with the other bold colors and strong pattern on the bedding this really works and comes off as stunning.
need a great lamp though with a great shade. that part was a bit of a let down.

i love it. i really do. it's fun and fresh and happy. coffee house bathroom floor someone said... well maybe but so what! some of my favorite places have been in coffeehouses and i've been to amsterdam so i can say that. and you will get that joke if you have been too.

if she already had the supplies bought and paid for than even better! however i wonder what the cost comparison would have been to have a new piece of flooring.
either way love it!

almost forgot about those things!!!! my grandma had a plastic runner through her WHOLE HOUSE and plastic mats in front of the sofa, loveseat and the 'easy chair'. come to think about it also under the dining room table & next to beds and the doors. God forbid that red shag carpet came in contact with a human.
when we were kids we've flip over those runners and see who could walk the farthest on them in barefeet before we got caught.
ahhh my hermetically sealed childhood. good times.

nice job!
it's tough when you're first getting started.
good punches of color here and there to break up the white.

i have 5 open shelves in my kitchen, 4 on a full blackboard wall. it's a slippery slope with open shelves, visually and for practicality sake.
my open shelves do not house my everyday dishes.
after having the 4 i know i wouldn't want it throughout my kitchen! love what i have it works for me, but my everyday dishes are behind doors.

i just bought new lower light plants last week. we have long grey winters in helsinki and this last winter seemed to really take a toll on 75% of my plants. broke my heart! however all 5 of my orchids have been in bloom since Christmas and are doing great.

for new plants i did opted for a small jade plant, ferns and a curly edge philodendron which was very interesting and not a variety i had ever seen before.
i had considered a snake plant but the plant store wanted 50euros for a med. sized plant! really!???

i wish they would have shown some pictures of the predicted new plants in question #2.

soooo much better in every way! what a mess to see and deal with before.
that pegboard though... how about a rail system with hooks if having pots/pans out is the only option.

good job. i had no idea where this make over was going.
the fabric and paint did wonders to to add fun and life to an otherwise a really boring traditional piece.
i agree with the other suggestions i also would like to see this piece in a bold color to take it all the home! (& new funky hardware).
again good job!

for 'the treehouse by dobie goldney' i have a small apartment with a lot of color. main neutral or binding color is black throughout the house. i have a gallery wall with family pics in our entryway . i copied all the pics to black and white. hung in black frames mixed in with other black/white simple art, candid shots, architectural shots from trips, some typography, etc. it looks great without the family pics looking like an *old person's collection of their nearest and dearests.
hope this helps give you an idea with what to do with photos.
*i'm a grandma but refuse to have my home look like a grandma house. no disrespect to the grandmas out there.
