Remodel colors

FyniteApril 25, 2013

We just bought a pretty little Streng home (Mid-century modern) and we want to make it look nice, but also keep some of the uniqueness and flare of the home. So here are some of the colors we are running through the house. (All colors picked by my wife, so she gets all the credit)

The public areas are all vibrant and warm. As she says "I like to feel like I'm awash in light" The house has great natural light, that just hits these walls and gives them a radiant glow.

(The hearth will be black, it hasn't been painted yet)

The private rooms are calmer, with blues and greens, more for relaxing. This is the Master Bathroom (the trims aren't done on the rest.)

Our daughter's room is designed to just be fun. She has green rolling hills with a blue sky above. (The edges aren't finished yet, but you get the idea.) We are going to be adding alphabet animal wall decals.

Edited to fix links

Thanks, I'll try to post some more pictures once the tide of moving boxes drops below the level of my sanity. But the quick summary is it came out really nice.
