Eat, Drink, Be Merry

I mentioned a while back that I was going to paint a wall in my dining room. Behold! Davenport Tan in all its glory, complete with the Guinness posters I couldn’t wait to put up. I love the colours. Green curtains complete the window. kitchen

Now to make the living room look more finished. We’ve got a window the same size as this one in the dining room, and I want a big grommet curtain in there as well, but I’m having a hard time figuring out what colour they should be. With the dining room’s being green, I don’t want to do anything too drastic in the living room since everything on the main floor is in such close proximity. But we’ve been here for eight and a half months, it’s really not an urgent matter. I’d rather wait and get just the right thing than go spend money on something I’m not sure about just to get something hung up. Sometimes I am painfully indecisive. At least there’s a bit of colour in the living room now as I painted the same colour on the main wall in there. Looks good.

I still want to go to HomeSense. Surely all my decorating woes could be solved in short order with a little time and money in that store. Alas, I wait.

    Davenport Tan – is that Benjamin Moore paint? I think this is the same colour in our bedroom. I love it! Very classy and clean but also warm and homey! Great choice.

    Yes, Benjamin Moore! In my experience they make the best paint. I used the Natura paint for this and it was so worth the extra money to not have that paint smell hovering in the house forever.

    It looks great!!! Love the colour! The posters look so good. Can’t wait to see what you do with the rest of the house.

    We are going to reno the bathroom – maybe we need to take a trip to HomeSense together!
