Okay, the fall dreaming is becoming a reality. I’m just about to throw on my painting garb and head downstairs to put my first coat of nearly-black-paint on the walls in the DR. I’ll be using the same color (Behr paint matched to Ace’s Arabian Night) that I used in the entry way and in the kitchen/mudroom. I’m really excited to see how all the spaces will start to come together and relate to one another. None of the rooms on the main floor will have full floor to ceiling black walls, and I think because of this, it won’t seem overpowering or redundant. I think.
I’ve mocked up a few more pics, I wanted to see what the color would look like against the dark teal living room walls and dining room built-in buffet. When making design decisions I usually mock up a space in either photoshop or sketchup depending on the size of the project. It really helps me make better decisions.
One thing I’ve always wondered about. What do I do with the ceilings, ideally I would knock down the popcorn texture, but I’m in no rush to do that. What color do I paint them? I always have done white, as I feel it helps to bounce light around the room, but is there supposed to be some sort of magical formula for this. Help a woman out!
Jeff may have given me the okay on purchasing two of those blush chairs that I mentioned in last weeks post. Target was running a sale last weekend, spend $500 you save $150, so how could I not do it! The chairs are online only, and I’m a bit concerned about the size and color. Fingers crossed that they will be perfect. Also they are on backorder and won’t be arriving till mid November. Until then, I paint.
