Bet you thought I meant my hair colour!! Well the cut style is changing slightly but since its only half way to a new look I am not showing you yet.
Last week Vince and I finally chose a new dining room table and chairs and since the dining room/kitchen and sitting areas are all one big room we needed to change the sitting area to go with our new look....so my painter (the new dad) came over to give my wall its new gravel paint colour. I have loved the dirty turquoise colour that it was and was nervous and a bit sad to see it go....
BUT...I love the finished look, the gravel colour seems to change with the light, sometimes looking mauve(ish) and sometimes brown(ish) plus its very smart. The rest of the walls if they are not windows are cream so the rooms are still light and airy. I have had fun adding some black and some neutral/black pillows and I've had fun searching for things that we already own that havent been out on display for ages to complete the new look, of course some things have had to be packed away as they dont look right at the moment.
Oh, besides the table and chairs we also bought a new sideboard, its made from tin! I am still playing with ideas for what to put on it and on the wall behind it. One idea was lots of family black and white photos....time consuming to do but fun, we did buy a rather interesting large clock (I adore clocks as you know so buying anew one made me very happy!). I am also considering stencilling a number in red on the wall to match the numbers on the draws?? Probably 30 or since we live at No3, maybe a 3 would be fun?
What do you think about the stencilled number on the wall? I will show you the table/chairs and wall once its completed but it will have to wait now until I return from my trip to the US for Quilt Market and Festival.
