HOME SWEET HOME
Ladies and Gentlefolks, we are closing on our first house in Multnomah Village, Portland, Oregon! It’s a 1965 ranch-style second story add on build. Ideas for renovations? It has many custom Oak features and I would like to incorporate some rustic features.
Custom Oak features – hardwood floors, ceiling beam, kitchen/bathroom cabinets, staircase railing – as well as a vaulted ceiling in the living room. Suggestions welcomed. Specifically, what paint colors go well with the color of oak features in the house? Tips on how to select a holistic house color scheme to best transition from bathroom to master to kitchen and living room. What are your favorite blogs to follow and resources for selecting wallpaper, DIY projects, paint color combos, ect.?
I’m not a big fan of the style of railing, cabinets, ect, except I love the Oak wood. The white paint on the Oak is tacky IMO (See the kitchen cabinets and stair railing for reference). Currently the living room is painted 3 different colors and the master has pink carpet and floral pink wallpaper in the Master bath. The double mirror vanity in the Master bath is very outdated as well. I want the home to be true to its mid-century ranch style Pacific Northwest roots, but updated to be clean and contemporary. I like rustic, farmhouse, and Scandinavian styles, but I’m truly open to all ideas and suggestions.
Here are the listing photos to give you an idea of what we will be working with on the renos. That pink carpet has GOT TO GO. Lots of fun projects. I’ll post my ideas and projects as they roll out. Here we go…
