We just repainted our Living Room. It was not just a horrible, sloppy paint job (ours), it was also much too dark. I was amazed at how much this lighter color changed not just the appearance but the whole atmosphere of the room. Some of the decorations simply would not work as before. It was a wonderful and creative process (once I 'saw' it, a bit agonizing before). Providentially, I found the perfect use for a collection of dessert plates I was recently given (some of which are on the wall). I thought I'd never be able to use them because of their pink border. Well, they're per-fect. The illustration in the middle looks like Toile. Here is an evening snapshot of one corner of our lovely 'new' living room.
