Well, I have been working in my studio this week, I finally got back at it. So much going on here the past couple of weeks that I didn't get a chance to work on it. My daughters were home for a week and we played...
I played with my grandchildren and I got to hang out with my girls. We even took a day and went to my sons new condo to help him unpack and arrange furniture. It was a good week.
This has been a huge undertaking anyway, so the process is going very slowly. I knew it would, but I really wanted to do a thorough job. It has taken hours to just pack everything up into bins and move it out.
I have not even sorted yet, I have just cleared the space so I could paint.
I decided on a light paint but with warm tones. It turned out to have more color than I thought. Paint is so hard to see in the store even when I took the paint chip to the window to look at it in natural light. I chose this color.
It is Martha Stewart's, Sisal in flat.
I really like it, it is a tan color with gray undertones. This may come to a shock to you but I do not like the color gray on my walls. There I have said it and it is out in the open! I like it on upholstery and fabrics and as accents but not on my walls. When I enter a room I go for the feel of the room first and paint plays a large part in that.
Because I live in Chicago the winters here are long, cold and gray and I do not want to paint that on my walls too. I want the feel of the room to be warm and peaceful. This color is the perfect compromise.
I used Behr, Pearl White on the trim.
I am going to be staying with a neutral pallet in this room because of all the "stuff" I will be bringing back into it. It is a studio and I tend to go in many different directions when I am creating... usually all at the same time.
I will need a clean pallet. I will be finishing up with the painting today and then I plan on sewing skirting for the counter spaces on my next post.
I also will be posting on my other blog The Love of God...
The Lord has been speaking to me about, His connection to the creative process. Please join me.
We had another red letter day in the life of "our little man"...
