Kitchen Erika’s bright white kitchen is balanced by dark hardwood floors. Bicycle art split into four canvases from Pottery Barn creates a focal wall in the dining nook. A peek from the living room into the kitchen reveals a brick wall Erika’s handy husband exposed along with French doors painted a sunny shade of yellow.

Living Area Erika’s favorite space in the house? Her living room gallery wall anchored by her bright green piano. Pick up a jar of Annie Sloan chalk paint to get a similar shade of kelly green!
