In the Previous Post,
I Introduced You to a Little Cottage
on Galveston Island -- oh so
charming with its pastel-colored fish-scale shingles.
Now, come on inside and see what was . . . .
The previous resident, "Terri," went largely with a Shabby Chic look that conveyed a cool island vibe in this little dollhouse of a place, built in 1892, in an area referred to as the East End. You might see a few Victorian touches, too -- here and there.
Here's her place -- soon to be my place:
Love the wall color. And it's right in keeping with Pantone's 2012 color pick, "Tangerine Tango." It might be too bright for some but not for me.
Terri closed the pocket doors and placed a little secretary in front of them to secure it (see below). But, I think I will leave them partially open. I know why she did that; it's the entrance into her bedroom.
A flowery view of the side hall that leads back to another room and on into the kitchen:
The side hall is a deep Victorian red. I plan to paint it a different color. Perhaps either the tangerine or apple green she used in the kitchen. Any thoughts? (The flash of someone's camera diluted the actual color. It kind of looks pink-red here, but it's not.)
Her family room:
The ceiling -- seen below. The differences in look is the result of a former screened-in porch becoming the kitchen.
The very pink bedroom is seen below. Very feminine.
Not exactly "me," but the wallpaper stays -- at least for now.
So, I'm open to any thoughts about how to create a more yin and yang balance.
Thoughts are welcome! ?????????

As always, I enjoy hearing from you! The comment box is below....
