Things have been pretty crazy around here lately — hence the no blog post in over two weeks… But amidst all the prepping for winter and soaking in the last bit of summer we’ve made a little headway in the decorating department.
One of the biggest selling features of our house for us back when we bought it almost two years ago was the stair case and hall that have this kind of grand feel to them. One of the not so awesome parts of it all was the red carpet and wallpaper that came with it. I’ve had some people come into our house and love it, maybe you’re one of those people? But we are definitely not! We envision wainscoting (maybe white?) and a lot more architectural detail to the walls for the future — and not a lick of wall paper ;)
The list of projects we have going on around here is absolutely endless, overwhelming and mostly very un-sexy. You know like: installing insulation, adding central air, replacing rotting subfloor, do something about our leaky sieve of a basement… the list goes on.
BUT, I was growing tired of seeing this upstairs landing space sit untouched. Busy, yet boring. It’s going to be a long time before this space nears the top of our to do list and that empty space at the end of the hall was taunting me. So, in the meantime, I did something about it. And I’m in love with the results.

It’s the perfect little spot to catch up on email, blogging, editing photos, etc. while my boys play in their room — I love this because previously it was nothing but dead space.
I’m a big fan of modern meets traditional, so I opted for a minimal desk with clean lines. I blended it into it surroundings by layering it with worn, torn and antique trinkets, and now? I’m kind of rethinking the whole tearing down the wall paper and replacing the carpet thing.
Just kidding! ;)
Any tips for when we finally do get around to ripping down that wall paper?
