A Lovely Renovation









This style of home is not what I would initially gravitate towards, but something about has me hooked. The painted white floors are worn in just enough, the salvaged pieces used in different ways is something I just adore, oh and let's not forget to mention all the fabulous lighting. I think what makes this place not feel too weathered for my taste is the use of photography. The pieces really stand out and give a slightly more modern feel. Oh, and the sink into me for hours furniture and that tub, well they don't hurt matters either.

Beautiful! However, I wonder how that new look will work out with the beautiful dark chocolate lab I spied on the floor....

I wish I could do more white in my house, but we have a chocolate spaniel. What little white we have is strewn with little brown spaniel hairs :(

love the house but i couldn't live full time with the lack of color. eventually i know some would creep in for me. but yes, i love the worn and previously loved pieces and the use of BW photography throughout.
