The Roseland house had a fireplace that we decided to keep, I always want to have a fireplace in any house we live in for not only a focal point but for Santa purposes of course.  I wasn’t feeling the all brown brick look, but had an idea for updating it that I’d come across on Pinterest.  I’m just going to repost some of the photos from The Lettered Cottage to kinda show what we plan on doing.

The only issue is that our fireplace hearth is topped with some ugly tile, I’ll have to see if we can pop that off and just use the brick underneath.  What do you think of these plans for the fireplace… cute?  Do you think we should paint the exposed brick surround a grey color or leave it alone like The Lettered Cottage did?

The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem right?  But what if I don’t want to recover from an addiction to neutrals, it’s not so bad.  I love being surrounded by neutrals and I didn’t really even realize it until I scrolled through my Pinterest boards.  I’m a huge fan of mixing textures, subtle patterns, a soft palette of colors and throwing in some funky metallics or unexpected accessories.  It’s true that our environment affects our well being and I like to think that living in a neutral environment keeps me relatively calm.

I posted a survey last week to see what you guys wanted to see more of and had more than a few votes for more “Room Designs.”  So here we go… look at this glorious dining room design.  I, of course had the new house in mind while thinking about it and some of these items I already own or am planning on owning in the near future.  What do you think?  Do you like neutrals or would you prefer to be surrounded by lots of color?

We walked into the Roseland house last week after they got the drywall hung and I got a little bit giddy… it’s starting to feel put back together again!  The impact windows are all in, and they are perfect.  I went back and forth with the grid layout/size, but I am SO happy with what I chose.  We ended up having to keep the window openings essentially the same as the old ones due to structural components, so they aren’t perfectly centered like I had hoped for… but it’s really not the end of the world.  It’s a little easier to visualiz now that the drywall is up, it’s crazy that a space actually feels bigger when the solid walls go up as opposed to just the studs.

Here’s a link to the floor plan re-design if you want to get a sense of the space.  And if you haven’t seen it, look at the before photos… it looks crazy different already, I can’t wait for the final before and after.
