I continue to get requests for pictures of the house. Since today was a rainy day and nixed my plans for outdoor painting and yard work, I was forced to spend some time inside. I finally got our room completely unpacked, or at least all of the boxes out of there.
I was a little unsure if we should hang curtains but now I am glad we did. The wall color is blue which seems like a strange choice, but in the end I really like it. It is a nice and relaxing color.
I thought I would include a few pictures from the previous owners to compare what we have done.
(unfair to them, really, we took these pictures without any prior notice)
People who have been in our old place laugh because this bedroom is almost exactly the same configuration. De Ja Vu.
I have almost put all of our living room boxes away. This does not mean I am finished with this room. I still need ideas, particularly for over the mantle. I am taking suggestions.
I eventually want to repaint this room a grey-blue, maybe like the bedroom. I also want to refinish the fireplace. Glass tile?
I only had one set of curtains. I am wondering now, do I leave the other two windows bare? Do I buy some other curtains (white or black?) and accent with some matching fabric that I have? Or should I make a boxed valence with the matching fabric? I could use some input. (If you look next to the bookshelf you can see the other curtain rods in their boxes. I need to know if I should take them back or not within the next month or so.)
