Have you ever felt like your home renovation takes forever?

It’s been a long very windy road but we’re finally getting close to the finishing line in terms of the actual renovations.  I’m eager to move in to my office space and Luke is feeling particularly impatient and asks me every single day when he can move in.

This happened the last few weeks.

Windows went in. Tile roof back on.

Scaffolding went up.

The house was prepared for stucco.

First layer of stucco up.

We decided we wanted tall windows in the staircase to bring in light.

Waited for the windows.

Eaves were painted charcoal.

Luke home from school most days checking what was done and wondering when it will be ready.

More layers of stucco.

Stucco done.

Scaffolding down.

More waiting.

Finally time for the color scheme! It’s happening.

Steel blues, pale teals for Luke’s upstairs room.

Warm light beam color directs the Stikkwood wood paneling selection.

Paint samples.

I love how colors work together and areas where you can see a few different colors at once. This door opening will get the old glass wine cellar doors that I kept from when we renovated the main part of the house.

This is the bedroom looking in to the walk in closet and the bathroom.

I added a dark green in the closet to pick up the color of the bar stools for the mini kitchen and the headboard that will go in the bedroom.

Love picking it up here.

A bold Art Deco inspired gold bathroom to go with all the black windows.

For the main room we decided on a masculine teal.

First testing paint.

Paint done.

Back wall here will get the Stikkwood later.

Picked moldings and casings that goes with existing house.

Casings up.

All are painted ONYX by Benjamin Moore.

A couple of light fixtures up.

It’s moving along nicely now.

check back next I’ll share the design plans and update on the downstairs with my new office.
