Decor For A Large House

Of course, there are about 70 gazillion ideas floating around in my head about decor for this house. Oh my goodness, you guys should see it. I went to look at it last night - they are painting every single door, every cabinet, every closet, every shelf, every door frame. They painted the crown molding and the new base boards and will start with the walls and ceilings this week. SO exciting!

This house is going to be absolutely gorgeous when we move in. The painting and updating of the things I mentioned are just going to be amazing.

This house is large. Very large. The ceilings are tall, the walls are big, the rooms are huge. I am concerned with finding decor that goes with the flow of the house. It's also a ranch style house, and everything has unique arrangements (as far as the walls and flow of the rooms, etc). The patio is so pretty in front, and I just know that I am going to have to decorate for each and every holiday. I need a very large supply of wreaths.

As many pictures as I look at on Pinterest, I just know that decor is something you have to feel. I know I am going to need to move in and see the walls and feel what it's like to look at them from sitting in my couch while watching TV. There are so many times in my current home that I would say, "This would be so pretty here...." but this house is a different house and it's going to need to be treated differently. It also has some extra rooms and spaces I have just never had before, so it will be interesting to see how they turn out...

We have a playroom that is going to be wonderful. I have a feeling we will have lots of guests over and having a playroom just for the kids is going to be awesome.

I would love to do something like this on the wall, but I am hesitant about painting the wall with chalkboard paint, especially since it's getting a great coat of paint now..

Oh Jenna, I can't wait to see pics of the new house! I didn't know y'all got a new house. Congrats!!!! I am soooo jealous that you have painters. I am the painter at our new house, and it is getting old quick!!! So happy for y'all!

We really lucked out with that - the woman who we are buying from had already contracted the painters before we met her, so it just worked out. This house is gorgeous, but there was padded, silk wallpaper in one of the bedrooms and bathroom. Apparently that was real big in the 60's??? I would have had no clue how to take that off. Your house is looking great, I love the floors!
