Storybook Cottage Holiday Home Tour Part 1
Just by painting the brown sponged walls a tranquil sea glass it immediately improved the overall look until we have the budget for a more costly remodel.
The 30 year old cultured marble sinks have yellowed considerably over the years but the new wall color helps to tone it down.
For a bit of holiday fun I added some garlands from Christmases past to the mirror and included a jolly snowman.
Sweet Guy’s Bedroom
At the foot of the bed I draped a faux pine garland so that he could hang up the ornaments he has collected over the years. I have always allowed my kids to pick out the ornament that is their heart’s desire. So, while I wouldn’t necessarily relish the idea of Iron Man and Indiana Jones hanging on the Christmas tree I think it looks great on this garland in his room.
The Guest Room
The Master Bedroom
The Sun Room
As this has become a favorite reading spot the additional lighting is just perfect on cloudy days.
Sweet Guy, now 14, asked me to pick out this year’s ornament for him. It was bittersweet until I brought home the telephone booth, London bus and Big Ben from Tuesday Morning. He smiled wide and deemed them “Perfect!”
The only other decoration in this room is above the tv. A perfect place for the Dept. 56 Original Snow Village circa, 1976.
Happy Monday, let’s tour!
