I have Metaed..but not Morphosised Yet!



Thanks to Susan for sponsoring this great day, Metamorphosis Monday.  Check out the list at her blog, Between Naps on the Porch.

This is my first time to participate in Metamorphosis Monday, because I am not really very good at “ Metamorphosising”. I am in the process of redoing my bedroom , bathroom, hall and one bedroom.

I gave away all of bedding in our bedroom and I  am planning to remove wall paper, repaint the room,install plantation shutters and recover a chair. The carpet in the bedrooms, hall and living room is medium sage green.


In the Bathroom, I am going to remove wall paper and texture wall and paint and change towel and mat colors.



This is the door  from my bedroom to my bathroom.  It is an antique with antique knob and lock and the flowers were hand painted by my friend, Peggy Bloomer.




The hall will simply be repainted and so will the guest bedroom.

I want to go neutral for a change, but I can still accent with my purple.






My living room is a soft gold and the kitchen will remain light purple.



This is the guest bedroom I will not change.





This is the Mud Room done in Barn wood. I don’t know if you can tell, but there is an old metal roof extending out over the mud room.





These are pictures of the family room.

So Lady decorators and others, I am looking for a beautiful color.  The Bedroom furniture in both rooms is beautiful solid oak and the woodwork is white.

I welcome any and all suggestions on anything you have seen. I need to get started.

I feel unfinished with my bedroom in disarray.

Purple Hugs,

Beautiful rooms. If you want to continue with the neutral and still use a few accents of purple, you can use a creamy/yellowy white, a soft yellowy/beige or I am all of a sudden really loving just a really nice creamy white. I can't wait to see what you choose. Good luck. Hugs, Marty

Good morning Barbara, your house is lovely and decorated very much the way I like to decorate. My guest bedroom has an antique brass and iron bed too. I haven't painted my guest bedroom yet. My home is two years old and there is still much to do. I am painting my great room gold right now. I am in favor of solid deep colors in earth tones. No pastels for me.

I am loving some quiet today. All my darling grands have gone home. time for my computer and missed blogging friends. Hooray! Purple accents look great with earth tones.

That hand painted door is really pretty. :) There's someone at our local trade days that paints on anything and it always turns out so beautiful. She loves to paint on glass tables and reclaimed old windows.
