November before and after!

Hello all! Have I got some pretty spaces for you today! It’s time to link up your before and afters, but first I have to share these beautiful spaces.

Oh by the way, the overwhelming majority of you wanted to keep this party as a monthly thing, so I will keep it as such, at least for now. I just know there’s SO many of these going any more and I didn’t know if they were still something you wanted to see every month here at TDC. You said yes so it will stay. :)

As I was looking through the links this month I was taken with how much COLOR is being used again and it makes me so happy. I love a beautiful neutral space, believe me, but I’m a color girl at heart for sure. Love these rooms!

First up, Beth used touches of coral in her guest room and it turned out so pretty and fresh:

Gray and coral room

I loved it paired with the light gray walls. I also love that she carved an office space out of this room too – and you’ll have to check out the bed! It makes me want to go stay for a week or so. :)

Amy used a pretty green color on the walls and then decorated with neutrals in her office:

Green walls black accessories

LOVE the kitchen table as a desk!

OK, Vel’s kitchen isn’t super colorful, but I had to include it because I’m drooling over it:

Black island white cabinets You MUST to go see the before to truly appreciate it! Love it all.

We’ve talked about the power of a neutral wall before – I loved the color Sarah was able to add to this room with just pillows: Navy headboardA neutral wall sure does make it so easy to change up a room down the line. I’m trying to do this more and more in our house.

I thought Karianne’s kitchen redo was SO fun!:

Fun gray and red kitchen

AND it was done on a budget. Such a fun space!

Linda’s living room is painted in a deep navy blue and white, but still looks bright and pretty with tons of color:

Navy and white room

I think blue is the new neutral – there’s very few colors that don’t look good with it, don’t you think?

And finally, at first glance Chelsea’s cute pantry may look like just another organizing project:

But you HAVE to go see the beautiful door they made for the pantry too. It is awesome!

Now it’s time for you to link up again! If you’d like to be considered for the recap next month I would love a link back or you can use my cute button:
