Cottage Update: 3rd Floor Lounge ready for its makeover

When it comes to the Cottage, I’m all over the place.  Due to the One Room Challenge, I’m committed to finishing my bedroom, but after that I don’t really know what room I’ll do next.  I don’t have the budget to do my living room properly right now, so instead I think I’ll focus on my 3rd floor lounge.  I’m re-using pieces up there and its going to have a really loose bohemian feel.

My dad hung my string ball chandelier this week and I was just so excited I had to share a little snapshot.

Here’s how it used to look in the old loft.  (Note about loft pictures- I’m still getting that page set up but you can see all loft related posts through this link or the tag on the left “Naomi’s Place.”)

Also, if you missed it on instagram, here is the lounge all painted.  Well actually the floor needs another coat, but you get the idea.  Remember way back in October I was debating between refinishing the wood or painting it white?  Well I went against what most of you voted for and did what I wanted.  And I love it.  With all the angles in one room I really just like the walls, ceilings and floors being the same.  This is going to be where all the cool kids hang out.

PS- I must say that instagram is really my favorite form of social media.  I’m so often on the run and don’t have time to compose long blog posts, but its really easy to share updates and pretties this way.  If you don’t follow me, you really should.  Wink Wink.  (DesignManifest)

Let’s not forget where we started.  Don’t miss that carpet one bit.

That’s all for me guys.  Happy Thurzday.

    I already love it. Is that weird to say about an all white, empty room? Well, I don’t care if it’s weird. I love it.

    Ahhh the white floor looks fantastic! Trusting your instinct is always the way to go dear. I can’t wait to see this room come together.

  4. Wait, didn’t we vote for you to do what you wanted? ;) I know this space is going to be my ‘I wish I were a cool stalker and could befriend strangers in far away cities so I can invite myself over and hang out’ room.

    Yay! I voted white floors! Do what you love, it’s always the best choice.

    Gorgeous!! I love the white floors – so glad you went with that choice! Hope you have a great weekend.

  7. Oh great choice on painting the floors! Always go with your gut. I say! That room is going to be so calming, can’t wait to see how you pull it all together.
