Interior Before & After Paint Update and Tulip Heaven

May 6, 2017

Over the years, I have worked with a southern client on updating his home with new paint colors. It still amazes me how a coat of paint can totally transform a room! Here are a few sneak peek before and after photos of his newly painted home. There are a lot of photos in this post so grab a cup of coffee and relax and enjoy:

A welcoming new color of Stonington Gray HC-170 renews this entry hallway and stairs:

I think this is my favorite transformation:


And After:

It is the upstairs bath repainted in Ben Moore Baltic Sea CSP-680. Love this color here!

I will share more photos of the upstairs master bedroom and guest room next time. Thank you so much Jeff for letting me share!!

Do you love tulips like I love tulips? One of my very favorites flowers. So many colors, long lasting and beautiful in a group or all alone. I was very fortunate to be able to visit a tulip farm here in RI, Wicked Tulips Flower Farm. They planted over 800,000! tulip bulbs this year!!


They are open to the public in the Spring. There is a charge of  $5.00 to get in and the farm provides baskets or buckets to hold all of your stems. I had too many flowers and just carried in my arms! So much fun!You pick the tulip by pulling up on the stem so you will get a long stem.  They provide large work tables after you are finished picking and brown wrapping paper so you can wrap up and take your treasures home. Each tulip is only $1.00!



Just amazing, isn’t it??

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. What a stark difference in the before and after photos. His abode seems more humble and in tune with other objects in the space. Great job Kelly! And the tulips are breathless. You inspire me Kelly.

  2. What a difference fresh new color makes. Great choices Kelly. And the tulips – love, love. If you ever come to Texas you should check out Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg. Like your tulip farm but this is nothing but wildseeds.
