A funny thing happens when you move back home to your parents house after college, and posses a degree in interior design. Can you guess?! Your parents recruit you to redo their home. Over the years I was in college, they've graciously allowed me to use their house as my experimental canvas, and now we're ready to pull it all together and make it look like a brand new place, just by changing a few key things. I'm calling this #operationmakeovermyparentshouse
The living room design plan is above. Currently there's a floral sofa (that my mom chose 13 years ago, in her defense.) We just purchased a new sofa on Monday. It's not quite like the one in the picture, but I couldn't find an image online. You'll have to wait and see what it looks like when it arrives in 5 weeks! (Ohhh, the suspense!) It's dark gray, and I'm loving it! The walls will be Malibu Beige at 75%. We really love the color, so we're doing most of our home this color, with the exception of my room, the master bedroom, my brother's room and the new bathroom. It's getting painted next week, so we're extremely excited. I'll definitely be back with updates on the color.
The REALLY exciting part is that one wall in our dining room walls will be this amazingly beautiful Phillip Jeffries diamond wallpaper. This will serve as the focal point of the room and other details in the living room will accent the silver/blue hue in the textured paper. Our other colors will be navy and cranberry. Should be a beautiful new look.
What do you think? I can't wait to keep you updated on the whole room! If you're looking for interior design services, including virtual home design, visit my website!
