baby, it's cold outside...

it looks like this outside.
so, we're inside finishing this bad boy up...
when we first bought this house you may have seen me on pinterest, digging through ideas for this awkward tv nook above the fireplace. our tv doesn't fit and we had concerns about encasing it anyway; somewhere there would be heat like that. i talked about doing something with shutters - but i didn't really want to close ti off, somehow i was worried it would shrink the room. so, i came up with this idea! the goal is to find a vintage chandelier, really odd/cool shaped lamp, or a some sort of stunning candle holder or candelabra to go  in there; to add light to the room and make good use of the space.
and, in case you missed it on ig, twitter, facebook, or pintrest - i am really into measuring and taping this week, because look at our bedroom! eep! the color is wheat bread by behr from home depot and goes perfectly on top of the already off white walls. it was a pain in the butt to finish but so worth it in the end!

I love the stripes in the bedroom and the nook idea sounds awesome!

I love your striped walls! I think I have an unhealthy obsession with stripes. Our laundry room is striped but vertical and greeeen. :)

I love what you did above the fireplace. I've seen those little cubbies before in newer homes and think it's kinda dumb, but you've made it look really great! Good luck finding the perfect chandelier!
