Do Men Always Do It First?
I know color is a really "in" thing right now, but my neighbor has been into it for the last 10 years that I know of.
He is an undiscovered trend setter.
This blue is really this vivid. I love it.
My Hunny did the paint job. My Hunny was not so sure about this vivid blue. For one thing it was hard to paint with. But that is probably not the first thing that my Hunny was thinking about the with this color choice. Don't you love the pillows?
How about from this direction?
Love the stain glass on each side.
Love the choice of light fixture.
It's pretty fun over here!
Actually all the rooms are pretty cool, each different but with the same bold color palate.
You know, a long time ago, when I was getting bored with my house;
I went over to my neighbor and asked him what color he would paint the living room. He said gold. I was amazed, that is one color i would have never picked.
Which prompted my neighbor to go back and paint another room at his place in that theme. Of course he kicked it up a notch.
Each collection also has a theme. This is the modern, bold statement section.
I could handle these paintings in my house--really I could--easy peasy. I am not coveting, yeah right, I am admiring!
I am flat crazy about the dark blue vase in that still life. The sunflowers over on the side wall kinda float my boat too.
Isn't this place fun?
The BRIGHT ORANGE
fireplace mantle. I really thought this was going to be his first really BIG mistake. My Hunny painted it. MY Hunny thought maybe he was having one of those crises. Nah, just teasin.
It works, a bright orange fireplace mantle. Yes, the color is that bright.
I remember when he came home with all these armloads of flowers.
Not being indirect I just blurted it right out; "Whatcha goinna do now?"
Little laugh, "you'll see."
Darn right I'll see, wild horses couldn't keep me away. What's he gonna do next?
Inquiring minds want to know!
