So neat and clean. Just wondering why you chose to run the floor boards lengthwise along the long axis of the room (which kind of emphasizes that length) and not across that axis (which might widen the feel of the room?)

One of the most fascinating do-overs Apartment Therapy has ever posted. Brilliant. The Cinderblock greenery. The wall of white frames and matting. The kitchen wall of white dishes. The kitchen wall of stainless equipment. The decoupage. Everything. Just brilliant. Sofia, I think you've found your calling.

So calming. So comforting. And isn't that what a home should be? What a fantabulous nesting place. Great work...and thank you for sharing.

Minimalism rules! No "pops of color" even allowed for me. Color must be pale, subtle and in the same palette. No contrasts -- they take too much energy. When in doubt, go white. Want my environment to soothe me.

Or...give them something that will give them a sense of pride -- a donation in their name to someone who really needs it. There are tons of charities who will do that; I like Heifer.org.

I would suggest using nature and nature-related accessories as decor to soften the graphic nature of the grout lines -- a plant or two, seashells, a shower curtain with ocean waves or, say, ferns on the print and window curtains to coordinate, but not match. A seashell-framed mirror. Nice basket under the sink (fill with towels). Either a sand color or a pale green on the walls. Keep it all light colored to give an airy, expanded look.

We've been looking for a pale sea glass color for a bathroom and love the swathe in the picture. Can you tell us it's name and manufacturer?

4 Things To Consider When Picking A Wall Color

There's even more to it. In the midst of a miserable divorce, I thought I was saving precious energy by skipping making my bed. Then I read an article on divorce and sadness that mentioned how many people quit making their beds. The article made the point that making your bed starts you off in your day with a sense of control and accomplishment that energizes you to go on to other mini-points of control and accomplishment in your day. It worked for me and I recommend it for others.

Love it all. Streamlined furnishing is great for renting and I, for one, think your mother's furniture works fine for renting. Yes, if you were going to live there yourselves, you would have chosen differently...but this all looks so clean, simple, welcoming now. I would have voted to keep the flamboyant green wallpaper on either the walls OR the ceiling, but you have plenty of time to make changes in the future, too.

Thank you so much for sharing this experience.

I'm a granny and if that's what's you call your grandmother (whose room this is), who can object to identifying this room. I, for one, love it. Like the neatness (research shows it is UNstressifying) and lining up the shelving. You could put any color you love behind the shelves.

Like the clean, fresh, readable, uncluttered look. The white gives you a nice background for whatever you run.
