I’ve spent the last several months updating the Elwood’s wonderful home in the country…it sits on a pond nestled in between the rolling hills. Horses graze in the fields, two ducks hang out around the house and the main entertainment is watching the bird feeder outside the kitchen table window. So peaceful…and a bit outdated! They have lived here for more than 15 years and were ready to make some changes. Joe has some great ideas about what he wanted to accomplish with colors and we put the color wheels into motion.
Here’s the den before…
and after. The country red fireplace is a Joe original…don’t you think it makes the room?! The room looks larger with a cleaner palette. Joe wanted to showcase his many pottery and wood carving collections in this room. He loves to go to auctions and he found great pieces to secure them.
The new leather furniture is very comfortable…we’re still looking for an additional accent chair and pillow fabrics. On the walls: Benj. Moore 1039 Stone House.
Meet Shuma, the Elwood’s 17 year old cat. He’s modeling his favorite pose!
We think Benj. Moore Honeymoon is the perfect solution! New window treatments, lighting hanging Laura and Joe’s Fiesta Ware on the wall makes the room come alive.
The powder room…
and the master bedroom…sunshine yellow keeps them up at night!!
Now they enjoy a relaxing room with Benj. Moore HC#146 Wedgewood Gray on the walls, beautiful linens on the bed and silk curtains on the windows.
