I loove so many different colors and styles that our house is more of a hodgepodge than anything. Yet it does all go together.
Our living room is a very pretty light green color with brown furniture, and sea blue and white accents in it. It’s more of a natural modern feeling room with lots of woods and earthy accents.
Our kitchen/dining room is bright country (I like to call it that). I have buttery yellow walls with white cabinets in the kitchen. Then all of our furniture in there (table, hutch, china cabinet) is a hunter green with darker wood accents. The other accent colors in the room are lighter greens, some light blues and lots of pops of bright, bold red. I’ve started looking at the local thrift and antique stores for things to put in there. So far I’ve come across lots of neato things, my favorite being my big (1.5ft long) ceramic sheep that sits on the floor, my quilted rooster and old brightly colored bottles 🙂 Lots of animal and country/farm accents in this area.
Our bedroom, well this would be the most ‘rustic’ of them all. I have always loved horses and have acquired quite the unique collection of pictures and other horse items so I decided this would basically be our bedroom. My husband is a country boy so he didn’t mind sleeping with the horses 🙂 I found a beautiful sowthwestern colored quilt on overstock and pulled a lovely sage green from it and painted the walls that color. We have all honey pine furniture in there and brick red accents (curtin rod, shelf, the frame for the HUGE but AWESOME goodwill picture I found of a horse painted on velvet that is above our bed, and other knick knacks). The colors in the room make it soooo warm and inviting that I don’t want to leave in the morning.
Our guest room is our only ‘girly’ room in the house. It has all my stuff pre-husband in there. A nice flowery bedspread, curtains with botanicals on them a few stuffed animals…and well thats about it, that room is seriously lacking (who am I kidding, I don’t want to do anything to that room in hopes of it being a nursery sooner than later) oh and the walls are a pretty light blue.
Our office, now that is my favorite room. We call it the office because his computer is in there on a desk on one wall, and then rest is my crafting/scrapbooking stuff. I LOOOOVE this room. It is a funky mix of everything I love. The walls are a gray-blueish color and I am accenting my side of the room with lots of colors (I love seeing a rainbow of colors) and then everything that I love that I’ve collected over the years is in here, from my colorful bouncy ball collection, to my miniture things I love, to my turtle collections. So much fun stuff in here. His side of the room is turning out to be mostly train stuff. We have a lot of cool old train pics and old stock certs and different memorabilia from the railroad and we are making a collage wall of all of it. So far it is turning out nice.
Then we have the bathrooms that are a work in progress. When we bought the house the upstairs bath was covered in mold, so the whole thing needs to be redone. Eventually I want it a orange-sherbert color with light blue and white oceany accents (this wont really go with our countryish home, but I dont care, I’ve always wanted an orange bathroom). Our downstairs bath was painted a dark tan color when we moved in and I found a shower curtain that I love in a brown, blue, green, yellow paisly print, so it goes with the color for now. Eventually this will get redone too (its a yucky 30yr old bathroom) and it will have lots of natural stone, the shower curtain will get turned into other things in there like valences and such (we want glass shower doors but I love the curtin too much to get rid of it) and we already have the paint color and it is a very pretty light blue color.
We own our house so this is just what it is now. Who knows where it will go within the next few years as we settle in more and find a style that is truely ‘us’.
