updating the living room {the ORC editions}: week 2

This is week 2 of the One Room Challenge: the living room edition,
and like most people I started with paint:

We went from Cricket green to Palladian blue
and the room is so much brighter!

 This is going to be perfect later in the season
when all of the trees get their leaves
and the house gets darker!

I decided to paint the under window the trim color (ivory ish)
instead of the wall color.
I also spend some time recaulking everything,
the work was a little rough under the windows,
(it is not original to the house),
 I think some of the trims were painted for the first time!

The other side of the large L shaped room is also looking bright and fresh,
and very naked!
here is the reminder for my inspiration:

It is going to be time to put up some art and curtains ....
Until next week,

Happy DIYing!


  1. Looks great! I love seeing your before and after. My husband wants to repaint every room off white. BLECH! I need color. :-)

    1. Thank you Xyra, not a fan of off white either, even if it can look nice too! Just not for me, I am entering my "blue" phase! The green will have to stay outside....if spring ever shows up!


Merci pour vos commentaires, I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
