Renovation update

Renovation update

I felt it was time for an update on our attic renovation on the blog again, because a lot has happened the last weeks. Especially the last few days, since we added color! Yay!

So, let’s start at the beginning.

The attic needed to be isolated and when that was done, a lot changed already. Such a different view coming from all that wood, see previous post here. While not nowhere finished, this already made us feel like it was becoming a room more than a construction pit. So we were of course very happy about that!

And the other side, cleared of all wallpaper. Ready for the next step!

So on one side we added green..

And on the other side pink..

And that’s the result! You can see that it still needs work, still needs more white. But hey, we’ve come a long way and we’re happy with every step forward!

So we decided to do things a little different in the attic. While most of our house can be best decribed as scandinavian, light and bright, we always loved those dark moody interiors. We felt the attic was a perfect way to try if this would fit our style! So we painted one wall a very dark green, which we absolutely love. And because I felt it wouldn’t look good to have two dark walls facing each other, we searched for a different color for the opposite wall. And we chose a beautiful beige-ish pink. While there is still so much left to do, I can’t wait to add furniture here and create that warm, moody, filled with sphere interior-feel even more.

While colors are always hard to capture on photos, you can see it’s a very warm pink. Exactly what we were going for!

A lot left to do, but a little paint makes all the difference already. When all the walls are done we will paint the floor, white. Oh man, can you tell I’m excited? I really can’t wait to decorate this, for two reasons. The first reason is I love decorating, ha. But the second reason is that all of the stuff that used to be in our attic, is now everywhere else in the house. In our bedroom, in our daughters room, etcetera. So when we have a room ready, it means we can have a little of our normal house back as well. And I might be mostly looking forward to that ;)

Thank you for reading and of course there will be another update when we finished this room even more.
