Melissa of the inspired room is coming to my house through the wondrous ways of blog surfing. From My Marrakech, a truly divine site, to Cote (translation: assessment, mark or altitude, take your pick) de Texas, where uncomfortable opinions are risky, I arrived at Melissa's lovely blog.
Her bio revealed she is a color consultant, and one e-mail later we discovered we each live on opposite sides of the mighty Columbia. I was elated. Having for weeks debated over the color/style of my living and dining room walls (and bored friends, neighbors and family with this triviality), I sensed a solution. One more e-mail and a date was agreed upon. This coming Wednesday.
I quite liked the faux finish but it's been 8 years. And I only want to paint those two walls. The open plan is the problem: each wall leads to another with no door to separate the spaces if you see what I mean. I could end up having to repaint the whole house. NO, non, no way.
and what about this eyesore?
So, I will listen to her ideas with an open mind, a closed mouth, and new eyes. She will drop an inspired pearl of wisdom in my ear and I'll *know*. Then, perhaps we will have tea, coffee or wine in the rose garden and get to know each other a little.
If you care to know more, stay tuned. If you don't give damn, who can blame you? Not I.
P.S. Please, Melissa, don't feel any pressure, really . . .
