For the past year (ish) since we put up the board and batten in the living room, I’ve been pondering the perfect paint job for what should go above it. I knew I wanted pattern, but that’s about the extent of it.
But Nick is FINALLY finishing up what used to be our wall, but is now what we call ‘the arches’, I’m starting to get serious about making some decisions.
The truth is, just about ANYTHING would be better than the current offensive yellow walls. The best way to describe them is… well something you’d see in a mental institution, maybe (not that I would know… or DO i)? Or in a heavy smoker’s home.
Yep, I picked that color out too! Speaking of mental institution, I may not have been at the top of my game when I made that decision.
There’s a point here, I promise!
I think I’ve made a decision… and whipped up this little ‘wall mood board’ so I can visualize it.
The wall will be gray, and the leaf pattern will be metallic gold.
I like that it will have some flair and glam with the gold, but the whole thing will still be very neutral and won’t be too obnoxious… (What with the orange accents at all)!
Since the kitchen is dark teal, and we have the dining room to worry about as well (repainting soon as well), we don’t want things to get too busy, or too colorful… with all three rooms flowing into each other.
Here’s a little reminder of how you can see the whole downstairs (almost).
I would consider showing you a real life picture from the same exact vantage point so you could truly compare, but that would require picking up a lot of baby toys. I neither have the energy, nor the emotional stability to ‘bare it all’ today.
OH! And there are curtains in the works to! So excited for my living room to finally start coming together! Soon we’ll be talking about FURNITURE… yay!
