Reveals – Take Two

In preparation of listing our house to sell (for more details, click here) we decided to make some changes to the interior to focus more on the space and structure rather than the items, and paint colours, in it.

Perhaps one of the easiest, but most dramatic, changes was the paint colour in the entryway and hall. We change the wall colour from a Kelly green to a classic taupe. We were truly shocked with the change and how much brighter and larger the space seemed and how much more alive the floors and lights fixtures became. We left the mirror that was there, but painted black and switched out the marble top desk for a classic gate leg table.

Next up was the living room. The biggest change in this room was the major edit of everything in it. Most of the accessories and wall hangings were removed and the 7ft French Provincial couch was switched out for a more contemporary and versatile sofa (from Hambly’s). Otherwise, I think the changes in the room speak for themselves. What do you think?

The man-den. Oh, the man-den. It’s gone. No more bear skin rug. No more antlers. No more deep purple. Like the living room, this room was also heavily edited so as to showcase it’s size, versatility and brightness. The walls were painted a lovely light green that goes well with the neutral furniture.

The upstairs bathroom received a fresh coat of paint. The steel grey is more calming, more versatile than the previous colour. It works well with the counter-top, fixtures and accessories. Grey is such a lovely, inviting and versatile colour. One of our favourites.

So, comments appreciated. What do you think of the changes to 292?

  1. It’s really interesting how much difference the change of colour makes. I’m glad you have photos of the original because you can see the difference very clearly. Some changes I prefer. Others not so much, I liked the original. Thanks for keeping me along on the ride!

  2. I love all the changes but I did LOVE the living room wall with all the different pics on it!! Hopefully you can do a replica of that room at some point. All the best guys. Xo
