I’m spending so much time scour Pinterest, Instagram and blogs trying to decide what my style will be. I’m what I would consider hand me down eclectic. which won’t change, but what is the overall feel I’m going for.
What I really love about this house is all the built in storage. It is homey and cottage-y. I will make sure to enhance all the moldings and builtins with my paint choices. White trim and cupboards is a definite yes. The family room and kitchen have beams that have been painted white and I will keep that, but these and the crown moldings are getting lost against the white ceilings. I will change the ceiling color just enough to make these features the glory of the rooms.

I’m pretty sure when I saw the builtins I was sold. Totally ready to move in. I love the “dressing room” part of the master bedroom. There are matching builtins on either side of the 3-way mirror and a make up desk. I can imagine a large mirror hanging above it with some new farmhouse style good lighting will be perfect. Eventually I may replace the counter or maybe open up the master bath into the dressing room area.

A big challenge is definitely going to be the master closet. and it is just a closet. very basic and very small. With some fresh paint and some smart storage choices I will make the best of it. It’s a great time top finally pair down to that Capsule Wardrobe I’ve been planning.
