These two things go a LONG way.

hardwoods in kitchen stained

I was able to get a glimpse of the floors before they were covered up. We went a little darker and I’m really pleased with the color. The stain is Provencial. Ryan our awesome builder was able to source vintage heart pine and our “new” old floors look incredible!

porch floor

The Brazilian ipe we used on the back porch is amazing. This is not stained and is just sealed. What beautiful, natural colors this wood has. It’s also the hardest wood so we chose it for these properties for our back porch.

They installed the ceiling fans – which will come in very handy on our Hotlanta days.

screen doors on

And hung the screen doors (which we will seal and stain in a natural, wood color.)

rear porch finished

The rear deck was completed (and will be stained to match the screened doors.)


The painters came this week and have been busy. Here’s the 3rd floor bonus room. We repainted the angled ceilings to match the wall color.


This gives these rooms more of a feeling of space.

Here’s Jonathan’s office (and Addison’s bedroom when she’s 13.)

third floor bath

The upper bath beadboard finally got its primer. We painted these walls a historic Sherwin Williams color – Copen Blue.


A fresh coat of paint sure brightens the upstairs landing up! For this wall color – and the main wall color throughout the house – we mixed a Farrow and Ball Shaded White.

This is the front guest room and it’s the same as the 3rd floor bath – Copen Blue.

I love how the woodwork pops with this color.

my office

My office is also a historic color – SW Independant Gold. We had this color in our living room and den before and it has been a favorite. I needed to reuse it somewhere so no better place than my office.

my closet

The master closets and bathroom are Benjamin Moore White Rain.

And the master is such a pretty, calming blue – Benjamin Moore Heavenly Blue.

master bath painted

I’m still swooning over our master bath…

hall bath painted

And I’m in love with the hall bath. The tub was glazed in Sherwin Williams Sassy Green and the wall color is SW Rice Paddy. Once the dark floors are uncovered, this bath is really going to pop. I’m very, very pleased!


Our designer, Scott, is truly amazing. I’ve really learned a lot working with him on this project.  This is the first time (in over 20 years) that I am going with a neutral throughout my home. I love color and would have painted the walls all different colors. This time we are getting our color through fabrics and accessories. (I guess at 45 it’s time I have a grown-up house!)

powder room lights

I’ll end on another happy bathroom note. The sconces were installed in the powder room and I think they turned out beautifully. All in all – it’s looking real good. T-Minus 16 days…and counting!
