A Few Updates at the Dollhouse

Monday, July 14, 2014

Hello there!  I hope you're having a great summer so far, even though it seems to be passing by so quickly!

Today I wanted to share a few little updates we've managed to get done at over here at The Dollhouse.

Let's start big.  Unbeknownst to you my foyer has been nothing more than a plywood sub floor for some time now.


  I'm elated to report that over the weekend my hubby changed that situation for the better.









Yay!  And I think there's an opportunity for some sort of fun albeit small piece for the wall to the left, so I'll keep you posted when I find my love match. 

Also, if you follow me on Instagram, then you already know that I recently purchased this sketch from a local artist.


and I've incorporated it into this vignette in my family room.  It's getting increasingly hard to find places to put things at my house.  I have no book cases or  mantels and my rooms are narrow so I don't even have side tables in most cases.  It's a struggle for this collector, so I'm layering art where I can.


So what's next you ask?  I've got my sights set on the hall bath.  When we moved in we tore out the old linoleum flooring and the tub surround  and replaced all of that with new white tile. 

Nothing extravagant, but I wanted white tile to brighten up this dark space and make it feel cleaner.  I don't want to spill too many details about my plan for this lackluster space but I'm very excited about moving forward and I think it will be one of my very favorite makeovers at The Dollhouse.  

In the meantime, this 1970's wallpaper is being stripped 


and will be replaced with a Brunschwig & Fils kind of gorgeous.


and that's just the beginning.  Stay tuned, and if you'd like to stay updated with all things The Green Room Interiors, the best place to find me is on Instagram, so please follow along!

Favorite Fabrics at Calico Corners

Monday, June 23, 2014

Hi guys!  I know summer officially started on Saturday but in my mind summer begins when school lets out.  And for us that was about a month ago,so it feels like summer is racing by.  I hope you're having a good one so far.

Today I want to share some pretty fabrics I found while perusing the Calico Corners website a few days ago. It seems like when I'm sourcing fabrics I keep seeing the same ones over and over again so I took to the interwebs in search of something that felt fresh to me.

Here are some favorites.





I'm in love with the color palette and the sophistication of this Asian-inspired floral.  It also comes in a turquoise colorway.



I know - this one calls to mind "Brazilliance" and Peter Dunham's "Fig Leaf" but I find the charcoal and white colorway so bold and graphic.  Amazing for curtains or a table skirt.



You know I find it hard to resist anything green and flame stitch-y.  This is would be such a great companion to a floral print.


I'm not sure, but I think I like the orderly-ness of this print.  It would be the perfect counterpoint for a free-flowing or abstract print.


So very pretty, and similar to the pricey Flowering Quince by Clarence House. I really like the understated color palette. Surprised?  I wish they offered this in wallpaper.

So what do you think of my picks?  Do you have a favorite here?

Five Favorite Small Kitchens

Sunday, June 1, 2014

If you saw my kitchen reveal in last fall's One Room Challenge, then you already know that I have a small kitchen.


And I think that's a good thing.  Mainly because a small kitchen is efficient.


 Most everything is within arm's reach and clean up is a breeze.


I'm so impressed with the kitchen above.  The more you look at it the more details you'll find.

This kitchen looks like it's in a historic home.  Notice the big windows, the mill work and the floors.  Old houses typically have small kitchens.  I think this is a beautiful update that fits the space and honors the era of the home.

I love this kitchen. The art in those frames and the way it's installed - so right.

Charmer.  That floor. Those baskets. And if I'm not mistaken there's grass cloth behind the shelves.

Have I convinced you, or do your prefer a big kitchen with miles of counter space?
