Up until last Friday night I knew I was painting my walls blue or purple. I was doing my usual browse through the store, and I kept seeing the conflict in my mind. Whenever I found a decent area rug the blue in the rug clashed with the walls.
Frustrated that I couldn't find the things I need to make this work:
Recently I stayed in a hotel in Arizona. I fell in love with this lobby and I wanted to duplicate it in my living room. Well that wasn't gonna happen, for one thing that's wall paper on the wall, but I figured it should be duplicatable with a sponging technique. I just couldn't manage to even match the color. I'd pick a color in the store, and throw the sample on the wall and nope, not even close. After a little over a month of this I guess I just threw my hands in the air. I surrender!
So after some careful thought I decided to go with a neutral color and bring my blue and silver into the story another way (frames, accessories, etc).
So here's the foundation:
As it turns out I like this color a lot more than I thought I would. I just hate WHITE walls. And in the end anything is better than that. LOL! Now I have a new vision. A new look for my living room. I'll probably wonder around Burlington Coat Factory for a bit, and see if I can find things to add my blues and silvers. I have a couch and a love seat on layaway or price hold at Big Lots. Nope they're not the fanciest. Like I said I got a lot of traffic in and out the house these days, and the money is just not there. But they're nice enough to add to the room. I'll try and get some better pictures to post in a bit.
Until we meet again. Thank you for reading.
