as well as the bathrooms which need major work,
and well, finishing the kitchen… those are all a bit MORE THAN simple
and then for the remaining 23 hours…it is a dark shady room.
and…all Benjamin Moore:
I resolved that perhaps
Our house has been named “Fairview” since it was
originally built in 1830
(it burned down and was rebuilt in 1880)
so it seemed like a sign…and…PLUS-
It is a gorgeous color!
A grayed down brown with NO red in it, like fertile dry gray dirt.
and I have got to paint it.
(of course I brought my Benjamin Moore Paint wheels to the beach)
…I called my paint store back home
and ordered the paint to pick up next Monday!!!
This color looks lovely next to the colors in the adjoining rooms:
“Maritime White”- OC 5
“Creamy White” – OC 6 (aka “Spring in Aspen”) –
and “Feather Down”- OC 7…
and then…this is my favorite part…
I started poking around the internet
to look for examples of this color to show you and I found this
BEAUTIFUL HOME and its GORGEOUS BLOG
And I even bought the paint a YEAR ago,
to paint my posts High Gloss Black like theirs!!!
It’s a sign!
|For the Love of a House|
This house and their use of this color
make me 100% certain that ASHWOOD
will transform my Dining
room into the beautiful room it is meant to be!
Now I need to go
For the Love of A House
we have so much in common, including the fact that OUR tiny town
also does not even have a traffic light!
