Taking shape

The painting is still not finished, the boxes are not at all unpacked, and I've been wearing more or less the same outfit every day, because my clothes are in four different suitcases, but there is progress.

Yellow paint choices for the kitchen:



It's a little less cluttered than this now; a little.



None of these greens made the cut for living room:



This is making me very happy. You might not be able to tell on the computer screen, but the lighter wall is a very pale green.



None of these are the red for my alcove bedroom, but it'll be in this range. Maybe tomorrow.

Very nice. I like the idea of painting squares of color and seeing what looks best. I've recently begun painting two different rooms, only to stop (after an entire wall... or two...) and say, "Ick." Not fun. What's especially funny is that I'm not that picky. Fresh paint is wonderful - almost no matter what. Almost.

I love dark cranberry red for a bedroom. Apparently not restful in the color whatever people promulgate, but I find it warm and cozy and nest-like.

Love the lovely colors. I love color.

Well, red is a difficult color to wake up to. Pink, peach, maybe. We have a moss green, and that's ok. EW, are you going to think I'm a total critic of everything??? Did you look at the Benjamin Moore family of historic colors? The yellows in that are lovely. There's always Farrow & Ball, who never misstep.

I'm jealous. I like the colors of our apt, which you've never seen, granted, but we have butter yellow in living room, avacado (maybe?) green in kitchen, moss green in bedroom, chocolate brown in bathroom, which I highly recommend.

ANd then we have striped gray cats, and they go with everything.

Ooh yummy, I LOVE seeing other people's homes! I think the front room is going to look delightful from that little snap, very restful, just the place for curling up with a cat or two and reading.

And with all the paint squares it looks like an upmarket art installation, in the style of that chap who did the big panels of paint, who I can't remember offhand, which is disgraceful, as I'm supposed to be an artist..oh yes, it was Rothko.

Wood floors too!
