Smörgåsbord's Brand New Room

Here's a post from OnSugar blog Smörgåsbord:

So here's my new room. Yes, I am claiming it for myself. I'm selfish. The kids want to use it as a playroom but they are getting one of those as the renovation progresses. So it's all mine, I tell you!

This room used to be the darkest room in the house. In order to maximize the limited light, we painted the room white from top to bottom. Then we sprinted down to Ikea and snapped up the bookcases, desk and drawers. To spice things up a bit we also picked up this zesty orange sofa and colorful rug.

I'm so loving this room. It's bright and cheerful and everything is in order. Just as I like it.

I thought I had commented on this when I first read it, but I guess not...? It's beautiful. I bet it's a happy mom retreat. How are you enjoying it?

I'd want that room all to myself too. I can't believe what a difference painting the whole room white could make. That couch rocks and I LOVE all the storage.

Aw thanks so much. You always make sense, Finn. SJP, maybe I should make the kids wear those crime scene booties. ;) Actually, since we don't wear shoes indoors, dirt hasn't been an issue. Lisa, that is a cabinet with sliding doors. We're going to install some lighting underneath at some point.

I love it! It went from 1970's drab to modern day fab!! What is that on the wall above the desk? is it a mirror?

OMG I LOVE IT!!! I want to live there :) Don't let the kids in unless they promised to not touch anything, to wear only socks and to have washed their hands before entering LOL Seriously, great job, it is such a happy room.

I love it! :love: It is such a bright and happy space. You have a gift. You can tell everything was meticulously thought of, without looking like it was. I don't know if I make any sense at all. And you totally deserve a room of your own. :)
