    Love the warm beiges. Can you share the colors. I go to the store and instantly get defeated in the paint area!

    1. Hi Kathy! My walls are a custom tan paint color but I have the color code you can take to the paint store to get a sample. You can find it under the “Favorites and Finds” category in the menu, and then “Shop my Home”. https://southernhomeandhospitality.com/shop-our-home/ There’s a picture of the code in there towards the bottom of the post. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Wow! I just luv your taste in everything! It turned out beautifully, and I think it’s a true
    Cinderella story. Congrats!

    Love what you did with the entertainment center. Did you paint it or have it done. I would like to know what paint you used and any prep work needed.
    Thank you

    1. Thanks Maureen! We used as much of the original woodwork as we could, but had a carpenter rebuild the top of the TV section and totally rebuild the mantel. So before we painted I think we had four different kinds and colors of wood on that wall! We had it professionally painted with a paint sprayer and I cannot remember if they did any prep beyond some sanding of the original stained wood. All of our woodwork in the house is painted with Swiss Coffee in a satin finish. It’s a Benjamin Moore color but they had it mixed at Sherwin Williams. I hope that helps!

    Just saw this on Pinterest and love the remodel and how you saved some of the original design ideas and updated them. I love all the colors and how they mix the different styles. Love your coffee table. I have been looking for a coffee table to replace mine that is probably 35 years old. Love it but changed my sofa to a sectional and it doesn’t really fit in the room any more but hate to get rid of a perfectly. Good table. Any ideas as to wear to look for a coffe table similar to yours?

    1. Thank you Pam! I bought that coffee table from a local furniture store when we moved to the town we’re in now. Which would make it over twenty years old and I didn’t even realize it! I think it’s worked for me for so long without getting too outdated because of it’s glass top and the iron color of the metal.

  5. The transformation of your kitchen & family room are amazing! You really have a talent for design!

    1. Thank you so much for that kind compliment Becky! I have no formal training, just years of decorating, experimenting, researching, and learning to trust what looks good to me.😊

  6. Hello- love your blog. Can you tell me where you purchased that leather sofa from? I have a similar one that needs to be replaced and absolutely love the color and details of yours.
    Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Sheila! I’m so glad you like the blog!! My sofa is made by Bernhardt and it’s from the “Foster” line, which I think is a classic style they always offer. The color is why I like it…Bernhardt calls it some kind of gray ( I can’t remember the exact color name) but it looks grayish brown in our room. It came in this color at a local furniture store but I’m sure it could always be ordered in that color wherever you live.
