Melissa of the inspired room celebrates her first year anniversary as a blogger this week. She marvels at having attracted such a following but those of us who have followed her advice are not a bit surprised.
I dithered for weeks wondering about altering the faux finish of my living room and dining walls. Should I go lighter? Darker? Sage? Rosy? Nothing seemed right. I especially didn't want to have to re-paint all the other walls and the hall.
After listening to my uncertainties, she pointed out the obvious: use the same color as on the other walls! It took me a moment or two to re-adjust to this simplest of solution and then I went with it. Actually is a nice rich cream, not rosy as on the picture.
Now that it is done, I am very pleased with the "new" look of the rooms; the space seems more open and brighter. Best of all, it was a very easy and inexpensive transformation.
As an added bonus, I "de-concealed" the content of the china cabinet.
I opted for re-organization instead. It is visually more interesting and it adds brightness, too. The backdrop is a an old sheet, I 'll have to remedy that soon!
Happy anniversary, Melissa, and we look forward to many more!
