Alright friends, I am seriously gearing up for the tearing up of carpet here at Casa Del Playa! My mom is coming to visit here in a few weeks, so I've decided I have to wait just a bit longer, so that I don't put her through the disaster zone that will become our house for a few weeks! We have definitely decided that we are going to live on our sub floors, but to catch some of you up, we are going to get crafty with them!
We've decided that we are going to paint the floors white! I can see some of you wincing out there! I am well aware of the constant cleaning I will have to perform to keep the floors looking nice. I figure Ill eventually invest in a rumba. That should take care of things nicely, and probably scare the hell out of my cat on a daily basis! However, there is a good reason that we've decided on white. As much as I love this little beach condo.......... It only has 2 windows. One large sliding glass door in the living room and one small window in the bedroom. Oye! Luckily I do face a good direction and get a considerable amount of natural light during the day, despite only having 2 windows. So that is why my fine friends, the floor should be white! To create more light!
So now I need your help! Even though the floors are going to be white, I still intend to have some fun on the finish. I plan on using a water based high gloss sealant to make the floors uber shiny. Then add just a touch of whimsy with some stenciling. The question is... how much stenciling? So, take a look at some of the pictures below and tell me what you like the best. Keep in mind, our new curtains have a pretty busy damask like pattern on them. Also, I could only stencil the bedroom and leave the rest of the house just plain old white, then I could possibly go a little bit more crazy. Anyway, look for yourselves and leave a comment and tell me what you like!
Super cute and I feel like it adds a lot of texture. It could be totally overwhelming though.
I do love Chevron prints. Maybe in the bedroom?
I really like the white on gray in the last one. It embellishes the space without necessarily being a focal point.
