Before and after. This is the front door of my home – when I first bought the house 5 years ago and now. As you can see the entrance was originally neat, organized and beige - not me at all. It is now loud, colorful and a little gaudy – much more like me. Beyond the after door, is an after house. When I bought the house, the interior was white and gray throughout – white walls and doors, gray carpet and cabinets. It is now full of color – the master bedroom is pepto-pink, the master bath is hot pink, the guest bath is lavender, the office is pale green with red accessories, the sewing room is tangerine. I even painted the cabinets in the kitchen as I couldn’t afford to replace them – they are no longer white and gray, but yellow, green and blue.
To me, a home should reflect the personality of its owner and not follow some master decorating rules set by someone else. Over the past couple of years, I’ve had several friends describe my house as a happy house. That makes me smile.
