My SIL Angie (formerly of This & That) has an impeccable sense for design (remember the dollhouse?). I’ve always admired that she knows what she likes, and isn’t afraid to take a plunge with decorating. While I find myself questioning, Will I like that in three years?, if she likes something, she’ll go ahead and do it! Whether it’s paint, furniture, or accessories, she’s so confident and decisive in her choices, and I think it shows in her home. And even better, the majority of her decorations are DIY projects that she’s done without breaking the bank.
Angie and my brother Andy recently built a house, and my family was lucky enough to spend Canadian Thanksgiving there while I was visiting last month. I of course begged her to let me share their house with all of you, to which she graciously obliged. She said she was happy for an excuse to buy herself some flowers :).
Today I’m sharing some of the main floor of their home… I hope you all find it as inspiring as I do!
Come on in…
First, the living room. The wall color throughout the main floor is a light gray, which gives the perfect opportunity to add pops of color with accessories.
I love the gallery wall, and how the TV just sort of blends in, without being a focal point in the room. I think that’s a hard thing to accomplish with big TVs (and one I wish I could accomplish in my own house).
I think she chose the perfect tiled back splash for her kitchen. She also added contact paper to the back of the cupboards which make her white dishes look so fresh!
