How the front room is coming along..
Gone are the tobacco-stain yellow walls with the brothel red&gold trim on the architraves .. the transformation so far is stunning - so light, so clean, I love this room!
Still have decisions to make - such as that dark block of colour on the far right, behind the chair .. it's supposed to be a feature colour on the wall behind the fireplace .. but i've put it on hold for the time being, as I might let my drama lie in my furnishings, so it depends on the two wing chairs I will get for each corner of the room and their colour. I've got a few things in mind, but we'll see what's out there, in my budget, etc.
Um, what else? Oh yes, so i've been putting this room together forever, picking paint, imagining how things should be.. and then yesterday, I remembered a magazine i'd saved since 2001 .. the cover was delicious and I find it every so many years and still swoon over it.
But i'd forgotten all about it.
Well, it turns out that was the look I was subconciously creating. The memory of this mag, coming to be in a flash yesterday, made me immediately seek it out, and looking at it once again, filled me with happiness.
Beige and White and Red and Black.
Hope you like it so far ! x
