{Before & After: Traditional Meets Modern}

Ah, those talented lot over at Elle Decor never let us down on the old inspiration front, do they? They've pulled it out the bag again with one of their latest online articles, which details the remodel of Monticello, the country house of Thomas Jefferson. Reffering to the bright and bold new shade of yellow that graces the grand dining room walls as 'chrome-yellow', and coupled with some interesting facts, the full article makes for a worthy read. You can check out the full image gallery, too. I loved the vibrant grandeur look that follows the efforts of the remodel; the space seems bigger and, well, less drab and more fab.

  13. I agree - I love the change they made. That yellow is absolutely amazing. I especially loved the tea room in Monticello. One must always have a tea room in their home. =)

  14. So happy! Kirk and I painted the living room in our first apartment this color. It was always so cheerful, and looked great with the white trim, hardwood floors, and neutral furnishing we had then.
