We’ve slowly been chipping away at our home projects for our Ryan Homes Olsen model. We’ve been in our home just about 3 months now, so it’s been a slooow process. 😉
First up, our Master Bedroom. This room is absolutely huge. I didn’t realize quite how big it was until we put the king bed in. We are waiting to paint until all repairs have been made, so we haven’t hung any art or pictures yet.
Here’s the view from the entryway. The door leads to our master bath, which we are totally renovating so I’ll save pictures of that for later.
I love the light! My husband installed it on a dimmer switch pretty easily too.
Here’s the view from the other corner. Does it make anyone else crazy that the bench and duvet are both off-center? I definitely fixed that after I noticed it in this picture.
As I mentioned earlier this week in my repair issue post, definitely keep an eye on your tray ceilings if you’re building with Ryan Homes. This is our actual finished ceiling.
Here’s one of the stalactites we chipped off to give you an idea of size. We’re going to repaint the room anyway, so we’ll just sand them down. But seriously? It shouldn’t have been left like this. It’s all the way around.
We also finished the Guest Room. This will be super important with baby on the way in March so grandparents have a place to stay.
It has its own bathroom, which is a jack/jill that connects to the bonus room.
This is one room where we’re using our old furniture, but I used chalk paint to redo my husband’s old side table.
Here’s the after! I found knobs, but am still looking for the perfect bars. I’m also painting two other pieces the same color.
Finally, we finished my side of the bonus room. Again, still need to paint and hang things up. We went with Ikea furniture here, but I love having a place to craft. It’s home to my paper and sewing machines. Eager to get started on a quilt for our little man in here. =)
We also made a trip to Sherwin Williams to grab blue for the nursery and neutral paint for the rest of the house.
We want to use gray/beige tones throughout the house. I want more brown/beige downstairs and more gray/beige upstairs in our master. It’s so hard to tell what the paint looks like from the chip, so here are our actual swatches. The background paint in our house is Shell White. We decided to go with #2 Requisite Gray for our bedroom and #7 Dhurrie Beige for our main level.
We also picked nursery colors for our little boy. It will be Dhurrie Beige, Reflecting Pool (on top), and Regatta (far left). The other two blues are Endless Sea and St. Bart’s. If we were just doing one color, I’d go with Sherwin Williams St. Bart’s, but I decided to go with the contrast between the dark navy and teal. It also compliments our bedding better.
Looking forward to having our repairs finished so we can have the house painted. Then it will be time for finishing touches. I hope to share our kitchen, family room, and nursery next!
