view with a room

well, the painting is completed. it only took 2 days and 3 coats and a 10-ft. ladder and the step ladder. and lots and lots of patience. and an air matress. i love the color. it is the color of wet sand, appropriately titled "beach." i should have the new bedding in a couple of weeks, so i will post more pictures then. and speaking of pictures... i need to get some things up on the walls. they are very bare aside from the paint. i did think the darker color might make our big room appear smaller, but it really doesn't. that wouldn't necessarily have been a bad thing, but it does warm it up a bit from the cold off-white they were painted.

here is a photo tour around our room. it begins in the doorway and goes clockwise:

the girls proudly show off their corner.

looks different on every wall, doesn't it? sometimes it looks grey. sometimes brown. sometimes it seems to have a greenish hue. i love it! i can't wait for phase 2.

I love it! It looks very soothing. :) And I love the sweet girl's faces showing off their corner. They look cozy!

Nice work, Stace (and Jay)!

Ooh, I like that. :-)

Have you thought about moving the bed though? If I was trying to 'cosy up' that room, I'd try having the bed under the slanted roof (the one that has your dresser/mirror on it right now. sleeping under a lower roof (especially if you're sleeping during the day) might feel cozier?

And thanks for the blog comment, I really appreciate it. X.
