Take a look at my office space

Here are the stairs with the office/studio straight ahead:

Stairs Up 1

Everything was white…walls, woodwork, and the carpet is beige. Time to change it up!

So, I have chosen Benjamin Moore “Pale Avocado”.

It’s also one of the Pottery Barn Fall 2010 colors. Love it, love it! I tested, I started to paint. Ah no…one coat will not do, so now I’m about to begin the second coat.






So far, so good. The room gets lots of Eastern light, so the mornings will be wonderful (my best time of day!).

And for the carpeting:




It’s called “Vintage Sterling”. This picture makes it look so dark, but it’s actually a grayed silver. does that make sense? Well, it’s beautiful. I think the combination is stunning. I have an upholstered armchair that I will recover. I’m thinking of adding a bit of red to the room, via the chair and maybe window trim of some sort…

Lots more to follow!
