My House in Simply Buckhead (so much work to do!)

The new magazine "Simply Buckhead"decided to feature my personal house in a upcoming issue! Thank you to Crisit at Charm Home and Claire at High Gloss blue for recommending me! (Please venture over to Decor Demon to see Claire's beautiful apartment featured.)Screen shot 2011-01-12 at 12.42.44 PM I am at once thrilled and terrified. I moved into my house in 2007 and have done little to change it. The walls are still white, and the countertops are still bright green. I talk a big game about all the things I want to do to it, but when it comes right down to it I haven't had a reason to actually go through with it. Sure I have done a few things here and there...

I also hung some art and rearranged the furniture a little. I was so excited about the progress that I did a guest post on Charm Home about my house.Screen shot 2011-01-12 at 12.58.52 PM

We painted some this weekend. I would say we are about 45% finished... I was planning on finishing the house this week, but since Atlanta has been hit with a HUGE snowstorm I haven't been able to do it. In fact, I have been staying at my mom's house in case the power went out at mine... so I haven't even been to my house this week ... and I am totally freaking out!

To calm my nerves I thought I would go through these photos and make a list of what I need to do. If you guys have any suggestions please make them! I need all the help I can get! My wonderful friend Laure Green Thome helped me pick paint colors (to come), and by friend Anne Williams picked all my furniture.

So, for the photo above, we are leaving the room white but are getting a rug. We are also painting the fireplace yellow (!!!) and doing a little work on the back window.

Here we are adding more curtains to the window and painting the front door.

This is the Family room. It will be painted a light green and Laura and I are redoing the shelving.

I don't have a picture of the kitchen or the guest room, but I am getting both of those painted as well. The guest bedroom is finished, but the kitchen is only half finished.

Can you see why I am freaking out a little? There is so much to do!

Hopefully some of this ice will melt and I can get to work.

Keep your fingers crossed. And please make suggestions! I will post more pictures of the progress :)

Enjoy your snow day!!
