|I can't tell you how happy I was to see that moss green disappear.|
It felt good.
After considering the options, we decided to go with Knoxville Gray as a strong accent colour above the fireplace and the Wickham Gray for the rest of the room.
(The colours in my photos don't exactly match the swatches, largely because of lighting, I think.)
I could hardly wait to pull off the painter's tape and the dropcloths to see the room. I was not disappointed.
|Not sure if this is the picture we will hang over the fireplace. It seems a little under scale.|
Here, again, is what we've got with our new paints.
|Haven't hung the brass hand- and foot-prints.|
You'll notice that we have not (yet) brought the large armchair back into the room. It just feels so much better without it there that we're waiting to see whether we miss it or not.
Instead, we've moved the old sewing machine to that spot.
|This was my Aunt Betty's sewing machine and has been given to Katie.|
We only have it temporarily, but it has great sentimental value.
And here is our "dark" corner.
This is where the sewing machine used to live. Not sure what we'll do there. We're thinking about book cases as we need more!
This is the other print option for over the fireplace.
|Again, the matte is pretty much a perfect match|
for the wall colour, which is not necessarily a good thing.
But tell me: which painting do you prefer above the fireplace: the screen-door etching or the larger veiled flowers print?
