I'm proud to say she liked the navy blue idea in the dining room, and we actually found a grass cloth WALLPAPER in navy that is going to look amazing! She also suggested building a white sideboard from Ikea kitchen cabinets, and top it off with a quartz top so its a really nice piece with lots of storage! I can't wait to start that room! The living room will mainly be white, with accents of navy blue and perhaps a new sectional couch with chaise eventually.
The bedroom is pretty straight forward, just paint is the big thing, and she liked the grey idea and suggested an accent wall in the alcove in a darker grey or again grass cloth wallpaper. She also suggested a bigger rug and agreed that we needed some full curtains and a big freestanding mirror.
For the basement, lots of white built ins and bookcases and a soft grey paint all around, including ceiling and doors, to make it one continuous space from front to back. I think we are going to start this room first. I need a new desk (I found one from Ikea), we are building in shelves on the back wall, and using bookcases for the sides of the room, bringing the shaggy rug from the bedroom downstairs, and getting some better lighting.
