Style, according to the Meriam Dictionary, is a particular way in which something is done, created, or performed: a particular form or design of something: a way of behaving or of doing things. So let's talk about your home. It's got a style, right? Some way of saying This house is mine. This is the 'Look Blog" number 2, number 1 can be found here.

Style, according to the Meriam Dictionary, is a particular way in which something is done, created, or performed: a particular form or design of something: a way of behaving or of doing things. So let's talk about your home. It's got a style, right? Some way of saying This house is mine. This month, I'll be doing 4 houses that are unique in style but cohesive in each home to a style. This is house number 2, and you can find house number one here.

House two's first story looks like this: 
With an exterior that looks something like this: 

So this house is unique in that two different spaces move up through both stories. Basically it just means we need to design these areas first so we can make sure there is congruity between the spaces.

It also has a dark hardwood floor through the kitchen, breakfast nook, dining room, and and foyer.  Hardwood floors by Cromwell Hill  I would love dark wood floors in our kitchen
Let's start in the Family Room.

First, let's look at what we have already from the space: the fireplace and built in shelving to start. I love that modern flat screens can be mounted above electric or gas fireplaces with little hassle, and think it looks fan-freaking-tastic.

However, i don't like how plain and boring this is. Let's mix it up a bit, shall we? For this house we're going for a Bright, Colorful, Homey feel.

ahhhhh, much better.

Now, that chandelier is still funky looking I think, and I'd probably replace it with this beauty if she was big enough, and hey this is my design so I'm saying we find it in a big enough size to match the Family Room.  black chandelier

Breakfast Nook

i love this idea of a booth style table here, and the lighter blue is a nice pull in from the family room and into the darker blue kitchen., the yellow a cute little accent, and painting it in stripes for the color of the family room and the blue kitchen would be perfect!

Probably more than I can handle on the backsplash to ceiling but I like the color

Onto the Dining Room 
colorful dining room
I think this is the perfect dining room set up for your bright home. It's a little bit eclectic with the colored chairs but still has a nice uniformed look. The floor is that nice dark hardwood, don't forget! 
Onto the Living Room
I love Living Rooms, it's a feature many modern homes have eliminated but it's a lovely formal place to sit and talk to guests. The Living Room and Dining Room of this house have a connecting column wall so keep in mind that these rooms can be seen from one another. ( I'd paint the columns coordinating colors to the chairs, but that's just me.)

I just love this, pulling in all the colors from the rest of the first floor and allowing you to display all the artwork! 

The Entryway 

I just loveeee this. Let's have this in the entryway. It's on Etsy! 

I just might have to break down and get this oneit would work perfectly on the wall right across from the entryway Hmmm

comfortable contemporary upholstery antiques and a mix of decorative objects Pale golden yellow walls pick up color from the custom area rug Hanging above it is a beautiful gold-framed mirror Walls striped with light and medium yellow add interest yet remain neutral A traditional chest is flanked by matching antique chairs
i also just love this light and dark yellow striping, and i think it'll work with the rest of the place- so let's do it! why not? 
Next is that downstairs powder room. it's only a half bathroom, but it may be a nice place to pull in the red in as accents( keep in mind you still have the dark hardwood in here, not that white tile) :

Next is this 5th bedroom/study room. 
I've decided that this is going to be a library, because my guy and I have more books than we really know what to do with. (Those shelves in the living room might take a quarter of our books.) My style of library I like the room in general and think it looks like a lovely place to get lost in a book

Since the room doesn't have a natural fireplace I'd probably build one. a DIY for it is here.

Full Downstairs Bathroom
BATHROOMS ARE THE BEST AND I LOVE THEM! Ok, good talk. For our bright house i decided this bathroom should have some boho feel:

For the second floor, you can back off on your color scheme a little bit, however since this particular house has a soaring Family Room and Foyer, keep in mind that you can still see up into the second floor areas. For this reason, your foyer and family room colors should reach to your second story ceiling and should extend to the walls of those spaces. So your foyer has yellow stripes, and I vote you carry that through the second story hallway. Don't forget about your hardwood floors :)

I just love laundry rooms. For some people, they're these dank little places with cement floor and little light in a basement somewhere. But with the right love and time, they can transform themselves into places you actually want your laundry to be in :) The full Ion Board for Laundry Room is here, but for our house, I decided it would make sense to keep this sort of bright and clean as well:

I love this color scheme for the master suite, but don't forget that the fireplace has built in bookcases though :) 

Nice blue master bathroom
