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!


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. 

Ceiling Corner Detail.

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????
