Here is project #2 completed. Upstairs, the floor was just chaos! There was a fake woodfloor in the guest room and in the bathroom (but not the same, of course!), navy blue carpet in the main bedroom, a blueish thing in the toilets and an Arlequin-style yellow and orange carpet in the corridor. You don't believe me, do you? The proof is in the pictures!

Blue carpet in the main room...

Like, the floor is the only problem!!!

According to the previous owner, it was cheerful!!!

 

Of course, I dreamed, and still dream, of hardwood floor... But it's way beyond what I can pay right now. Still, I just couldn't adjust to all the colors and I decided to go for a cheap makeover for now.

 

Here is the corridor now:

It's a natural product (just learned from the blog A Perfect Gray that  it's called  seagrass!), meaning color will slightly change with time, which is an idea I like. Also, I chose not to glue it to  the floor, so it will be easier to remove when I have money for my dream hardwood floor! The glue is also highly chemical and then, what's the benefit of choosing a natural floor?

The atmsophere upstairs is just so much more peaceful already, even if the walls remain very, very, very colorful!

I will deal with those walls later, promise!
