A Leon's Makeover Story - Part Two

Do you remember what your childhood home looked like? Or are your parents still living in it? For me, it's the latter. I've helped style many spaces over the past year but this one had me a little emotional. Which, by the way is not surprising because I'm a bit of a sap. I grew up in this house so the opportunity to give this space a huge makeover was a task I wasn't about to take lightly. I wanted it to be functional, beautiful and timeless so my parents could enjoy it for many, many years.

If you missed out on part one of this series, I urge you to take a gander at the BEFORE photos. Here's a little peek at the concept board I put together:

Sometimes it’s the little things that help shape you as a person but you don’t realize it when it’s happening. When I was a child, my Dad would come home with metal wire puzzles he made at work (he was a welder). He was really crafty and resourceful, always making improvements to our home. From re-tiling the backsplash to installing hardwood floors - I was always watching from the sidelines to see what he would do next. My Mom worked as a government secretary for 40 years but let me tell you, she could wrap a present like nobody’s business – and this was waaaay before Martha Stewart days and long before Pinterest was even a thought. Twine, eucalyptus, ornaments you name it…wrapping Christmas presents was an event at our house and I loved every minute of it. 


Since this past August was my parents 40th wedding anniversary, I really wanted to do something special for them.  I wanted to give them a new living room! Head over to the Leon's blog, Hello Yellow to read the full post and see all the before photos HERE !
