  • From Painted Paneling to Creamy Bisque, Our house was built in 1977 and when we bought it 20 years ago, the first thing I did was paint all the paneling and the dark walnut cabinets a fresh clean white and change the countertops and appliances from harvest gold to white.  Ten years later, I livened things up a bit with the red walls.  This year it was time for a total gutting. Everything, including the dumb wall that separated the front door from the dining room (and made moving any big furniture into or out of the house a major problem) was removed.  The laundry room door beside the counter with the microwave was moved around the corner to allow more kitchen space.  Fridge and oven both moved to right wall.  My whole color scheme was based on what color oven to get.  I knew I didn't want stainless steel (just a personal aversion), so I either had to go with white or bisque. This decision was forced upon me early as Sear's had a 50% off sale on Kenmore double ovens.  I took paint swatches from Lowes to Sears to see exactly what color I would be dealing with in bisque as you know how department store lighting is.  I walked around the mall for a couple of hours studying this paint swatch and made my decision: bisque it would be (Waverly Bay Oyster in the paint swatch matched perfectly).  Everything else fell into place.  The cabinets have a conversion varnish on them tinted to my color.  This finish is like an automotive finish - very durable.  Countertops are Caesarstone chocolate truffle, and hardware and faucet are oil rubbed bronze.  The Kohler smart divide sink is biscuit., Kitchens Design

  • My Loft in the Old Albuquerque High School, Here's my loft in an old high school that was built nearly 100 years ago. I've incorporated two design elements, old world and modernistic design (at least i tried lol). Deep reds, golds and subtle hints of greens that are found throughout the loft in fabrics, art and even in Moroccan Lanterns, this would be the old eastern world influence. On the other hand there is a modern flare present in the clean lined furniture, and monochromatic accents, there's even a cowhide rug that i have noticed in modern design lately. Its still a work in progress, still need to splash some paint on the walls and i have a library ladder that is in the makes to access there loft and some book shelving im building. Ill have pics up as soon as its finished. I hope you all enjoy. :) , Living Rooms Design

  • Living Room Contemporary Remodel, Another room finished in our entire house remodel.  We updated a worn-out 80's decorated space with warm wood flooring, neutral gray walls and pops of yellow and turquoise to create our dream living room.   We still have to find the perfect reclaimd wood dining table to complete the look, but at least we're no longer embarrassed when we open our front door!  Every bit of the work and decor was accomplished on a budget of $4000, including the construction, which moved a doorway, new drywall texture and an added expanded concrete step down from the entry.  Most everything in the room, except for the flooring are vintage pieces found at garage sales/estate sales/auctions, and we did all of the work ourselves, including the art., Living Rooms Design

  • Victorian-style Parlor, As a teenager we moved to an old Gold Mining town in Northern California and lived in an 1872 Victorian home. We moved away and I was sad to leave the house. This room has the feeling & coloring of my old house even though my house isn't old. I first became aware of Decorative Painting/Faux Painting in that old house. It had large pocket doors between the front & rear Parlors that had been wood grained to look like oak even though they were really pine ., Living Rooms Design

  • Computer Nook Area, I had this 7ft table made specifically for this space from Cosmo's Woodshop on Etsy. It is actually a laminated table using a technique I saw on Color Splash from HGTV. 
The chair was purchase on Ebay for $165 from furniturecreations. 
The paintings were custom made for me using the colors that matched my home from a lady on ebay Art-of-texture. These paintings ranged from $100 to $175. 
The lamps were a finding at HomeGoods for $50 a piece. 
The garden stools were a find on Ebay 2 for $89. 
This area is meant to be for computer / reading my magazine space. Where the TV would not distract me when i was surfing the net or looking thru my books, that is why I did not place it directly behind the sofa. , Living Rooms Design

  • No more Country in "The County" Maine, We have redesigned the layout and style in our 1935 Colonial Home Living Room to make the fireplace more of a focal point and the style more contemporary.  The room was green and dark when we first looked at the home in 1998 and then we painted it an off white and just kept with the Country look for years until recently when I got inspired by RMS and decided I wanted a change.  The budget was quite limited so there was no new furniture purchased except the coffee table and end tables which I built and stained myself for about $100.  Other changes include new 2-piece slipcovers from JC Penney which were bought on Ebay for much less ($120 total to cover the sofa, loveseat, chair and recliner!!), Area rug from Walmart ($80), Lined Grommet top Striped Curtains from Ebay($10 per panel, normally $40 retail), Table Lamps from Ebay ($20 each), TV mount for $25 on Ebay, Slate tiles from Lowes $2.15/sq.ft.  Hubby built new mantle.  I made frames for mirror tiles we already had and many of the accessories are from Walmart and the local Family Dollar Store. (We have very limited local retail options in Northern Maine)  I plan to add more accessories over time but right now I can't because I have a 2 and a 4 year old who have already broken a couple things I put in here.  We will also someday refinish the original hardwood floors which run throughout most of the downstairs.  The kids are not done beating it up yet so we will wait a bit. 
Wall Paint Color is Relic Bronze from Walmart.  I know that I will get grief from some about mounting the TV above the fireplace.  I debated doing this for weeks. But it is what worked best at this time for my family and I tried my best to blend it in.  Our sofa is far back enough so it is not too bad to watch.  Hubby loves it and the kids can't walk in front of it as they are too little., Living Rooms Design

  • Room For a Crowd: Silver, Grey & Gold, Large 15' x 18' living room with vaulted ceiling, traditional fireplace and plantation shutters.  Tons of seating provided by matching sofas and comfy brown leather arm chairs - one with a fun circle print ottoman.  Lots of shine and "sparkle" added by large venetian beaded mirror, capiz drum tables, matching crystal base lamps, crystal obelisks, murano glass pieces, and a glass top coffee table.  Loads of fun storage in the silver bar chest and silver sideboard/credenza.  The dark pewter of the sofas, grey flannel lampshades, a rolled steel console table, black granite tiered end tables, grey demi-lune table with brown wood top and a traditional persian style rug keep the room from being too "frou-frou".  Fresh modern art adds a contemporary touch. , Living Rooms Design

  • THRIFTED CHIC, THIS IS PART II FROM MY "FIRST TIME DESIGN" POST: My friend had requested a clean space to come home to - so I suggested a hotel look.  Maintained was the existing wall color, sofa & ceiling light fixtures. Anything else could be changed. Without even realizing it - many of the prints I selected are similar to her wardrobe. She LOVES seashells, the ocean and flowers - but I didn't want to make the space 'themed' in it. Her fave store is Bombay Company - so three existing tables  have been used and are being updated. The P1 pedestal dining table was the 1st new addition to the space. Window panels & hardware were delayed from being on backorder.

This is called "thrifted" becuase I did some thrift shopping for tables to save expenses on the budget. I sanded and refinished: a $5 side table, a $35 side table, a $50 coffee table and an round coffee table [at only $40] but that part of the space is still in progress [I'm refinishing another thrifted piece for it - a $30 buffet for storage]. Sorry if some of the pics are a little dark - they were shot at night with my camera phone.

Thanks for taking the time to view this space. You can read more about the design process and refinishing the furniture on my blog at, Living Rooms Design
