d*s (part one)

yesterday was spent on some new projects and all sorts of work around the house. i thought i’d share some shots of our living room as we start to get things going. there’s a gap in the artwork above our couch as i wait for some new pieces to arrive and we’re still looking for a rug (and some fabric for the window). so i thought i’d open it up to you guys. we have a grey chair and a green and white couch (with touches of yellow and pink on the wall). what sort of fabric should i get for the window? we have one window that i’d like to make a roman shade for but i’m torn on the fabric. i wanted a neutral linen or neutral almost burlap-type fabric but i’m open to ideas. anyway, that’s the dining room in the back but it’s just barely coming together (need to get chairs, mirror for the main wall) but i thought i’d share for the heck of it…

    Hi, I love your apartment. I just painted my LR seapearl (also BM), and it washes out in sunlight and casts a greenish tone in artificial light. Does your seapearl do the same? Does it contrast enough with the white trim, and go with your bright colors? (am trying to figure out whether to repaint!).

    Hi, I love your home — it’s beautiful.

    I just painted my LR the BM seapearl as well, and am trying to figure out if the color works. It washes out in bright sunlight; and casts a greenish pall in articial light at night. Does your seapearl do the same thing? Is there enough contrast with the white trim, and does it go well with your bright colors/

    i’ve been pretty happy with seapearl. it doesn’t look greenish at night for us, but it could be because we use pretty yellow bulbs. i wish i’d picked something a bit darker but it’s been pretty good to us…
