Pictures of our Villa progress

It has been quite a while since I posted, but we have been working very hard to get our Villa into shape and make it ours.  We have moved things out and moved things in,  I still have to arrange the kitchen cupboards (drawers are done) before we leave this coming Friday.  And there is so much that I want to do, but will take my time and do it as I can.  Right now I am on the hunt for  a tablecloth that I love.  Those that know me well, know that tablecloths, napkins and napkin rings are favorite things of mine...I always have  them on my table.  Got that from my Mom as she always did too!!!

This is our courtyard after we have made several changes.  My favorite place.

 The guest room.  I haven't purchased the duvet, etc yet,  I plan to do the room in lime green and white,

The living room after adding the area rug.  I have a gorgeous coffee table that goes in the middle, but we have to get 2 muscle men to carry it in from the garage,

The kitchen and I love it.   This will be the last wall paper to be removed.  All but 2 rooms are papered and we will start removing it next fall.  yuck

The other end of the kitchen which opens into the courtyard,  Will paint the table and chairs that I got at a resale shop.  I want to either find or make a red checked table cloth for it.  The laundry area is on the left.

The other end of the living room.  I love how the kitchen opens to the dining area.

TV room.  Jon painted the walls a light beige. This furniture is just temporary as we want to order 2 lazy boys that are wall huggers.  I picked up the area rug for now, but once we get the lazy boys I will get a larger one to go with the chairs,  Lots of pictures, baskets, florals, etc. will be added.  I just feel very good with what we have gotten done in a little over a week.

Our new comforter, but nothing else yet.  Painting the walls a soft green and accenting in yellows and green.  It is a nice size room and will be able to do a lot to make it beautiful.

So that's it friends.  I hope you enjoy seeing what we are doing.  I am excited as next year I will be able to bring some of my crafting things next year.  I will use a large closet in the tv room for my supplies and hope to pick up a piece of granite for my work space,.

Boy are you having FUN!!!! I remember when we built our house and I did all the shopping and decorating - such FUN! 15 years ago and I am still happy with my choices!

Gorgeous and I bet you and John are just about worn out that's a lot of work in such a short time. When you get home you will have to take a week off just to rest before you get started on your flowers outside at home. It is beautiful and I think you two have made great choices. Hugs to you Judy

WOW you guys have been busy!! Looks fabulous and so homey!! (I see Whiskers feel right at home ... that's a very good thing!) I love the color combinations you've described ... going to be GORGEOUS as all your decorating is! You certainly have a 'nack' for it! I'm so happy for you and Jon. Life is short and the two of you are taking advantage of every moment and enjoying it! AWESOME!! Miss you ... hope to see you soon!

Looks wonderful Joan, must be so much fun, but also tiring I am sure!! Looks lovely
Wish you both many happy years with your new condo.

Looks great, and I can see a lot of improvements on it with Joan's Touch. We knew that new name would come in handy, now we just need a name for Jon, maybe Jon Handy Touch. Once you get everything you want in there you won't want to leave it and come back up north. We miss you.
