Kelly's "New" House

Well...new to them!  Although it was a previously owned home, you wouldn't know it.  Everything about the inside of the house was changed from floor to ceiling.  Every room.  The transformation was absolutely amazing and I wanted to show you the finished product to give some really good decorating ideas.  
Don't be afraid to use color!!!

My mom and SIL Katie are so talented when it comes to choosing colors, fabric, decor, and furniture for a room.  
Remember the before?

The after is worthy of a magazine.

The living room was painted SW Tea Chest with an accent wall behind the windows painted SW Drizzle.

Yay!  My contribution!  The faux painted fireplace!

This used to be a full wall in the living room.  You would have to walk from the living room all the way around through the dining room to get to the kitchen.  My dad cut an archway leading into the kitchen.  Genius.

The kitchen was a total remodel.  New granite, under counter lighting, new appliances, and paint.  The top cabinets were painted white while the bottom cabinets were painted Sherwin Williams Lagoon.  An antique glaze was added to both.

The downstairs kitchen and halls were painted SW Relaxed Kacki.

The master bedroom is my favorite.  The colors and bedding are beautiful.  The wall color is SW Rain and the night stands are painted a few shades darker, River Way.   One neat thing they did was paint the ceiling a non-traditional color.  Instead of white they used SW Latte.  The bed, curtains, lamps, and bedding make this bedroom so inviting and elegant.


The stairs were a challenge.  When they first looked at the house it felt like you were climbing a ladder, the angle was so steep.  They had a carpenter come in, demo the old, and build new to where it only added a few inches to the front.  This made the angle a little more kid-friendly.  The wood and iron spindles add decor.   

 Master Bathroom - SW Tradewind

Half bath downstairs

Upstairs bathroom - SW Color Hearts of Palm

 The boys' rooms both were painted SW Gray Matters with an accent wall behind their bed.  The orange is SW Marquis Orange and the teal is SW Aquarium.

And my beautiful sister Kelly.  Thanks for letting me show off your home with all the great ideas!

  1. I was cruising looking for SW Latte pics and saw your staircase/hallway pics and wall color looks great...is that "SW Relaxed Kacki" there in the hallway?
