PLAIN WHITE WALLS MAKE ME CRAZY! 
OK, so when we added on this living room a few years ago, 
 Russ just wanted to get it painted and move in. 
I did manage to paint the entertainment center a slightly different hue. 
But the overall effect always made me slightly uneasy.
(Was I living in a rental house that I couldn't paint?) 


“The creative person is willing to live with ambiguity. 
He doesn’t need problems solved immediately 
and can afford to wait for the right ideas.” 
~ Abe Tannenbaum
 
So here we go!
A few months back, I ordered some wallpaper, got a bunch of old paint 
and poured it all together in to a new color, 
put on my painting clothes and some music....
Below are photos and a few close-ups of my results. 
(I am not done... I still am contemplating 4 windows that are along one wall 
and what to do about them...) 




¡Mi favorito corner niche!

Details.

Funky framed framed mirror. (Get it..)

"Welcome" Details. 
Sponge detail in dining area. Yeah I did this awhile ago.
Ceiling over dining table.

Living room ceiling - to add some depth.

Wall edging... no corners.  Yea!

I like your new blog format. Very pretty.

Great paint job. Love that you mixed your colors. Very stunning. And I like how you highlighted your art on the wall. Brilliantly done!!

Is that an armadillo on your shelf????
