Off to Toronto in a bit but I thought I`d show a glimpse of our mess as well as what the animals think about it. Have a great weekend! Hope everyone has a faster connection than me because I`ve gotten carried away with pictures.....
This is the hallway to the back garden area. It`s going to be bare for awhile but it`s nice to get rid of that old green rug. I look so forward to really changing the look of this area with new colours etc. Raymond Waites on a bad budget mixed with boho mish mash will be only in the bathroom and one or two bedrooms eventually. A consolation is that I have loads of time to study colour and idea combinations. I picked up a ton of paint chips in all shades of the greens and reds in the cranberrie and pinky shades.....but no pink! Just that family rather than the terra cottas and orange reds for accents. I love the old world greens and naturals but this being a cottage, it wouldn`t work here so good. I`d like to bring the garden feel inside without getting too flowery about it. We`ll see. There sure is a lot to think about and I can`t for the life of me find any pictures with those colour combos for ideas. The walls white....green themed room with those shades of red dark to light to warm it up and then a dash or two of some small other colours such as ivory, white and one more. OOOOh, I need to be rich!..
And this is the hallway to the front door and frontroom at the moment....
This looks oddly like a paper bustier...
What? You think I`m going to bother her?
Uh oh....look out Isabell....
Everything is crammed in the hall, bedroom and halfway down the frontroom.
Watching tv view. An Interior designer would have a fit, seeing that tv beside the fireplace. But it`s really the only place it can go. It really needs camophlaging if not in use. Budget wise, I wonder if a tablecloth would do LOL
Elvis has found a small mat for now.....
Ahhhhhhh......wonderful rubbing post......
Totally heavenly, lovely mess......
