We had the wallpaper stripped and painted the walls "Breezy" by Sherwin Williams (SW7616).  A new vanity was custom made and a vessel sink make the space feel warm and cozy.  Here is the after:

Painted Paneling & Wainscoting: Adding Character

Do you have dark wood blah paneling in your home? Have you ever thought about painting it but are unsure of what it would look like? Need to add a little character to a boring space?  Painted paneling and wainscoting can change the entire look and feel of a room without spending a lot of money. It is inexpensive to add trim work details to your walls and ceilings.  MDF boards can be used in place of the more expensive wood and trim pieces, and it comes in a primed option saving you an extra step in the painting process.
Find some inspiration here:

Define Your Style

Looking for some design inspiration?  Need to update your decor but not sure where to start?  An "Ideabook" is a great way to collect styles, looks and pieces you love. Is your style:
  • Traditional
  • Contemporary
  • Modern
  • Mid-Century
  • Eclectic
  • Traditional Country
  • Rustic/Farmhouse
  • International
  • Beachy
  • Glamorous
An Ideabook can help define your style.  You may notice a pattern in the pictures you like; is it a color scheme, furniture style, trim molding?  These are usually fairly simple to duplicate in your space, without spending thousands of dollars. &, along with home magazines such as Better Homes and Gardens, Southern Living, and House Beautiful are great places to start your own Ideabook.  Houzz and Pinterest also have great apps for your iPhone and iPad.  Call or email Frugality Interiors today to help you make your Ideabook a reality!
