As soon as we set foot in our "soon to be home", we knew it was the one. A and I walked into the master bedroom and gazed out the picture window at the gorgeous, green rolling hills. We were in love and had to have it! Now keep in mind, we fell in love with the view which blinded us to some other features of the house. Like the wall to wall, sea foam green carpet and pale pink walls throughout. But paint and flooring, is easy. We could handle that. Right?
So you can see that landing on a house that wasn't completely move-in ready was a big deal. I'd like to tell you that we got all DIY and tackled the improvements ourselves. But that's not how this story goes. After months of researching flooring, painting sections of the wall to see the colors in every possible light, and getting tons of vendor estimates, we were ready to commit. Alcazar colored Ralph Lauren carpet in the bedrooms and dark hardwood flooring throughout the rest of the house. Pottery Barn paint colors. Tans. Beiges. Blues. Greens.
It's amazing what a new coat of paint and flooring will do for a house. A and I were thrilled with the way that our little house remodel turned the place into our home! My next door neighbor who had seen the house before our changes said she couldn't believe how different it looked. What do ya think?
