Our front door opens up into our front room/family room. I've never liked those names so we decided to call it the Rose Room. For the past 7 years, our Rose Room has been a comfy-cozy type of decor. About 2 years ago I started feeling claustrophobic whenever I entered. That's when the makeover wheels started to turn in my mind. Since then, I saved every picture, idea or thought I had.
A clean, fresh, minimal look is what I wanted. I loved the old comfy-cozy look, but it was time to break out and get some fresh air! I also wanted to incorporate my small collection of blue and white willow ware pieces!
The Rose Room walls were originally painted rose and sage, with wall paper behind the couch. Our new colors are linen painted walls, with blue and espresso decor.
Here are the before and after photos of our Rose Room makeover...I hope you enjoy...

BEFORE...this wall was for my kids photos, but, I had a difficult time keeping the photos straight, so I opted to put them on the shelves by the stairway (stairway photo is farther down this post)
AFTER...I love the the shelf behind the couch!
AFTER..the scrambled letters on the wall spell our last name.
BEFORE...we changed out all the mix-matched area rugs and replaced them with blue and white braided rugs.
