Trying to turn ex-bachelor pad into Our Home! Please help!!
I am a newlywed who moved into my husband's house and I am trying to figure out room by room, how to make this ex-bachelor pad our home. It is stuck in the 1980's and consists of Brick tile floor (which I kinda like), rough wood walls, (which I want gone!), a Massively long brick hearth (I think is too dark) along with wooden railing that is rough as well. It is dark and uninviting. It is such a challenge and I don't even know where to begin! We live on a farm and I am pretty traditional in my taste. I plan on using a contractor that has done work for us before, but I don't have a design plan yet! PLEASE HELP!
