

    Love the idea. Can’t wait to see the ceiling.

    Love that bathroom picture. We had a tub like that when we lived in Trinidad, but you stepped in from the end. It was great.

    Love it! I almost painted our nursery ceiling high gloss too, but decided against b/c we may sell the house in the next year or two… So excited to see yours!

    Make sure you tell your finisher to give you a “Level 5” finish before the first drop of paint goes up on the ceiling. You will be very unhappy with the result if your SheetRock isn’t as smooth as glass before you paint with high gloss. Every single imperfection will be reflected.

    Thank you for this “jackpot” of a post! I’ve been pondering a particular color for our living room, and that Benjamin Moore color appears to be exactly what I was thinking of. Meanwhile, there’s no way my husband would let me paint colored ceilings, but I tore out an image (maybe House Beautiful two years ago?) that’s almost exactly the color of that coral ceiling and dream often of looking up at that beautiful color….

    Oh, and p.s. we used Mythic paint on our baby’s room trim and daybed and I was really glad for the choice. None of the paints we used (Killz, Glidden, and Mythic) had any smell, so I originally questioned whether “non-toxic” really mattered. Then one of our cats walked through the paint and licked it off her paws, the toddler licked her painted bed for whatever inexplicable reason, etc. Never know what family life will bring — nice to be covered just in case!

    I can’t wait to see pictures of how your color choices turn out. My office & my guest bath are Desert Tan. I adore the color, but they look nothing like the swatch once it was on my walls. I would call it more of a buttery yellow. Light, subtle and I love it. Thanks as always for the great ideas!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
