You've Come a Long Way, Baby: Music Room

A view of our new house, past and present. A reminder of how far we've come, and a morale-booster for the upcoming weekend of work.



Oh, heaven. This looks so much better now. Remember how the trim took three coats of paint? I'd rather not. I'd rather remember how lovely and empty and green this space is now, with morning sun slanting through the windows.

This room was probably the parlor-- it has fancier trim than any other room-- but we're not really the parlor type. This is going to be the music room. Primarily a space for Patrick's gear, maybe also with room for a couch for family hootenannies someday.

The color is growing on me. It definitely looks best in natural light (turn on an incandescent bulb and it turns pea-soup green) which is okay, since this room gets plenty. The floors are the same as the ones in the Great Room. We are so fortunate to have such beautiful wood.

In the middle picture you can see the shelves from the built-in, which I pulled out and painted. I'll hopefully have an update about that on Monday.

Happy Friday!

PLEASE tell me you kept that gorgeous orange chair? J/K. I love the shade of green. Remind me what it is again?

Ha! No, the chair is history. The paint is Benj. Moore's Dill Pickle. You should see it in person before you go falling in love with it, though. It's very chameleonic.

The colors you chose are so lovely and full of life.
