I’m a new woman thanks to Farrow and Ball Pointing, and that’s no exaggeration. While the ORC space isn’t even MY space, I feel like it was me that got the facelift rather than my parents’ living room. I am feelin good after last week.
Last week I was whiney, needy, just plain ANNOYING. I couldn’t see past that tan paint and all of the sudden this project that I’ve poured so.much.time into went down the drain in my head. Side note: if you ever decide to design a room that is 4 hours away from your own home, and you think you will be able to manage the project from your home 4 hours away, think again. I’ve basically moved in with my parents, Parker has been living alone for the past week and a half, and the local Starbucks here in Lufkin knows me by name now.
I’m here today to say the power of paint is real. REAL. I mean everyone says that, but I saw it with my own eyes. Earlier this week I shared about painting our dining room green on a total whim, but the decision to paint this living room white was very planned and intentional. (You can’t exactly use other people and their budget for experimenting…….) I’m not trying to say painting a room white is some monumental thing because it’s not, I know. It’s lovely yet it is safe, but sometimes a bit of safe is what the space and homeowner needs. Plus I’d have a friendly argument with anyone that F&B Pointing is one of the best whites out there.
My mom was originally a little uneasy about going full on white with this space. She had tan before and white can be a very scary thought. But in the right space, it’s just so good.
Is there even a comparison???
I think I forgot to mention that there is a sofa going there……. It was a modern vintage gem I found from my spot in Austin. It’s being upholstered in Tonic Living’s Oatmeal Slub Linen as I type. Hopefully being delivered tomorrow.
Can you even handle what those windows will be with gorgeous linen drapes??? I got the email this week that they shipped from Tonic Living, and I can’t wait to see them hung. I went with their Tuscany linen in “Oyster” and will use their matte black hardware.
I’ve also got to figure out how to style that beast of a coffee table. How many different vignettes?? Help!
I finalized the art yesterday. It was something I had been putting off because I needed to see other elements come together first. I think art is a great way to tie a space together, thus why I waited so long to choose the pieces.
