This is the before of our family room. It had one huge window, and a nice mantel, but that's about it. It needed some good love. See "after" below.
Again, much warmer, and more inviting. Not sure if you can tell from this picture, but notice the recessed lighting that was added to highlight the art? It's on a dimmer (big fan!) so it gives this room that certain somin'somin' it needed.
This curtain fabric was selected (more on fabric selection in an upcoming post) because often master bedrooms are too feminine. I'm BIG on not over feminizing your man's room. Come on girls! This fabric was an alternating pin stripe that reminded me of a man's suit, and a fringy pattern that really complimented one another. See art wall wash lighting here, too.
Playroom before. WAY before. Before what? Before I had a shower, I think! Ugh!
Playroom AFTER! Can you tell I'm a warm palette girl? This room made me so happy!
Here are just a few more rooms I like, but don't have pics of befores.
