As I mentioned in my last post we went with a light ivory color – Sherwin Williams Ivory Lace (SW 7013) – throughout our entire home. I really wanted to start out with everything feeling fresh and light and crisp and let the features of the house shine. Here’s a look at how our freshly painted walls looked throughout our upstairs level.
This first picture was taken from one of the landings heading upstairs. It shows a full look at our two story entryway. You can see our temporary door and sidelights at the bottom and the three square windows at the top (with the floor of the upstairs cutting through the center).
Going up a few more stairs, you can see the upstairs landing. The overlook to the entryway is ahead and the entrance to Kate’s bedroom and bathroom are in the back right corner of the pic.
(We had planned on keeping this space empty and open, but Kate has completely taken it over and it’s now her “Lego City.” I wouldn’t be surprised if Lego City’s urban sprawl eventually takes over my office.)
The photo below is looking toward Kate’s bedroom. There is a little alcove area you walk into first, and then her bathroom is to the left and her bedroom is straight ahead.
Looking into Kate’s bathroom from the alcove. Her bathroom is L-shaped and this is where her sink and cabinetry will be.
Around the corner is her bathtub (already install and covered in plastic for protection) and toilet.
The cutout on the left (below) is Kate’s closet, and at the far right in this picture are her bedroom and bathroom doorways.

The picture below was taken standing in my office looking back toward the doorway. You can see the cutout for the closet, and part of the cutout for the upstairs balcony at the far right:

I took this picture from my office doorway, angled down, so you can see how open our staircase is between the upstairs and main level. from this view I can see into part of the kitchen.
And another look at our three story square-shaped staircase. (Because I’m obsessed with it!)
