Don’t try this at home

This was a smallish, unassuming townhouse that made me smile. The decorator made some bold color choices. She chose sand color walls and mostly lime green and purple accents. This is not something to try at home kids, because this could go south very easy and I daresay, based on the zillions of homes I’ve been in, this color combination is easy to get wrong.

Having spent the day in this house, I think the success with this particular home is that the  colors were used sparingly and they are easily changed out. The lamps in this house made my day. Beautiful. The girls room upstairs (finally) had a female athlete on the wall. My favorite color is pink, but I do NOT like pink walls or the way most decorators go out of their way to make sure you know the gender of the person living in the room. No No No. I’d like to see a more grown up girls room at least once.

In spite of the pink paint, I loved the fabric of the curtains and the dresser in that room. The boys room had a vague sports theme without being over the top. The master had wood floors, which I love in a master bedroom. Also, Granite. Why must we always have granite? The upstairs baths had quartz (!!!!!) , at least. And whoever the builder used to install their wall tile must have had a few at lunch. There is nothing worse than having a tile backsplash and being able to tell where the sheets began and ended.

This house is whimsical and I’m not penalizing the decorator for the granite. It was about 2500 sf and had an open floor plan. Oh, and P.S. – They had fake food. I love fake food. And yes, I took pictures.
