Feeling so accomplished here as this is my second post of the week and I have photos in the can for another full week. While I write this we are in the mountains for the week and I have been doing so well on my fitness. I have been doing HIIT runs, yoga and long walks daily. I am at a point where I can feel my age and I know if I don’t keep moving it will be a slippery slope. So my days here in the mountains have been a lot of self care. I turned 59 a couple of weeks ago and time isn’t slowing down so there is no time like the present to “choose happy” and be good to me.
The weather is turning cold (highs in the 50s) for a few days so we will be heading to the city for dentist appointments and hair cuts later this week. I am having a time with my hair so it’s time for a trim.
As I go through this post I will point out a few of my home DIYs from this spring. In the family room I painted the walls a linen color and the cabinetry white. I added crystal knobs to the cabinet doors. I left the shelves the oak color because I like the contrast. The top of the fireplace mantel was also left the oak color. I hung sheer curtains and the room now is so calming and comfortable.
I just got this top and I was mostly drawn to the beautiful yellow color. Plus it is the perfect top for hot weather. It has been mostly in the 70s and 80s which means its time for comfortable tops. I wore a pair of white jeans but white shorts would be great with this top too. Summer sandals and a fun bag completed this look.
Behind me is our dinning room. I painted the walls above the chair rails the same linen color and below the chair rails I painted it a dark blue. It is called dark denim. I hung dark denim blue and white curtains and we had the built in buffet top replaced from tile to granite that has tons of dark blues. Love this room so much!
I love these sunglasses so much that I ordered them in a gradient tortoise color. I wear them all the time.
Formal Living Room
The formal living room will have to be painted by professionals because of the two story high walls and ceilings. I plan to tackle that this fall when we are there full time. Wood floors go throughout the house and I want to sand them all down and re-stain them. I haven’t decided on a color. The wood on the steps is in a herringbone design and I love them.
I’ll show you the kitchen in a future post. We updated the counter tops to granite, painted and put in new appliances. I love the space so much and it is perfect for cooking which is another hobby of mine.
