An abstract painting?
You would think I might proceed in a pretty, organized fashion- but the whole family chimed in and this is what we came up with. A gray mess? Well, it suits it’s purpose.
Here’s the scoop… We live in an open concept, ranch style home. My favorite features of the house include the nice big windows (sunny and bright), open feel, and high ceilings. My least favorite? That darn orange oak wood…sigh. I would like to paint it white in the future, but for now… it’s just orange.
In the meantime, I’m over the current beige we painted the walls 6 years ago and would like to refresh the look, starting with a new shade leaning towards gray. Anything with even a lick of blue in it just “embellishes” the beauty (lol) of the wood. So cold gray is out and taupe is in (a good compromise).
I think we have a winner- Benjamin Moore’s Brandon Beige. I liked it immediately, which I’ve learned is a good sign. If you’ve ever talked yourself into a shade, it never seems to end in contentment (been there).
A print or 2 from Etsy (behappynow)- I will frame them with white matting and simple metal frames…
I was feeling inspired by this house tour on House*Tweaking– love this place…
