I love decorating. As a teen I would rearrange my bedroom at least once a month. I pretty much still do that in one room or another. Buying the new house has given me ample opportunity to
shop like the crazy person that I am try out new decorating styles and configurations. Since I have gotten quite a few requests to post some photos, I’ll take a break from this Melvin focused blog to show you some of the rooms that are ‘getting there’. I guess it’s still a Melvin post since one way or another, he pretty much claims each of these spaces as his own.
The dining room. I’m still working on accessory configuration and likely need to buy a few more pieces (there is always something to shop for!). Also, the chairs look striped but that is just some fancy thing the cleaning lady does with the vacuum. I have yet to figure out why she does that.
The crazy powder room. I took some serious liberties here with the wallpaper. I still want to switch out the child size builder sink but for the most part I love how dizzying this bathroom is. (I was kind enough to paint the toilet facing wall black. The last thing I wanted was for anyone to pass out while sitting there).
And the great room. Oddly enough the great room eating area seats more than the dining room. I guess as long as no one goes hungry, it’s all good. Also, it’s hard to see but the fireplace is double-sided. You can also sit on the patio and enjoy the heat. I like to think of it as my money burning in that fireplace because let’s be honest, when you are attempting to heat the outdoors, that’s pretty much what it is.
