My husband and I have agreed that we can each keep one plastic tub of memorabilia. If it doesn't fit in the tub, it must go. Pictures are great, but we experience our lives with all five senses. Sometimes you need/want to touch, smell, or hear something. I like the one tub rule.

Go for it! But make your first order of business ripping off the crazy skirt. Then add lots of colorful pillows. It's a great find.

See, you guys missed a golden opportunity. I would have dressed the gnome up in different outfits, photographed it, and blogged the whole thing. :-)

Lemonade out of lemons, my friend.

I agree with adding lots of white to brighten the space. I also think it would help to add a temporary wallpaper to some of the walls, something with a tone on tone pattern to break up the monotony of the taupe color everywhere. Try something like this:

Ideas for Lightening & Brightening Space Without Painting? Good Questions

I love this series and enjoy each update. I totally sympathized with your frustration when your contractor's did substandard work or failed to catch your vision. I found the most difficult part of renovating is finding someone who is skilled and capable of bringing your ideas to life. Those contractor's are like finding a rare jewel!

I loved the kitchen reno and don't mind a mix of metals. The bathroom tile is AMAZING and the after is gorgeous!! Job well done. My only suggestion would be to change out the knobs for something with more color or detail. The white knobs seem to be working against the white of the cabinet and sink. Maybe try something like the Cloisonne Chrysanthemum Pull from Anthtropologie instead: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/baynote/073786.jsp

I can't wait to see the living room!
