Last night I wrote the MOST inspired, fabulous and engaging post in Whimages history only to wake up this morning to find it gone! Ok, so maybe it wasn't that fabulous or inspired but it took me a while to write! It was a bit lengthy. This time I'm just going to give you the facts. Jack.
Our living room has somehow morphed into the room that our teenage twins like to entertain their friends. I think it has more to do with the fact that WE are not in there than it attracting them style wise. Regardless, it's ready for a little makeover. I have NEVER like the paint color in there. It's a soft lemon yellow when it was supposed to be matched to our kitchen and foyer which is a soft, warm butter yellow. We've decided to put wainscoting and crown (which might be a long while!) and paint the top a gorgeous Sherwin Williams color I saw on HOUZZ called Tidewater Blue. This is a totally different method to choosing a paint color than what I normally do. I usually "see" the color in my head and then go pick it out. (that sounds like I'm some freak) So this is a stretch for me...I hope we love it! It's the color of the walls in the first photo from yesterdays post. We also want to have the furniture slip covered in some super incredibly durable and washable fabric. I think we'll get this all accomplished when the money tree we planted in the backyard starts to bloom. In the meantime here are some of the rooms that have been inspiring me! (I hope this post doesn't disappear!)
