As you know, I've been trying to cottage up our living room. I had an idea in my head as to the direction I wanted to go and as the pieces started to come together I liked it less and less but I figured I'd live with it for a while and see if it "grew" on me.
Then the other day my husband put the decisive nail the coffin with his ever so tactful comment, "This turquoise makes me want to puke." Sorry for the graphic language but if I'd said it any other way you might have missed the passion behind it.
I still love the color combination and the softness of the look but in the overall scheme of the living room, with it's bulky brown leather sofa's, it just isn't working.
So most, (not all) of the robin's egg (not turquoise, honey) blue is being painted. I'm not sure what color yet, probably red since it is the common thread throughout the adjoining dining room and kitchen.
That's the great thing about decorating...try something new and if it doesn't work out you can always repaint or recover and start over.
This redo is a very inexpensive and easy fix but I've had others that cost me much more.
What about you?
