Our corridor to the set
Nancy’s kids’ room looking to the right from the door. I stretched drop cloth to make custom canvas for my sea kelp triptych.
I knew I needed to maximize my time but I wanted to do a striped wall so I selected some tongue and groove paneling and painting it in three shades of gray. It was fun rearranging the pattern to my final look.
Easy stripes by Nancy
My kids’ room in Jay’s house for the finale.
Eclectic selection of items I found that screamed beach house to me.
Darren had the great idea to pop into the attic space so I designed this area as a sweet moment in the upstairs.
Love this view from the nook
To inspire the kids to paint what they see I did this tiny acrylic on paper of one of our beautiful crashing waves.
