E has an amazing space on a hillside overlooking the water. I think she would agree with me when I say it needs a bit of freshening up to live up to its full potential. Here is the loooooong wall with the fireplace, we are going to flank it with built-in cabinetry:
Here is the other side of that fireplace with the beautiful big window and the big eyesore of a TV which to my surprise is a flatscreen and going up on the wall above the fireplace asap!
This room is used for TV watching, eating, music practicing (both a drum set and a piano), playing and general family mayhem. Pictured below is just a glimpse at why we will benefit from some built in cabinetry. If you look closely that is a lego fireman on the floor of Barbie’s limo just lying there, I wonder what Barbie did to him?;)
Here is a little something we picked up at the Alameda Antique fair, I think it is going into the dining room when we get around to that. E wants an updated victorian mixed with mid century mod look. We are bringing Grandma’s living/dining room into the now.
I started a Pinterest board here with ideas/inspiration. We are using burgundy wine red, gold tones and probably greens. It is all still up for discussion, but she wants to warm it up in there and I am in complete agreement!
