My house is always evolving. It never seems to be finished because I keep adding and changing and experimenting. I guess to give you a peak into my personal style, I'll just go room by room a little over time. I really can't think of one room that is complete so I'll just start at the Entry....

As you can see my walls are painted white. I think white gets a bad rap because we all, at some time or another, have lived in an apartment. I think the difference here is having tile floors. White walls also look great with wood floors. The carpet is the problem! White can really lighten and brighten a dark room which we had because of the covered patio off of the living room. It is also a signature style of Spanish Colonial which I also love. If I had my way, my walls would be smooth but that was way to much of an endeavor, even for me! I do always try to buy the best paint available. It really makes a difference, especially with kids. The finish here is satin which is much easier to clean than flat.

|Tile floors are just screaming for rugs. This is where I bring in the color.|
