Decorating My Mom's new home

My mom recently bought a new home....not new but new to them.  It's huge and has a lot of potential....The previous owner was an older woman and had finished everything with older style stuff like brass finishes, floral/pink lighting, pink bathroom tiles, blue carpet, etc.  the house was built in 99 so its not OLD but with her finishes it LOOKS very old...There are so many different walls and breaks in the walls that it was a little hard for my mom and dad to visualize the colors I picked out especially because they are in their 50's lol  but they are loving it...I am going to start posting before and after pics...I love this process so I hope you do too

colors for living room, dining, kitchen

bedroom and bathrom

I designed this for the dining room cabinets (see below)  my mom was trying to find a cabinet to place in the middle but I didn't think anything would go so I suggested this or a built in storage bench with upholstered top . (they haven't decided yet)

My mom was not feeling the red until she saw it painted and now she loves it...:)  I told her to trust me 

Love the red....makes the room seem so much bigger because the high wall is noticeable and not lost  

gorgeous with the cabinets 

Hall is painted

basement didn't need much work...painted ceiling and walls 

More to come.....
