I'm determined to paint the livingroom this month.
The last coat it had was a few years back and was a pale shade that was supposed to look white on the walls - one of those 'rosy' type whites that would brighten and romanticize the space.
Yah. My walls are pink.
It's most obvious when the sun is full into the room - it nips in and pours over the bookcase, flooding the room with...a pinky glow.
It's a long, narrow room - I've been debating deep colors as I don't want to make the proportions appear too small - but the lighter colors all look...well, the same, and I want a change.
Cinnabar Glaze, Bengal Grass, Deep Sea Odyssey, Saguaro. The names alone make me shiver.
I thought a nice deep blue, picking up on some colors on a much-loved litho - but after I brought the chips home, that idea was deemed horrible (livin' in a blue bubble, ladies and gentlemen!) and so I turned to (where else?) the internet.
And now thanks to a few different sites that let you dummy up a practice room and fill in with the color you want, I'm finally decided.
It's DEFINITELY either going to be a lovely deep olive green. Or something cinnamon-y.
Or? Or. Damn.
Maybe I should wait to see how the winter light falls.....
