Cosmetic Update

We're in deconstruct mode around here!
We had just begun to renovate (and I mean the deconstruct kind of reno) a section of our house when my guy underwent total hip replacement surgery.  He was originally scheduled for surgery in May but the surgeon's office called saying they could take him on January 26th -- so, off we went. 
He's home and has begun a long and painful recovery.  I guess we've begun construction in more than one way around here.  And, so, instead of a major renovation, which is temporarily on hold, I'm going to proceed with renovations of the cosmetic kind and will keep you up to date with before and after.

I've been finding myself seriously luvin' grey & white with a blast of color and have begun to collect fabric and other goodies for inspiration.  The master bedroom is first.  For those of you who know me well, you know that I am seriously addicted to green.  And I mean seriously!  So this grey & white thing is a huge departure and I can't believe how drawn to it I really am (but, you'll notice the green wall around the window in the background- it's staying).  I'm excited to get started - what do you think?
I'm also really liking this . . .

and this . . .

So, we'll see where it all takes me.

  1. these are gorgeous, Kate!! You have a keen eye for style, colour, texture... maybe I can hire you when we're ready to do some cosmetic changes around here :) ~Karen

  2. Thank you Karen. I'm hoping it all comes together as I envision, but I guess that's part of the fun . . . always a work in progress.
