Paint Job


I guess I kind of took an extra long weekend here on the blog, eh? Oh boy, I couldn’t wait for this long weekend to get here. After the hustle of NYFW, I was ready for a weekend with little plans other than relaxing. Well, actually, I did end up doing a few things. One of my friends was visiting from DC and we grabbed brunch one morning. Also, my roomie and I had been talking about painting our living room for a while and this weekend we finally took the plunge!

It took us forever to decide what color we wanted and at one point I didn’t think we’d be able to agree. However, after much debate, we finally settled on a cool blue. I’m very happy with the color we chose and I love it best when there’s just a little bit of natural light filtering through the window. Since the hallway from the front door flows into the living room and there’s no clear delineating line on that wall, we decided to leave one wall as is. Turns out I actually really like the contrast of having three blue walls and one white wall.

Okay, this is slightly embarrassing for me to admit, but this is really the first thing we’ve done to our living room decor-wise. After all my grand plans and visions when we first moved into this apartment (about four months ago- what?!), it’s taking us a while to put them into action. There are several restrictions (money, space, permanency, etc.), but I’m glad we’ve finally taken a step in the right direction. Next on the list- a bigger couch!

Tell me: How long did it take you to decorate your current home?

    Nice color. I’m personally never ever done decorating my apartment. Things are always being swapped out, upgraded, altered. I’ve been lagging on getting it to a presentable point in my new place, too. Let’s get on this. :)

      Thanks Alison! That makes a lot of sense- right now we’re still building the foundation. It’s just feels like 4 months is a long time to wait before getting it presentable in a place where we may only live for one year.

    Good for you! Painting the room is the first step….I’m overdue for a new shade of white (I hated it the moment I painted it 5 years ago) so when I head back home, it might be a new summer project thanks to your inspiration here ;) Love the blue! Perfect shade!
