Before and After- Dining Room

I was browsing through old photos...and I came across pictures of our home from the first day that we stepped in. When we got the keys, it was a euphoric moment. I'm sure many of you can relate to that. 

We walked in and the walls were all white and bare. There was ample light streaming in, as there were no window treatments. I could hear my own voice echo in every direction when I spoke. I had several visions of how I'd want each room to look.
From that day on, a journey began....., of turning a house into a Home....My Home. We've come a long way....but there is still lots to do...... It'll take us a few years:)

When I see the pictures from that day and the rooms the way they look now...its an amazing transformation, and the feeling is one of satisfaction.
I always love looking at before and after picture and thought you might enjoy it too. I'd be sharing before and after pictures of a few rooms that are, kind of, complete. 
First in the series is my Dining room

  23. Beautiful Neha! I love the wall color! It brings so much life to the room! I wish to share how I went about choosing colors for my home. It was quite a task but at the end I was very happy with the results. I used the Nippon iColor which you can launch on your computer and try out different colors online. You can mix and match with colors of your settee, curtains, bedcovers or cushion covers. Believe me it was really worthwhile...the wall colors in my home turned out to be lovely!. Will post some pictures on my blog for all to see. My blog address is http://food-allthingswonderful.blogspot.sg/
