Ten Years of The Painted House

I started this blog in June of 2006–10 years ago!  While it has morphed through the years and fluctuated between daily posts to lengthy blog breaks, The Painted House has been a welcomed source of encouragement, friendships, and fun for this introvert.

This is the first photo I ever posted, our little family of four, newly transplanted to the North Carolina mountains from Texas.www.tphblog.com Oh, I miss those little ones!

Thank you so much for reading along here at The Painted House.  The community you offer is a blessing.  To the future!

Summertime Times

If you have kids at home this summer, you know where I’m coming from.  It’s a juggling act of maintaining my own gig while also keeping the kids occupied and off their screens as much as possible.  We have a summer to-do list to tackle and a pool pass to wear out.  While I will take a little time to paint and tackle some things around the house, I’m officially taking the summer off to be with the kiddos.

On the days I do let them gorge themselves on video games, I want to paint, clean out closets, cook some new recipes, and do some dekorating stuff.  Mainly, I want to get the living room finished–the drapes and paint the walls.  Blush bandwagon, folks!  Look at this lady’s lounge from Amy Morris, as seen by me at the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Southeastern Showhouse this spring:
www.tphblog.comIt’s gorgeous, no?  I love that russet banquette with the blush walls.  I’m gonna try it and see if I like it.

Sooooooo, happy summer to you all!  I might check in here before school starts, but I will be around on Instagram.  XOXO

Favorites from the One Room Challenge

I hope it’s not too late to share some One Room Challenge rooms that caught my attention.  The talent displayed between the featured designers and participants is inspiring.  There is a room style for everyone…even a crazy red-painted 80s playroom.  Wink, wink.
