Wainscoting How To

Wainscoting after

Our dining room makeover is moving right along. I showed you previously that we gave our dining room a little royal treatment with some crown molding. This past weekend we finished installing wainscoting. “Real” wainscoting uses wood panels on the whole bottom portion of the wall which seemed like it would be difficult and expensive. […]

Erin from DIY on the Cheap took her dining room from gold to a dark blue-gray using Benjamin Moore Nocturnal Gray paint. I love dark colors like this paired with crown molding and wainscoting. It looks great with the yellow accents too. Head over to see the before and after!

Sherwin Williams Mega Greige Bathroom Paint | Involving Color Paint Color Blog

Eat. Sleep. Decorate used Sherwin Williams Mega Greige in their bathroom, which is actually the same color we used in our recent bathroom renovation. It’s a great shade of gray with warm undertones, and my favorite color we’ve used so far. They did a great job in here, and I love how the Mega Greige looks […]

Sherwin Williams Tidewater bathroom paint | Involving Color Paint Color Blog

Simplicity in the South painted their bathroom Sherwin Williams Tidewater, a light turquoise with gray undertones. I love so many of the details in here. The tile above the wainscoting is a great way to incorporate traditional molding in a bathroom, and they added some ingenious storage over the door you have to go check […]

Valspar Simple Gray Dining Room | Involving Color Paint Color Blog

The Family Room has a beautifully decorated dining room painted Valspar Simple Gray (and click over to see her home tour and the rest of her paint colors!). I think this is the type of gray that would compliment many rooms well. It certainly looks terrific with the dark stained table, white nail head trim […]

electrolux range hood RH36PC60GS installation

Last week when I showed you our new kitchen drum light I also gave a sneak peek at our new range hood! I promised details, and details you shall have. If you’re just visiting for the first time I feel like I should give a disclaimer and say those counters are not staying. They are […]

Dining Room Coming Along

We’re moving right along with our dining room reno. Now that the big things are done (painting, crown molding, and wainscoting) it’s been fun picking and choosing accessories to pull it all together. At first when we painted the walls I worried the blue-gray would feel too cold, but once we added some warm accessories […]

Rooms have feelings too

I find when I’m talking to Marty about what we should do to the house, I am always saying “I don’t like the way this feels in here” or “that color just doesn’t feel right”. Our tan living room with white sofas and blue accents feels warm and cheery, our blue-gray dining room with tan […]

Holiday Vignette

I’ve never actually used the word vignette, in writing or speaking, but since Southern Hospitality is hosting a Christmas Vignette party today, I thought it would be a great time to start! I’m not sure what I called it before…a holiday table? grouping? bunch of stuff on that table over there? Notice our nice new […]
