Our main living area and master bedroom both were painted white when we first moved in. I think those spaces feel airy and have enough color with the furniture and accents we've chosen to have personality and depth. But I craved some colorful spaces sprinkled throughout our house. This small room that would one day be a playful nursery was a perfect spot for a little rebellion from the traditional feel of our house.
We mention to each other how unreal it is that we live in this house almost weekly. There hasn't been an ounce of buyer's remorse with this home--even with a busted pipe the week before we moved in and no central air during a 90-degree summer. We are grateful to be living here. And it's just the perfect home for us.
There are plenty of home improvement blogs. Austin and I are not doing anything new here. In fact, we are doing something that many other people have been doing much better for much longer. Open Pinterest. There are no shortages of living room decor pins and bathroom renovation reveals.
