Color, color everywhere but ne'er a drop to drink.
I ripped up my carpet last weekend. It was old and stained and the motivator was big trash pick up week. I had been wanting to switch over to concrete floors for a long time as it would better fit for the casual lifestyle we lead. I was so fortunate to find Artisan Concrete to do the job and lucky that they were available. I absolutely LOVE the color of my floors! Aside from the horrendous mess and hard work of moving everything, it was totally worth it.
Isn't it amazing how well it goes with my painted wallpaper? And my art? And it looks totally fabulous with my art quilts!
I did not expect the sound to echo so loudly with the floors, so I had to invest in a few new area rugs, one from IKEA and one from Pottery Barn. And, as in all things remodeling, once you 'fix' one thing, the other stuff looks old and bad. I ended up repainting all my woodwork including the climbing wall, and buying new white drapes for the windows (which also required drape rods and an epic installation). All completely delightful in the end. I love my new room. It feels fresh and clean and relaxing!
