Hello there fine people of blogland! How are you? It’s been quite busy around here the past few weeks and I’m ready to get going on some decorating changes that I’ve been milling over.
Let me tell you—if you want a wall color that will instantly improve your mood and put a smile on your face, paint it yellow! This is our guest room/game room, and every time I come in here I wonder why I didn’t paint my whole world yellow. It’s a happy, cheerful room. This wall color is a buttery yellow, but I can’t remember the exact shade—it was the first room I painted, with the help of my mom, when we moved in about five years ago. I still love it. It always gives me a good feeling. And along with the blue and white bedding and Old Violet painted side table it is by far my favorite color palette in this shabby old cottage.
So I have some color plans in the works for another room (or maybe two) in our cottage that involve creamy yellow and gray, or maybe even sage green. I want something warm and welcoming. Fingers crossed for another happy cottage color story. Here’s the thing… I have absolutely zero interest in painting all four walls of any room, so I’m coming up with a plan to infuse some color and character without standing on a ladder for days on end. So hopefully that’s not the road I’m heading down, but I won’t completely rule it out.
Here in the upstairs hallway I finally hung a little something on the walls, make that wall. Grin. It’s the mirror that once hung out on the sun porch. I switched it out for the larger mirror that I added the floral wall paper to to create wall art. It looks nice on the sun porch I think. I’ll share that soon too. And this Dash and Albert carpet remnant I found at a yard sale years ago. It was removed from a staircase so it’s a bit tattered, but I don’t mind.
Have a lovely weekend!
