So, if one doesn't have sun and warmth, one must create it.
Let there be light!
|With the light paint colours, this stair runner is too bold. Something in the William Morris style would be ideal, but it will have to wait. The wall on the right, leading to the kitchen is earmarked for a mural.|
Don't get me wrong, I love dark, rich colours. The previous owner's selection was very sophisticated, uncommon and elegant, befitting the style of the house. And if one can live with a darker palette, one should go ahead and do it. I took these shots the first winter after we moved in to the DV. Very atmospheric, elegantly spooky, don't you think? Don't mind the otherworldly orbs. The hallway entrance was, after all, the first tangible contact we had with the DV and we fell hard for this house.
We still have to do minor touch-ups, a window covering and a cushion on the trunk but this huge painting job is pretty much done.
Thank you for following me on this project.
I feel like my inner bear is morphing into a song bird...
or perhaps a Harpy.
