Oar’nt you glad?

Oar’nt you glad?
Sometimes it feels like cheating when the before is nothing but an empty room, stripped down, all ready to be painted and decorated.  No crusty carpet to pull up.  No weird wood paneling to pry off the walls. No strange stains and smells making you wonder if perhaps your home was previously used as a meth-lab.
But Helen’s new family room is so lovely with the built in bookcases and nautical-but-not-SO-nautical-that-it’s-hitting-you-over-the-head-with-an-oar theme, that I will totally give her a pass.  Lovely job Helen!  See more on her blog A Brit of Happiness.

    I love nautical themes but usually they are SO cheesy!! Love the subtlety in this room (oh, and those built in bookshelves!!!) 🙂
