So, yeah. It’s been slow. Sorry to have left you all with that Miyazaki monster for so long.
Progress: we have a rug!
Anti-progress: I am having cold feet about the wall colour.
This last weekend, I got a piece of foam-core board and painted a big piece with the Admiral Blue paint that I’ve been pining after. It’s an awesome deep indigo blue.
Look how great a backdrop it makes:
But it looks almost black in low light. I’m a bit concerned that with all the mahogany paneling, it might be too dark.
I have also turned our kitchen into a paint-chip laboratory. I am constantly walking by squinting my eyes at all the chips, trying to get a feel for what they’d be like on a larger scale, in case I want to try a variation of dark blue. And I’m still not sold.
I just might go white for the walls. Or light grey. My brain is going to explode, people. Please send your decision-making energies my way. Thanks.
While you do that, here’s a bonus shot of some peonies because it’s peony time! I love these. Most of all, because if I ever wonder which peonies to get, the answer is usually ‘just get ALL the peonies’. I had two bunches in my house this past week (one white, one super dark pink), and I’m thinking I might pick up a few more.
You should too. I’m pretty sure they’re proven to lift the even most decision-burdened of spirits.
