PROJECT BOULDER BEFORE AND AFTER PART 5







Could someone drag out a reveal more than I can....I want to meet them and we will have a "blog reveal" dance off:)

Here we are on part 5....the rest of the story....well kinda.

Last up was the kitchen and dining area....so let's get to the living room.

Here is a before shot of the entrance


And the living room right off the entrance

You can see that the dining room steps up in the opening on the right.  That is now the kitchen.



The ceiling of the entrance got opened up and the bay window was replaced.

Kitchen is now in the old dining room area.....

Here is a listing picture that shows how the floor plan really changed.....
Another shot which of course makes it look like there is 20,000 square feet of open space but in reality it's the way the lens captured the space....haha #bowlingalley


How it looked when I got there...love the Schumacher wallpaper!


I'm not gonna lie....it was a big room but I did the best I could filling up the space.  Below is my inspiration board.....



I used the faux tree we got from World Market for the last flip and that helped a little.  The sofa came from WM also.

I tried this coffee table but it was just too much tan with the chairs and poufs.

Chairs and rug are from WM.  The floor lamps are from Target.  Poufs are from CB 2


I kind of boxed myself into a corner using this colorful rug....you know this kind of design throws a #blackandwhite gal into mayhem.  #istruggled

Pillows are from WM also!

Dreaded large blank wall....


Used these in the last flip and decided even though they are texture and we have plenty of it in this space.....up they went:)



Since the wallpaper really acts as art...I did not hang anything over the sofa....

And I thought this coffee table with the white top looked better....

 Two more shots from the listing
Really love the Serena and Lily chandy hanging in the foyer!

As much as I would like to finish up the whole thing I am off to a photoshoot early this AM so I have to get Cami walked and slap on some facepaint:)

For the final installment I will have the master bedroom, walk in closet and bathroom and then we will be done.

I'm hanging in there friends......

Boulder project is perfection, as always. I think of you often. Just know there are so many folks that truly care for you and are pulling for you. We got you, friend. You have a right to happiness. Own that. Be extra kind to yourself - even selfish, if necessary - during this difficult time. This too shall pass.

I am losing it! You don't live in Boulder! Early morning viewing and no coffee!

Beautiful living room! Love how you brought in the green from the kitchen and also your choice not to add art on the wallpaper but instead the baskets on the white wall. Perfection, especially with the rattan chairs. Love all the color and texture. I learn so much from coming here.
Thinking of you often and sending power, resilience, self-care, strength and love!! But, not forgiveness!! HAHA!! (forgiveness is not one of my virtues ) xo

Sherry, I'm so glad to see you haven't lost your amazing sense of humor and the essence of yourself on these pages. Not one bit! To me who knows you only through your words and pictures, that's a great indication that you're gonna be OK. Yes, there will be mountaintops and valleys, but give yourself some leeway when you're in those valleys and find a formula that helps you cope with those times - like dinner with a friend, a long walk with Cami, or blogging and IGing your heart out! God Bless!

Perfection Sherry...as always. I enjoy seeing these amazing images each week so keep on dragging it out!
PS- The other day you mentioned all the emotions you are feeling, one was embarrassment. I had those feeling when this happened to me and now I think- Girl, why were you feeling embarrassment? This was all his doing, not mine, I had nothing to do with his choices, I am still a wonderful person, so hold your head high-
When I really believed that is when I felt so much better.

You are a genius what can I say. Love that you left the wallpaper wall bare. Looks great as is. Love all the texture and that rug is fab! You are a rockstar!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I never get tired of anything you post and love seeing every room and every detail of the wonderful homes you work on. This remodel is a winner and I’m sure it will sell quickly. We’d love to move but don’t know where to...Boulder is looking mighty good especially if we could get one of the homes you’ve worked on. Keep on keeping on, you can do this Sherry!

The one weekend that I was fortunate enough to meet you, I knew instantly that I liked you and that your husband was a lucky guy to have met and fallen in love with you. That weekend you gave me the link to a "little bloggy thing I write." I was immediately blown away when I returned home and found it. It isn't at all a "little thing". It--and you--are BIG things! I read every one of your posts, whether it is on style, fashion, or life's little happenings. You are my morning cup-of-coffee friend and I am glad you find comfort in continuing to share. I am speechless about the way in which your life "imploded" upon your return from Boulder, and I am so sorry that you are going through this right now. Reflection is all part of the healing process. I hope that it, and time, will give you answers and peace. Thinking of you and praying for you from across the country. Hang in there, my friend!
