Today we have Fran of Green Street here to talk about her favorite space. I am especially grateful that she could squeeze in a visit with us today. Fran and her husband are expecting their second baby and planning a move to Vienna, Austria. Welcome Fran!
Thank you Rene for inviting me to participate in your series! Is it me or is it hard to pick a favorite? I've been going back and forth trying to select my favorite. I finally decided I would share my favorite space. I'm not sure you would officially call it a room, but it's an important space because it is the first thing you see walking up our stairs and it is the entryway to all the rooms upstairs.
This space was a labor of love - from painting the stripes to the painstaking task of finding a cool flush mount ceiling light (for very low ceilings). Practically everything in this space was furnished with items I already owned except for the 'For Like Ever' poster and the ceiling light.
This used to be a really bland and boring hallway/landing, but now it is a warm, cozy and unexpected space that makes me really happy every time I walk upstairs. Here is the before:
If you're interested in how the stripes were painted on the wall, you can go here. I was pleasantly surprised at how the stripes made such a big impact in a small space. By looking at the before picture, I never thought my upstairs hallway/landing would eventually become one of my favorite spaces!! It's amazing what a little paint and a couple of details can accomplish!
Fran, the landing is so light and airy now. I can see how this could be your favorite space. Thanks so much for being my guest today! To visit Fran's blog go here.
