Blue paisley carpet anyone? Anyone? Well when we moved in there was plenty of high quality, blue, swirly, paisley carpet. All throughout the upstairs. My husband and dad did the heavy lifting of carrying huge, heavy rolls of carpet to the curb. Then I spent DAYS pulling a bamillion staples from the floor and stairs. My fingers were sore and raw, nail polish chipped. And we lived with the parquet wood flooring for a bit... until I found out I was pregnant. Then started the nesting. Below are some pictures of before, during and after. We spend the wide majority of our time as a family in these two rooms. The decor is ever changing but the light peeking through the window is always my favorite.
