We were back in Aledo last week at the home of some of our favorite clients. Their kitchen, dining room and master bedroom were projects we tackled in 2018 and while they were out on vacation last week, we did our magic on three more rooms of their home. The first room used to be Dad's office. But we kicked him out and made it in to a playroom for the kids. The room is downstairs and just across from the kitchen and living room so Mom and Dad can easily keep an ear on what's going on, making it an easy decision to kick Dad out. He doesn't need any supervision. Normally. Our friend Captain Casual painted the custom mural on the wall and we couldn't be more thrilled with how it turned out.
Table and chairs: All Modern

So, where did Dad's office go? Well, we incorporated it in to the adult space upstairs that used to be a family room/playroom. There is a wine cellar off this room (we knew there was a reason we liked these people!) so again, made sense to relocate Dad and all the other grown ups to this room. It still amazes us what a new coat of paint can do. Sherwin-Williams Modern Gray for the walls and Snowbound for the trim made this such a bright new space.

Our last room was the guest room. The homeowners wanted to keep the bed and one of the nightstands so we found them a matching one, added some paint and brighter accessories and they for sure are gonna have a line of people waiting to stay over. Yes, we did put an area rug on top of the carpet. It's a great way to update a room without the huge investment and hassle of new carpet.
One of our latest projects was a bedroom refresh for a 4 year old boy and 7 year old girl. You remember when you got your "big kid room" and how exciting that was? Mine was a suite of white wicker furniture, Pepto-bismol pink walls and a patchwork print bedding set that probably came from Sears. I loved that room. Little girls' love of pink hasn't changed much in 40ish years so we made sure to add some pink pops to this adorable room redo.

In the boy's room, we painted the existing furniture to brighten up the room and re-purposed the bedding. Isn't amazing what a coat of paint can do?
