Don’t mind our dusty floor–lots of ceiling debris that still needs to get swept up. As a refresher, here’s what the room looked like less than two months ago:
The lighting was as harsh as the black splattered paint on the walls. We’ll be sharing all of the details of our new lighting next week on True Value’s facebook page in our ongoing mini series, but we did want to let you know that we had some help with this project. A LOT of help.
As DIYers, we are always up for a new challenge, but when it comes to electrical work (I would say plumbing, too) it’s just not worth the risk for us. We couldn’t be happier with the work that Black Diamond Electric did. They fished wire through our ceiling without making any unnecessary holes which we were told would have to happen. They also noticed there was something in our breaker box that was loose, so they fixed that, too. And replaced all the plug and light sockets in the room because they still had black paint splattered on them. !!! So thorough! We went with their recommendation and had the lights put on a dimmer which is nice (and intimate as Chris would say).
When we do work with a product or person that is exceptional, we like to pass their information along, so if anyone in Utah is looking for an electrician–we highly recommend Black Diamond Electric.
Stay tuned for more details on the whole lighting process next week. Happy Weekend, friends!
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
