He has had some amazing roommates/friends over the last few years, and as they move out of Adam's house in the next few weeks, we're excited for their new adventures and ours!
I can't believe that his home will be "our home", and it's just now beginning to sink in.
While I live with my parents before the wedding, we're beginning to transform the house into a contemporary, personal, and cozy oasis. To have many of our projects done by the wedding, it will be a nice retreat after we return from our honeymoon trip and adjust to living with each other.
So thankful for such a hard working man who has provided SO much for us. He even told me that he had waited to paint a long time ago when he bought the house, because he knew one day we'd be making this our home together.
Love that man!
Our home (which is so bizarre to say) was built in the 1970's, has 4 bedrooms, a wonderful living room area to entertain, and a nice big kitchen. Although the space is incredible, there are some features that aren't so lovely.
i.e. a wood paneled living room!
Yup, painting the paneling, lightening up the room, and adding out own style is project #1. Even painting sample colors over the wood gave the room a whole new look. I'm so excited!
Here is some cozy living room inspiration that we love...
Also, I am thrilled to update the kitchen, especially since I love cooking. Adam has done extensive work gutting the bathrooms and kitchen, and it's just ready for a fresh coat of paint and modern twists.
We're planning to remove the 1970's architectural detailing, paint the cabinets white, the walls a deep shade of rich gray, and swap out the cabinet hardware. The result? A fresh and inviting space that relaxes and inspires creativity.
One of my favorite parts of the kitchen is the bay window that lets in tons of light. I can't wait to see the final look. We love these spaces...
Eventually, we'll get to painting the hallways a warm color, and all of the doors and trim pieces white. So fresh! Lots of cute projects that we like too to make it more personal.
We're excited to also paint the master bedroom so that it feel relaxing and calm. A soothing sage green with our brown Crate and Barrel bedding would be great! Can't get enough of these rooms...
Excited to share real life before and after photos in Feb/March! Have you redone a home before? How did you find your inspiration?
Let me know if you have any tips or great advice!
