This is the first room in this house we've basically almost finished, so its what we look to when we need motivation to keep going :)
Here is the before (actually, this was taken before we even moved in- this was the previous owners decor choices):
and once we moved in, here is the after:
I need to get a picture in the daylight, since this room gets flooded with light during the day, and makes it so much prettier!
We are still debating on curtains for the window...I actually bought a pair, but we can't decide if the room needs it or not.
Basically everything in the room was changed. Ceiling, walls and trim were all painted. Carpet was ripped out and replaced with new bamboo flooring, lighting was changed and all decor (obviously). It was the easiest room to do since we didn't need to be in there a lot.
Some of you have been asking me where I got the furniture. Well, the desk and tall cabinet were actually purchased off of Kijiji and redone. If you want to see the "before's" you can them here, and here.
I love the colour on the walls (its 'Fine Silver' by ICI) and all our trim in the house is 'Simply White' by Benjamin Moore Aura. Its just a bit less warm that the popular "Cloud White" which works well with the colours we are choosing for the walls.
