It also comes in blue and brown if you're interested.

From the moment I laid eyes on this bedroom designed by Meg Braff in the October issue of House Beautiful, I was in love. Braff covered the walls in Phillip Jeffries' Manilla Hemp in Kelly Green, and what a statement these walls make! The texture and color are so scrumptous! She balances out the intensity of the walls with all white furniture. The combination of kelly green and white just makes me smile. You gotta love the Jacqui desk and Chloe armchair from Bungalow 5.

For the living room, I love a mantel with a big, beautiful mirror hanging over it, flanked with a pair of sconces and a few accessories scattered across it. I love how a mirror over the mantel reflects the rest of the room, which is art within itself. In the family room, I like something a little more casual and fun. Replace the mirror with a great piece of art, or maybe a cool arrangement of framed prints...of course, fun and funky accessories always add a punch of personality to any room! Here are a few of my favorites...

Here it is...BEFORE
We moved into our first house the last week of March 2009. I was 6 months pregnant and ready to prepare my nest. Thankfully, the interior of the house was move in ready (the previous owner was also an interior designer...we lucked out). This was a must considering my baby bump, and all we had to do was paint a couple of rooms and put new carpet in the nursery. BUT as you can see by the picture, the exterior needed a little TLC. We were going to wait a year or so before we made any improvements, but then Reg got the itch and it was all down hill from there. It all started with Reg trimming a few limbs. Before we knew it, we were cutting down 13 trees and landscaping the back yard. As many of you "houseaholics" (a fellow blogger turned me on to this term..haha) may know, once you do one thing to a house, it's a domino effect.Have you ever seen so many pine trees...they had to go!The mud pit after we cut down ALL the trees...domino effect = much needed landscaping.
Gotta love some new, green Zoysia! This is my husbands new love...minus me and Annie :).The brick on our house was not pretty...it was an ugly, orange color and I was dying to paint over it.
So we did and ta-da here it is!! Hope you like it! I went with Sherwin William Wool Skein for the main color, Panda White for the trim and Hardware for the shutters and doors.
I'm so glad all the workmen are finally out of our hair and we can now enjoy our new and improved home.
