Before our terrible accident I took photos of our front room to enter in Apartment Therapy’s Room for Color contest. I started putting together my entry, and then literally while I was in the hospital, I got Steven to finish writing it and submit it. Ironically, since we got home from the hospital, we’ve had to do a little bit of furniture rearranging to make it easier for me to maneuver in a wheelchair, but eventually it’ll be restored. Making it to the next round of the contest is dependent on votes, so if you like our room, we’d greatly appreciate if you favorite it!
I know I shared photos of the dining room area right after we moved in, but never this whole large front room in its finished state, which serves as our living room and dining room. If you’re curious, here’s what it looked like before we moved in, and a little info about how we chose the color. It was a tough decision, but we’re really happy with it. The right color paint can make such a difference!
In case you’re curious, here are the sources for most of the pieces in the room. A lot of them are vintage, but I highly recommend the vintage shops I’ve linked. You’re certain to find some treasures of your own at these places.
