|I can't take credit for the crown molding repair in left corner...the previous owner was sweet enough to come back after we moved in to repair!|
|Mirror is too small, but will have to do for now...once painted, it will be rehung vertically, not horizontally.|
|Couch of awesomeness from Christina|
|Thought about doing the back of the bookshelf orange-y/red like the medallion, but I painted a few shelves worth and thought that might have been too much.|
|It's so lovely in the natural sunlight...and this is only half as much light as it gets at the best times of day!|
|Unfinished ceiling medallion. I could be on a 11' ladder right now, taking care of that, but I decided to blog these pictures instead! You're welcome.|
|Fireplace interior is still blue. Not sure yet what it should be--the medallion color? Black? Cream like the crown molding? Mint green? Vote now in the comments section!|
|Yes. That orange-y woodwork was BEGGING to be surrounded by lavender. Don'tcha think?!|

Again, still need to mop the floors, change the curtains, move the dang orange chair, add awesome art to the walls, but you get the idea!
*New curtains: Probably sheer-ish and removeable..like those nifty 2-tension rod, adjustable faux roman blinds that I saw in a MSL mag not long ago. Sound goofy? Trust. Photos eventually.
UPDATE: The internet is great. Here is a photo. Just imagine this in a nicer fabric.
*Swap out the giant teal trunk for the low square wooden coffee table in the other room...probably will paint it high gloss mint green like my nails. Kinda like so:
Trendy, but easily changed. and DANG lavender, fire orange, and mint just look so happy together! Okay, so I thought that was a real thing and just searched Pinterest for an image to prove it, but no luck. So I guess it's not a thing. Which means maybe that buys me another year or so of non-overdoneness as I rock a mint coffee table in my lavender and fire-y orange room. I could take a picture of my chippy, paint covered manicure next to the lavender and orange room for you, but I'm too lazy. Again, trust.
