Observing Model home Decor Part 6 and LInky Party #215

Hi Everyone! This is the last part of the inside tour of these model homes. Thank you for all of your kind comments and feedback, I hope the tours have inspired you. Next week will be one more tour of all three patio areas.  

Last week I featured the downstairs are of residence one. This week I'll show you the upstairs.
Starting in the stairway, I like this artwork. These are prints, but would be so easy to make yourself by picking your own foliage from your yard and painting and pressing them like a large stamp onto colored paper. The accent color of this home is red, but there is also a secondary accent color of light blue which you can see in one of these pictures. in some of the rooms they substitute grey for blue.
I love the giant clock. You can find these even at Big Lot's now and they aren't as expensive as they used to be.
If you're handy with scissors, You can make and frame a giant doily. This one is so pretty.

My husband and I both really like this anchor. This would be super easy to make with a jigsaw.

I thought this was a clever way to use a vise, in this little nook of the upstairs hallway

In the first bedroom, You barely see the light blue in the pattern of the bedding and the only red in the room are on the pillows, yet the pop of red really stands out. Sometimes less is more.

I like how they used the sea shells with faux succulents for space saving accent plants. 
This is a really great Idea for a bedroom wall. Or any wall. So much more affordable than those extra super large mirrors are and easier to hang.

next to the bedroom is a bathroom with a doublet sink with really pretty back splash tile, kind of basket woven looking.  And how cute is that little red tray with the rope handles?

I love the driftwood looking picture frames on the wall. I might have to make those! I really like the the wall color too.

Down the hall is the second bedroom.

In this room, they swapped out the blue for grey. I like all the the industrial touched in this room.

And here is the master bedroom. They added the light blue to the pillows and drapes. The red is on the pillows only and still makes a statement.

I like the touch of industrial metal around the padded headboard.

I've seen peal and stick cork board squares, which could easily be used to update a lamp to look like one of these.

I made an octopus knock off using a plastic thrift store octopus painted with a mixture of half paint half glue. I think I'll keep my eyes peeled for a cute little plastic crab to paint silver.

 I really like the pattern and color of the drapes!

What dreamy bathroom. This is my favorite bathroom of the three models.
