As much as I love the house we will be moving into in Victoria, there is
one room I really don't like and will change asap and that is the ...
pink striped foyer!
Y'all know I like pink, but not in a foyer. I love to wear pink and to
paint my nails pink, but I don't care for it on my walls. The last time I
had pink walls was when I was a teenager. So, bye, bye pink!
Of course, not being one to accept things the way they are, I also want
to change the front door and add a transom window and maybe a
side light too to bring more light and openness into the space.
I am thinking something more like this. Oh dear, stripes once again. Can't say
I want that, but I love the window over the door. If I did that I could keep
the existing door. I love the side light too. The wainscoting is nice and
how about those blue and white plates above that charming bench?
Is that a church pew do you think?
Here is a pic of the French doors leading to the living room. Excuse the
quality of the pic, David took this with his cell phone. Love the doors.
The carpet in the living room is going away as are those sheers and those
valances too. The windows in that room (there are four of them) are
four feet by seven feet and are lovely old colonial windows whose sills
nearly touch the floor.
Here is another image I love! This is so warm and friendly.
More transfer ware. We love that! Oh and painted paneling. I am
beginning to think that I will want to paint the paneling in the
family room. Have I mentioned that? Of course I have not
breathed a word of that idea to David. I will have to "condition"
him on the idea. A while back ago I thought I could live with the
dark paneling, but you know how we women are ;-)
Okay, better run. Busy, busy days right now.
Happily Joining ~
Bentley ~ your daddy will be back home in two days. I
know how happy you will be to see him (me too). Better get
your toys packed before the moving van shows up. You
can bring a few with you when we all drive down to Texas.
