I had the urge for change. I knew the answer was paint.
Now, I have to admit the urge hit in July and I have had my living room slathered with paint chips and photos. I don't think you should rush into a big color change.
After hours on Pinterest getting ideas, the pictures went back up, new collections were added and furniture was flipped around.
I absolutely LOVE it. It went from a deep, dark mustard ale color to a cool sage --Ancient Marble to be exact.
It's calming, soothing, lovely in the sun and equally as attractive in the rain which is a good feature for a home in the Pacific Northwest.
I love how it compliments our mercury glass collection....
I come down my stairs every morning and walk down the hallway towards the newly painted living area and I feel as if I am in a new home. It never ceases to amaze me how a can of paint can change an entire feeling in a room. I probably haven't spent more than an 2 to 3 hours in my living room for the last 2 years. Since the paint job....we gather there every day.
The calm was good while it lasted!
