Dana & Brooks’ Painted Paradise — House Tour

When we bought that house 13 years ago my husband was just starting his decorative painting business. From IKEA to vintage and antique, all of them blend together make each room its most attractive. Contact the editors through our Professional Submission Form. I follow lots of shops that sell right off of Instagram. We have been much more intentional in this house to not overdo it with the painted and textured surfaces. (Image credits: Monique Larroux) Every single surface had a painted or plastered finish, the walls, the cabinets, the vanities, the doors, the ceilings, the floors, the furniture. Your home is comfortable and inviting. I am obsessed with having several different lighting sources in each room. She gave it to us because it needed to be re-finished (painted by Brooks)
