We are finally finished with the two weeks of hard working home renovating, which has been re-painting our social area from a pale yellow to a mother of pearl color with a little sheen to it, these are the new wall paint colors and we're very happy with the choice, so what we repainted is the dining room, the family and living rooms as well as the entrance and foyer.
We also changed completely our draperies to Hunter Douglas latest trend in shades, the window treatment was long over due and we are very happy with the results, my sweet husband Alejandro was the one who really wanted another look opposed to the material draperies, he wanted something more modern to freshen up the classic style we have. He wanted to lighten the rooms up along with a white paint and he was right, it not only brighten and freshen it up, but it also enlarged it to the view!
I confess I wasn't sure about the more modern look on the windows, although I did wanted to change the window treatment long over due, but as soon as the people from Hunter Douglas came to install them I saw hubby was totally right, I just love, love them!
And here you have it, the BEFORE and AFTER.
Thank you for coming and for your wonderful and very appreciated comments.
Lots of hugs and have a great week y'all.
|BEFORE: Yellow moire draperies.|
|AFTER: I do love how neat, clean and fresh it looks now!|
|My grand Victoria 7, who came with her sister Cayetana 4 to spend a week with us.|
At the left corner by the shades we had an antique silk Chinese black screen that I moved else where, you'll see it in another pic where it is now.
|Moving the black embroidered silk antique screen also lighted and enlarged the space of the living room to the view.|
|AFTER: Here is where I placed the antique silk Chinese screen that was a gift for my in Law's wedding 70 years ago and it is next to the 100 year old camphor Chinese red trunk that was my mil's.|
|BEFORE: Another big window with the yellow draperies that were stained from a water leak from the ceiling that now it's resolved.|
|AFTER... another part of the den.|
|BEFORE: This is the way we had the window treatment on the only large window that leads to the breakfast-round table and the formal dining room areas.|
|BEFORE: Everything is covered and the curtains are taken down to start painting the dining room.|
Thanking you lovely friends for your sweet comments, as you always make my day!
I'm very grateful to the gracious hostesses for having me at their great parties.
