I’ve got a permanent case of the stripes. Whether it is clothes, fabric, walls or even ceilings I’m smitten. I’ve been a stripes girl for years- dating back as far as my high school wardrobe. Just about every house I’ve lived in has been a victim in some capacity. Why should this house be any different?
I did wait 20 long, painful months. I’m glad I gave in and got out the painter’s tape. My house feels happy now. The graphic element helps define the space. I sometimes felt like the family room was a walk-through or had a “blank” feeling to it but now I can feel all four corners.
I actually did stripes on the opposite wall (the window wall) as well. Not pictured today but consider it a coming soon. The colors are the original Antique White from Sherwin Williams and a new SW color from the HGTV Home collection called Curling Willow. It feels both taupe and gray depending on the light.
I’ve missed blogging. January has been a month of playing catch-up. Balancing my new job with everything else has been a lesson in efficiency and I’m finally finding my groove. Reid missed almost a week of school with a nasty viral illness and we had a couple of snow/ice days but we have hit our stride after stumbling into the New Year.
