This week my contractor arrived to start taping, mudding and patching the walls. This is always an exciting moment when it goes from a shell of a room to a space that I get to start considering painting.
The carpenter came by to do the measure for all the beautiful trim that will be going on the walls. Our home is nearly 100 years old and I'm relying heavily on trim to bring the charm back to this home. The previous owners had done some renovations and we have decided to carry the large baseboards, crown and window moulding throughout the rest of our house.
The September issue of Style at Home featured a lovely nursery that helped me make my decision on trim for the walls. So a combination of this trim:
This: I love the grey and white scheme, surprise surprise
And this: I need to add a touch of old in my room
The plan is to paint the walls before the trim goes up so we have less cutting in to do. We have also learned out lesson and plan on painting trim before it goes up.
I'm a bit torn about metal tones, I've always wanted to use this light but I'm worried about the chrome:
I've also been holding on to a few Antique Alabaster lamps that have a touch of brass and I'm just not sure they will work together. Once the paint goes on the walls I know it will all come together.
My husband and I live a pretty hectic life so I am really looking for a place that feels peaceful and relaxing....once the dust settles maybe that's a possibility.
