It’s a fresh start to a New Year and I’m back today with a young blogger who took on a home renovation with her hubby. I met Meg who blogs at Green With Decor at Haven last year and she’s been blogging for 2 years. They are a young couple in their 20’s and have already renovated 2 houses. Currently they live in Milwaukee and their 1950’s house got lots of gutting and renovating to get it where it is today. They’ve done everything from gutting the kitchen and baths, to refinishing hardwoods, and working on the exterior as well. I love seeing home stories and the difference all these projects can make to a home. Let’s get started!
A 1950’s house can be very charming, but also have quirks as well. You would never know this is an older house by looking at it now. Hardwoods in the family room look great.
Fireplace and seating add coziness to the space.
As you can see from Meg’s blog name, she loves the color green and that hue is all over her home. She must really love the new Pantone Greenery color this year!
This is their cute fur baby.
The kitchen was completely gutted and they moved a few things around, adding this nice large peninsula with seating. It looks so light and bright now, love it.
That splash of green looks great in the space.
Those big floor to ceiling cabinets must come in handy.
An eat in breakfast area as well adds more seating.
Meg worked on her office space giving it a modern feel with black furniture and green walls.
Looks like a great place to blog!
The family room has comfy seating and red accents.
Meg loves to paint furniture too and repurpose those older pieces.
The master bedroom is causal and comfortable looking.
The master bath also in green. Great idea with the baskets and cubbies.
More of the master bath.
This bathroom used to have pink and black tile, but got a refresher of black and white, a personal fave of mine.
They’ve been hard at work on the exterior too, creating a nice seating area on the patio.
Of course, more green is used here, which I can’t fault, since I love this color too. Looks so cozy out here.
What a nice space to enjoy in the summer!
Hope you enjoyed this tour of Meg’s Milwaukee 1950’s fixer upper, it sure is looking good now. Stop by Green With Decor for more information on her makeover.

I love this house ! It is so refreshing because it simple and not over done. Just enough green. Even the bananas on the countertop were a perfect match!
So lovely and fresh. Even their fur baby is photogenic!

Rhoda, thanks for sharing this young couple’s home. It is truly an amazing job that they have completed…very fresh and clean-looking spaces!
This green is one of my favorite shades of green used in homes. I love her kitchen! Thanks for sharing this pretty home Rhoda.
