|The foyer in our latest project, will have this insanely fabulous wallpaper. I have not been able to stop staring at this beauty, and it aint even installed yet!|
Anyway, let's get up to speed on this renovation and design project.
|Plans for the kitchen and eat-in area includes some Chippendale chairs.|
So, we initially planned to sand and stain the floors on the main floor. Psst..these are the pictures of the home with the previous owners items so no, this is NOT what we are working with people.
But sometimes a good sanding can reveal some pretty bad things and we discovered flooring that wasn't in the best of shape. In addition, once we started to shop for carpeting for the bedrooms, and saw the insane price tags for said carpeting (I rarely install carpet in my design projects so this was an eye opener) we soon realized that it made sense to bite the bullet and go for the gusto: install amazing dark bamboo floors everywhere.
Here's a preview:

We completed the floors this weekend, and also all our lighting selections.
Here's a peek:
We are designing for two little girls here as well and will share some of those design decisions next week.In other news, we sorta celebrated our one year blogging anniversary back in February. I know, you missed it right? Of course you did because there was like zero fanfare. So, to make up for that little indiscretion we'll announce the mother of all giveaways tomorrow. It's major people, as in so major that Debbie and I'll probably create fake name/email accounts so we can enter to win the items our damn selves. Brace yourselves. It's gonna be bananas.
