Finally, finishing up some rooms! While my laundry is still all over the bedroom floor (well, nothing new there), I did get the boys' rooms unpacked fairly quickly. After two weeks, we are finally adding the finishing touches to the living room and the boys' bedrooms. It feels great to no longer have bare walls and to feel a sense of accomplishment having totally decorated a few rooms.
I've always loved wood floors. There's something comforting knowing
there's wood throughout the main level, but I have to say having carpet
in the living room has really grown on me. The boys have done a great
job of leaving their shoes and food in the kitchen and keeping the beige
carpet clean. It was interesting decorating an all vanilla room though
without having wood on the floor and a colorful area rug to pull all
the colors together. So, I stepped out of my comfort zone and decorated
with bright pops of color and played with asymmetrical design. I also
stepped away from relying on dark brown wood tones to ground everything
and added touches of black throughout the room.
