"and get on with it. " Tom Scheerer, House Beautiful, November 2012.
Tom's quote, in the most recent House Beautiful, really struck home. I've been going back and forth as to whether or not to paint my living room. Currently, our living room has chocolate (more mocha colored) walls. And, I have kinda fallen for them. They are cozy, intimate and sophisticated. See below (they look lighter in this photo).
However, what I really want are white walls and a (contrasting) painted trim. Every image I pin has lighter walls. There is a part of me that just wants to work with what I have for the moment because I can easily paint the walls in the future. And, I doubt I'll ever have dark walls again (at least, in my living room). And, maybe I need to get out of my comfort zone a little. Here are some inspiration pictures of rooms with chocolate/brownish walls.
Aren't they cozy? Perfect for the fall and winter seasons here in New England. Decisions, decisions....what to do....
Hope you all have a good weekend. My heart and prayers goes out to all those still dealing with the aftermath of hurricane sandy.
