Our final stop is the master bedroom which is one half-flight of stairs up from the spare bedroom level. (Seriously..my legs are totally going to be toned by next Christmas!) Here’s a view from the spare bedroom level and you can see down to the front room and the stairs leading up to the master..
And here’s the master. No, those curtains are not ours. And yes, this wall color is actually the most “neutral” color in the whole place (in addition to the light lavendar in the office). We really like having a lot of closet space and more room than our previous house had.
And it definitely doesn’t hurt to have a full bathroom right off of your bedroom either. Jackpot!Well…that concludes our tour. I hope your eyes were not blinded by the multitudes of color. We can’t wait to start working on projects and really making this our own!

As we continue our tour of
Joseph: The Technicolor Coat our colorful home, we’re heading upstairs to the bedroom level. Mentally take yourself back to the front room and this time, we’re going to go up a half-flight of stairs to the bedroom level. Here, we have 3 spare bedrooms and a full bathroom.
Immediately to your left after walking up the stairs is the guest bathroom. This is the biggest of the bathrooms and I’m excited to figure out how to decorate this room. I think it will be a fun project!
Straight across the hall is the the spare room we lovingly refer to as the “blue room.” This will be a second spare room if we have a house full of guests and most likely it will become a nursery down the road (no, that is not an announcement of any kind)!
Across the hall again is our main spare room that we like to call the “pink room.” This time, the former home owners truly outdid themselves. Not only did they paint the walls two different colors of pink, but they also painted the trim a magenta color. Wow. I did just score that yellow comforter for $26 on clearance from Target that was originally $86. Jackpot!
The next room, while a bit cluttered right now, is one of my favorite rooms in the entire house….my office/craft room!!! I am so excited to have a place to work from home and work on freelance projects. I also set up my childhood art desk and am hoping to start a few craft/art projects! Check out the awesome new wall art from IKEA! And yes, the lavendar is actually decent. Our last stop is one more half-flight up…the Master Bedroom! Click here for the next post.
If you missed the post on our family room, you can read it here.
From the family room, you can go straight into the garage. This is nice when Brian wants to escape from a fabulous Gilmore Girls marathon on Netflix or wants to quickly grab the hammer to smash the TV when the Bachelor is on. The table saw and drilling and hammering isn’t as loud or distracting as I thought it would be…although it’s not exactly silent either. It’s nice to be able to quickly check in on him to make sure he doesn’t have any finger nubs stuck in the saw blades. (The Lomas gene is NOT very safe when it comes to power tools!)
Brian is in the process of getting shelves up on one side so that we can clear up the
junk clutter and have more than a tiny path to walk through each morning as we go out to our cars.
From the family room, you can also go down to the Man Cave, which also includes a full bathroom as well as the laundry room. (I am trying to convince Brian that since the laundry room is down in the Man Cave, that means that he has to do the laundry, but he hasn’t bought it yet.) Currently the Man Cave is serving as our storage unit for boxes we haven’t gotten unpacked yet. Pay no attention to the massive clutter…
The laundry room is the only place in the entire place that isn’t finished. Some day we may finish it, for now it is completely functional. Side note: the laundry room is 5 half-flights away from the Master Bedroom. Hello cardio & strength exercise!
Don’t you love the dog butt hangers that I found at IKEA?!? I haven’t gotten them hung up yet, but I’m pretty excited about them for Brian’s Man Cave bathroom! :)
