A lot of designers will tell you that light fixtures are often the jewel of the room.

Partial Hallway Reveal

As you will have gathered from the title of this post, I’m not quite ready to do a full blown out reveal of my entry hallway. A few more tweaks still needs to happen to reach my desired effect, but for now, I’m pretty satisfied with this set up/vignette. Without further ado, here’s my partial hallway reveal!

15 Paint Colors I Used In My House

When we bought this house, I knew I wanted to choose paint colors that were natured inspired: blues, greens, and grays. I’ve always been inspired by nature and I am now even more so since this house came with beautiful landscaping. I wanted there to be some flow: greens from the plants, blues from the clear sky on sunny days, and grays from the cloudy rainy days.

If you missed the sneak peek of the wall colors, check it out here as long as you don’t mind camera phones.

Making an Entrance

Every home needs a good entryway- a fantastic welcoming spot as soon as you walk through the front door. It needs to be a well-rounded spot. Not only does it need to be personalized to you (as a place to drop off keys, mails or to kick off your shoes, whatever it is you do at the front door), it needs to make your guests feel welcomed. It needs to give them hints as to who you are and of what the rest of the house will be like.

Ceilings and Dark Trims of the New House

Hey guys! I have finally emerged from the depths of the ocean. So much happened this month that we’re only just now catching our breath and starting to enjoy ownership of our first house.

I must confess. I was not able to get pictures of the house all freshly painted before moving in boxes. The family members we called on to help us move do not mess around. We were only going to have them help move the big things, like the couch and this monster of a beautiful hutch. Well, one thing led to another and before I knew it, in about two hours, all of my things were packed up. We moved almost everything in one day! Once everyone got in the house to check out the new paint job, they were ready to unload in time for lunch. Of course, we ordered pizza.

Since I was not able to get photos of empty freshly painted rooms, I decided to give you peeks of what I did: painted ceilings. You’ll also see some wall and trim colors. Jon and I wanted to branch out and not do the typical white ceiling and trim and we love it!
