Finished At Last-Probably Not!






It took quite a few weeks, but we finally finished our living room-kitchen makeover. Now the two rooms are one and it makes such a difference in the spaciousness of our home. We can see what is going on in the kitchen or living room from any given spot. We have more room to sit and be with each other. We put down a great new floor in the kitchen that I would recommend to anyone interested in changing their floor. It is a product by Armstrong called Allure. It was easy to put down and cleans up so well. It looks like real tile without the coldness and hardness of tile. I have repainted the kitchen and changed some of the decorating elements. Our living room is yellow and the kitchen is a light turquoise or aqua, with accents of both colors in each room. I am tending toward a little cottage look in the kitchen with a retro twist. I love the 40's 50's look and so I am incorporating a little of that with hints of red with the yellow and aqua, while keeping it "cottagey" too.
