We have been in our home one year this week, and I realized only one project I have had on the to-do list since our first walk-through of the home has been done. I am in operation get stuff done over here in the Morrison home, and it’s so fun! I also realized after trying a hand at our guest bath, I hate painting. And even though it’s about 70% done… I am 100% calling in a professional to finish it for me and the other two projects I want done right now. Painting + baby who moves constantly + not knowing REALLY what I am doing + postpartum aches and pains in the joints = HIRE.IT.OUT.
Props to you DIY’ers… but that is just not me. And I am okay with it. At first I was like, “I am so lame. Come on, Hannah. GET IT TOGETHER.” But then… I remembered I have a child I have successfully kept a live for 7 months, and do a lot of things right… so if painting isn’t one of them, well so be it. I am not going to beat myself up over hating painting. I will gladly pay someone to come do it for me.
My first projects to complete are guest bath, master bedroom, and master bathroom.
I shared on my stories, but my style -if I had to pinpoint it- is what I would call Moroccan Farmhouse. I love the Joanna Gaines all white farmhouse look. Give me all the white shiplap! But, I also am all about bold pops of color. Finding a middle ground between the two has been a hard battle. If it were up to Paul, everything would be white. Everything. I love me some bright, white, and airy… but I want and need color mixed in there, too.
For my own home, this has meant adding color in accessories and odds & ends, like vases and trays. So as I mentioned, I started with our small guest bath. The wall colors are Sherwin Williams Marshmallow. Well, at least the portion I finished before throwing in the towel… and before Knox woke up. And I chose Behr Nobility Blue for the vanity! It’s a rich, royal blue to bring some color (we could agree on!) to the space. See below for an idea of what the space will look like. 😉
For our master bed and bath, we will be doing SW Alabaster with Extra White trim/doors. If you have been around a while, you probably have heard me talk about the trim in our house. It’s currently an awful greyish white, so when we painted the kitchen Alabaster with Extra White trim… the laundry door turned GREY in contrast. The whole home is that. So, eventually, we will paint all the trim & doors in the house and the walls a true white instead of a greyish white trim with tan walls. (OY.) You can follow my Pinterest board, here, for more inspiration. Below I rounded-up of all things Moroccan + Farmhouse that will hopefully end up in my home, or already is. 😉
Tip: I say stick to these as your “neutral” for a Moroccan Farmhouse- white, gold, black, and a light ashy brown.
Then, you can play with any colors you want! I go for light and airy like blush pink and pretty blue hues. But, clearly from my vanity choice, I like more bold colors, too.
