Home Update Inspiration

Planning a wedding wasn’t enough for me, so E and I are buying a home AND planning the renovations. Lots of decisions to make. And yes, a little overwhelming. The home is pretty much a tragic mess to start with, so I’m open to any and all suggestions! Here’s what I’m thinkin’:

Study before:

Study after: 

All black,

all white,

or a little bit of both?

Bright and colorful,

or, keep it as is?

LOVE the turquoise backsplash! Any idea where I can find those tiles?

Living room after: 

I’m loving the crisp white walls + pops of color & pattern. Except every time I ask for a white paint color, I get that look. Like, ew, why would you choose white?

With the white walls, I’d like to add a light turquoise POP to the back of the built-in shelves.

I’ll use throw pillows to tie in all the paint colors.

Master after:

Light, serene walls (and probably a dark comforter since a boxer likes to make her way on the bed regularly).

And I’ll finally be able to reupholster my sofa that I bought in Savannah and moved to Houston, and have it at the foot of our bed.

New shower…

Still looking for this paint color, and that tub is definitely on the list for later!

We’ll have white shutters, and I’m still searching for the perfect chandelier.

Guest bedrooms:

We also have two other bedrooms to choose paint colors for. Here are a few inspiration rooms…

  1. Your study is amazing!! I love the black after for the study, and then all of the whites navys and soft blues for the rest of the house. Can’t wait to see the final afters

  2. Wow, you’re going to be busy!! Great ideas and pics. I definitely think the study needs something done, its a bit too much wood for me at the moment!! All black is very stylish, just so long as the room is big enough to support that colour. I really like your style, I do love white schemes, but definitely with added colour here and there as you suggested, otherwise it can be a bit cold and characterless. You can add depth and style to all white schemes with stunning feature pieces of furniture, upholstered in fab fabrics, then match in with curtains and cushions. Or gold (as in last pic) looks really stylish and warm against white. Even just adding an ornate gold mirror into a white room can look stunning, especially with a chandelier to complete the look!! Good luck and have fun :O)

  3. How fun!!! I love the black & white combo for the study, especially with pops of color and metallic accents – SO much character. I love THAT all black room, but I think all black could be really easy to not get quite right and wind up hating. Just my thoughts. Love all the ideas! Great that you picked colors and styles that you can easily tie together. I can’t wait to see how it all turns out! Keep us posted on progress!!

  4. It’s going to be great! Love all your inspiration photos. My vote is black with a touch of white (trim?) for the office. Good luck!

  5. Love your ideas….awesome home to redo!! Must take before and after pics as you do each room…I have no life so I will be waiting for updates….you go girl…
