I love the simplicity of this photo. The straight lines intrigue me. I was sitting in the sunroom when I took this photo looking through the house. The lines of the nearby window, the French doors and the beautiful window in the distance are so interesting. Couple that with the arch and the reflection of green in an otherwise black and white image is striking.
Ok, so we talked about color (on the walls). We were getting so tired of all white. But after thinking, the white with black windows is stunning. A color with black windows… hmmmm. You don’t see it as often, not that it would stop us if we really liked it, but… So, our latest thought is that we will maybe have one cozy dark (navy) room for now and see how it goes from there.
Our house is over 90 years old and it has the original light yellow subway tile around the fireplace. It’s a very light yellow, but it’s tired, and yellow is not our color. So thinking of a change in the future, maybe in tandem with a bathroom reno, when a good tile person will already be at the house. It’s fun to think about.
Some people purchase a piece of furniture and paint a room and it stays that way for many, many years and looks beautiful. We love change. I cannot tell you how many configurations this house has been, how many colors we’ve painted nearly every room over the years. Who knows what we’ll end up with. #wedontevenknow Time will tell.
✍️ Until next time…
