Parlor Before

A little walk down memory lane before the big reveal…
Our parlor has been in constant evolution since we moved in almost 3 years ago.

the day we moved in August 2009, brown on brown
walls were painted BM's Beach Glass
the daybed and jute rug eventually moved to the front porch
the sheepskin rug moved upstairs
then came the new couch and the craigslist wingbacks
the wall color really started to feel too blue and too dark
 things started to make more since when I found the deal of 
the century anthro rug and the Drexel chairs from Mod Livin'
 then we commissioned a painting from  Michelle Armas
but hung it a bit too high
in March we decided to finally install lights in our front two rooms
demo and dust, my least favorite things
that splotch on the wall is the new paint color
Bernie tried to sand down the ancient wallpaper lines
and fix some plaster rot in the corner
that's code for even bigger mess and more dust
 the new paint color going up - Farrow & Ball's Cornforth White
it is the perfect grey and I love love love it
the dog does not like all the disruption
last minute decision - painted the fireplace white
it wasn't original and it wasn't very pretty
we've been using BM's Chantilly Lace throughout the house

it's taking forever, but it's coming together…to be continued
