the new study color

April 3, 2007 at 10:04 pm 2 comments

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that we were painting the study. We finished scraping all the wallpaper off of the ceiling and painted it, and it looks fantastic. It was really in surprisingly good condition given the age of the house… I only wish all of our ceilings looked this great.

Anyways, we picked a shocking color of green for the study walls. It’s a little loud, but I love it anyways. The current plan is to get some white bookcases (probably from Ikea, but the closest Ikea to us is 6 hours away, and the cost of shipping is about 200% the cost of the bookshelves, so I’m not interested). Hopefully the shelves will break up some of the green-ness of the room, and give us somewhere to put the boxes and boxes and boxes of books that have yet to be unpacked. (I’m still not sure why we thought it was a good idea to move all of them…)

After we get the study set up and put together, we’ll be painting my room. I’m going for a teal and brown theme, so I think the walls will probably be a light teal color. Once that’s done, all of the rooms in the house will be pretty much finished, although we may end up repainting the dining room and living room a different shade of neutral – the color on the walls now has slightly pink undertones and I think a little darker shade of tan with more yellow undertones might be better (click on the album below for living room/dining room pics).

    J and J,
    Slow down on the home improvements, you are making the rest of us look bad. Jackie and I are still using cardboard for curtains and we’ve been in our house for over a year.
