As you may know, I purchased my first home in January of this year. I have been in my home for almost 6 months, and I am getting a better idea of what I want to change.
The home is in livable shape. I just want to make it my design.
Within the first week of owning it, I painted the living room, halls and the master bedroom. I could not handle the colors the house was previously painted. The master bedroom was dark red.
I could literally see myself having panic attacks waking up to that vibrant color.
When my sister’s room was all pink, I would nap in there, and I always got panic attacks. It is a weird thing, trust me.
It is amazing what fresh paint can do to a space!
If you saw my apartment tour video, the room hasn’t really changed much as far as decor.
My home decor style is a little bit of a farmhouse glam. I had to add some farmhouse elements since I am in the town of the beloved Fixer Upper.
I want to add mirrors above the nightstands and some frames above the headboard. I have been scouring Pinterest for ideas on this.
But, my bedroom design was one of the first things I got to finish, so this is the most complete room that I have. Even though I really need to hang things on the walls.
Plus, I want to mount my TV, and maybe get a dresser. I also want to get some sheer curtains with a subtle design.
The wall color is glacial stream from Sherwin Williams. I also painted the ceiling white because it was yellow from the previous owner smoking. Trust me, painting a ceiling is the worst.
Aside from decor, this room is pretty much solid except for new carpet. I have toyed with the idea of adding a bigger closet, but that’s the only possible giant renovation as of now.
I can’t decide if I want to do a white or a grey carpet. To be honest, I will probably chose grey because of my dogs, but I would love, love, love to have white carpet. It is so gorgeous!
Stay tuned, I plan on doing this with every room, and I am so excited to show you the progress in the living room!
Have you ever taken on a fixer upper?
