Very impressive home interior Laura! For me it looks like a vacation home- very inviting and pleasing to the eyes. Definitely a good place to relax. Good job you guys.

My wife and I are planning to redecorate our master's bedroom and we have inquired with several remodelers, MN area, on the best designs and construction materials. I really like the overall look of your master's bedroom. May I ask what color of paint did you use? It's very classy! Honestly, we are all very excited. For inspiration, my wife even showed me pictures of remarkable room remodel. Minneapolis is our new home and we want to make the most out of it. Later on, I'll show her your post. I'm sure she'll love your home too!
