Home Tour - S and M's Room

This by far is the most talked about color in our house (and on the blog and fb) everyone LOVES it!

It is called Sea Wave. To me, it is the perfect turquoise color!

The younger girls also have the same chandelier and a pink closet like E. I talked about it more here.

Home Tour - E's Room

This is our oldest daughter E's room.  This is the first time in 9 years she does not have to share a room with anyone! She is beyond excited :) She has big plans for the room and I will be sharing that with you soon.

 Here is the chandelierI told you about here. Everyone comments on how pretty the chandeliers are when they come into the girls rooms! I am pleased with how pretty they really are!

 The color is called Swiss Creme. I believe it is an Olympic color. I can verify if someone wants the color code. Just leave me a comment and I will look it up for you.

This is her closet and yes it is pink. She wanted something different so she chose to do it pink just like the younger girls closet :) It is called Chenille Spread BLP 8097. I promise it is MUCH prettier in person!

Home Tour - B's Room

The home tour continues....

This is our son's room. The paint color is called Chambray by Laura Ashley.

This is his secret hide out. It would have been just dead space under the stairs so we asked the framers to make it functional as a hide out. He loves it!

This is his closet.

Home Tour - Dining Room

The home tour continues....

This is our dining room.

If you are at the front door, this room is on the left.

The paint color is called Truly Olive by Glidden. I absolutely LOVE it!!!! I also used it on the kitchen island to help tie the two rooms together.

Home Tour - Upstairs 2

Today I will show you into these 2 rooms upstairs.

The room to the right is a guest room/office.

It has a window seat along with these built in's for plenty of storage.

The door to the left is a bathroom.

A $10 mirror I found at a home decor store in the mall fit perfectly in this spot.

While subway tile makes me smile!

The tour continues tomorrow showing you downstairs! I will also be posting a list of paint colors later this week!

Home Tour - Homeschool Room

I showed you the homeschool door yesterday now here is a peak inside....

Yes I know it is bright :) The kids picked out the color and I approved! It is so fun and cheerful. It is a room you want to be in - well at least a room where you don't mind being in since you have to anyway for school!

I think the color will make a fun background when we get all the school necessities put up such as bulletin boards and decorations!

I have so many ideas for this room. It won't be completely ready for this school year since we only have a few more weeks left, but by August, we will have built in desks and shelving units!
