Tearing Up

Tearing Up
Kelly’s got a good thing going on over at her blog Tearing Up Houses. She’s in a constant state of buying, selling and renovating. She recently shared her revamped living room, and isn’t it great? Love the colors she used, muted without being boring, and a huge leap away from the frightening terra cotta color the walls sported before. 
 Speaking of frightening, her old mosaic fireplace looked like an abstract artist’s representation of “nightmare.” Not something I want to cozy up to on a cold night, no sir. Love the new rustic mantle too. Thanks Kelley! Lots more pics to see HERE.

    Love it! The After is so much more timeless and classic. And not scary. That’s always a plus. 🙂

    I love Kelly’s blog, too – she cracks me up.
