The Farmhouse is getting a facelift!
Yes, that adorable little (heated) house has new residents: Barefoot Dwelling. These girls had a vision immediately. And what has inspired me so about this is that their vision was totally different from what mine had been.
I don’t know about you, but someone with a fabulous vision, totally outside my usual style, inspires me like little else can. It’s what invigorates me every time I travel, and to have such a vision unfold right here in front of me is exciting!
So here’s a little BEFORE & AFTER fun for you:
BEFORE, Room 1: Let’s start in the first room, which was the kitchen. You may recall how it looked when we first took possession of it in July 2012:
After removing the contact paper ‘wallpaper’ and vinyl ‘parquet’ floors:
Two and a half years ago, after applying Farrow & Ball’s Pavilion Grey :
BEFORE, Room 2: Then on to the second room, as we found it 2 1/2 years ago:
After removing the rest of the contact paper covering the wanescoating, and more of the vinyl ‘parquet’ floor:
Then, after a fresh paint job (Farrow & Ball Pavilion Grey) in 2012:
AFTER, Room 2: Now with a a fresh white facelift, complemented by a contrast wall of Farrow & Ball’s Churlish Green (yes, that’s a paint name, don’t you just love it??!!)
And check out the sleek mid-century aesthetic.
This room has NEVER been so cool!
More great stuff is being added through the week, and you’re all invited to come take a look this weekend, February 20-22, Fri/Sat 9am-4pm, Sun noon-4pm. I hope you’ll find it as fresh, original, and inspiring as I do!
