Today we are going to continue our tour of Jen’s house by moseying on in to the bedrooms and bathroom which are all through a little hallway off the dining room. Can I just say, I am a sucker for a vintage built in with all of its original hardware. Seriously, how fab are these?
The laundry shoot was an amazing invention. I suppose having laundry facilities on an upper floor is an even more amazing invention, but I wouldn’t know from personal experience!
The grey on her walls here, by the way, is Sherwin Williams’ Light French Gray.
There are two bedrooms with a bathroom in the middle. Let’s head into Jen’s study first, which also happens to be where she placed the dresser she purchased from me!
Aren’t her floors simply gorgeous? I’m totally envious of their pristine condition. She did have them all re-done before she moved in. Smart move! Jen was asking my advice on how to style this room. I like the idea of a wall quote, like this example from pinterest.
This would work really well around the corner of the wall next to the yellow dresser.
I also think one of those vintage pull down schoolhouse maps would look great on the wall over the desk, don’t you agree? If it had some yellow in it, that would help pull that color over to the opposite side of the room.
Jen’s bathroom has gotten a little makeover with paint.
She painted the walls and the base of the vanity. I know that down the road she’d like to make some more significant improvements in here, but like her kitchen, it is spruced up and presentable as is. I am always a little sad when it is obvious that the original sink has been changed out for one of these. I had this style vanity in my own house when I moved in rather than the original sink. One day I would love to find a vintage sink that would work in my bathroom.
Jen is lucky to have what appear to be the original floor tiles though, aren’t they fab?
Those blue ‘flowers’ made from the hexagon tiles are simply smashing.
Finally we come to the master bedroom. I absolutely adore the color that Jen picked for her walls, Coral Gables by Benjamin Moore.
Isn’t it gorgeous? A lot of us would be afraid of using this much color on the walls, but it works beautifully here paired with the more neutral tones in her upholstered headboard and her pale grey duvet cover. The first time I was in Jen’s house the sun was out and this room just glowed with cheery coral goodness. I am very tempted to borrow this color myself. It would be perfect in my study, or my guest room.
And the light fixture is amazing. Jen added this herself. I was surprised because it looked vintage to me. It’s perfect for above her bed.
And here is Jen’s gallery wall, which also pays homage to places she’s been.
I bet Jen will be adding to this wall over time with more pictures of fabulous places!
I hope you enjoyed your tour of Jen’s home and will join me in thanking her for letting us all have a peek inside. I enjoy seeing what other people are doing with their spaces, especially those with an extra dose of character thrown in and I bet you do too!
Thanks so much Jen! I hope you’ll stay in touch and keep us updated on your future projects.
