As I shared in my brutally honest post earlier this week, one of the layers of chaos in our life has been remodeling our third floor. From the beginning, we loved the potential it had because of the full staircase already in place, and the roofline of our 1940 colonial makes for a dramatically magical space. Even better, there was a decent amount of old cedar planking already up there, so we capitalized on that… I can’t wait to show you.
But we still have a long way to go.
In the meantime, here are some of the gorgeous rooms where I’ve been finding inspiration. You can find all of these and more on my inspire: attic rooms and inspire: whitewash Pinterest boards. (Side note: I searched for an original source for several of these to no avail… if you know where they came from, please share!)
