Our First Official Visitor

5 rooms down, 2 to go....we are currently working on the spare bedroom and the dining room. Our first official visitor is coming all the way from Germany! No, it's not my sister....it's my brother-in-law. I love saying "brother" since I always wanted one! Wasn't as lucky as Matt who has 2 brothers :) In the spare bedroom, we still need to paint the baseboards, doors and windows white. Matt is currently painting the bedroom a "drizzling mist." It's a Valspar color from Lowe's (thanks to his dad who got him a giftcard for his b-day).

Our inspiration for the room started with a poster we bought in San Francisco. I found some pillows at West Elm last summer and we just got a funky rug from Ikea last weekend.

"Drizzling Mist" on the walls.




We are also working on the dining room. The top color on the swatch below is the grayish/purple color we chose. We decided to paint the woodwork white in here as well, to match the kitchen baseboards.

Matt working hard.


Only thing left on the interior will be the office (and some final details in the other rooms). After the inside is finished, we are painting the exterior of the house and planting some shrubs, bushes, and flowers. The exterior has been seriously neglected and we both are excited to work outside when the weather warms up!
