I have another great before and after picture for you! It’s interesting looking at these two photos together. I took them in the afternoon when there is no direct sun in the great room. The latte one looks much lighter than it was.
The latte looks fine but isn’t Knitting Needles amazing? It looks almost white, but it is a light value of grey. And it’s a very neutral grey, without green or yellow; probably with a blue-ish cast.
It was a lovely misty, foggy day on the lake when the first coat was finished, and the grey around the picture window framed it beautifully. And when the trees leaf out in Spring, it will be wonderful as well. The white trim looks crisp and I am going to enjoy adding colors to the room (and the halls and stairways too!). I am very affected by the colors where ever we live and I was thinking that I wouldn’t have painted the Illinois house grey. Not sure why, but the beige based colors were better. Here I want clearer colors.
Naughty me, I have a new project going. It is colder here and I am knitting a hat. I made one in Illinois, but I bet I threw it away thinking I wouldn’t need it here. This photo has eye candy for my weaving friends! This is my antique pine tree and snowflake coverlet, which is one of my all time favorite patterns.
The dust is settling from the painting and repair work and I am vacuuming and dusting and we’re re-arranging furniture. This is the perfect way to begin the New Year!
