Room Makeovers

I like to take a slow approach to decorating. You could almost describe it as a glacial pace. Like, we've lived in this house for 5 years and I am just now getting around to painting. Earlier in August, Scott and I ripped up the carpet in the guest room and old office and it replaced with cork floors. This week, my in-laws and I painted the rooms a lovely shade of white. The white may not be everyone's cup of tea but I am excited. These rooms look so much better. Before, there were drab and dingy and now they are light and airy.
Even though it has taken me forever to get around to redoing these rooms, I am really ok with that. I don't think I would have done as good of a job if I had tried to do it all at once as soon as I moved in. I didn't really know what I liked or how these rooms would be used. I firmly believe that when it comes to decorating you should only buy what you love. That may make the process slower but I think the end result will be much better. As you can see in the above photos, our guest room is still pretty bare. I have visions of some new artwork and maybe a cool, funky mirror. I'll get to it one day. For now, you can find staring at the walls admiring the paint job.


  1. I think it looks clean, airy and inviting. Nicely done Joanna! :)

  2. A glacier pace. Hahaha! That's my decorating speed too! Love the white linens though!
