We had a lovely old Hoosier cabinet and an old meat block. We hung copper pans from the hood that the Lord of the Manor built over the old gas range. That kitchen was our first do-it-yourself project and we loved it. The rest of the house had boring white walls and we always meant to paint them, but then we found another house...
In that house we painted the living room blue and papered the dining room with blue and white. Our bedroom had pink wallpaper. The den was camel and terracotta. The bathroom had the original pink and gray tile. The kitchen had yellow, green, and orange plaid wallpaper (not our doing), and yellow tile. So that house was full of color too.
And now we live in a house with a yellow living room, red library, burgundy dining room, tan kitchen, one gold bedroom, one purple bedroom, one green bedroom, and believe it or not - white bathrooms. But something is being done about that. We are going to paint one of them robin egg blue. If I can just get the color right. First I bought some green and it was just wrong. Then I bought some blue and it was too bright. Then I started mixing the two
and came up with the color on the far right. I think it's the one, but what do you think? We have lots of white tile and all white fixtures in the room. The faucets and hardware are all chrome. The accessories can pick up the beachy theme. We have lots of shells that we've collected that could be mounted in shadow boxes to hang on the walls. We have some lovely old blue glasses that would match. And maybe I could make some shorebird "decoys" for the shelves. Your creative input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
