Adventures in HOUSE-sitting

Every year my Hunny and I hold down the Trigo fort (my sis and bro-in-law’s home) while they take an anniversary vacation. It’s always a favor I’m happy to comply with because I finally get some peace and quiet and we get to ‘play house’! This time has been extra fun because they have re-decorated, giving the house a more HGTV feel. The warmer terracotta and reddish tones have been replaced by cooler light grays, lavenders, blues and white. From the paint on the walls, to the decorative vases and frames, mostly everything has changed! Check out the new look below, but please forgive me for my low-res iPhone images.

This is the living room area and fireplace. Here is the dining room, buffet, and awesome art stuck directly on the wall.

New colors in the kitchen.

Block shelves in the sitting room.

And, the black/white office.
We’ll be house-sitting till this Sunday, and Sister if you’re reading this: Thanks for the food! Don’t worry…We will re-stock your fridge by the time you’re back! :)
