First, the fabulous M turned the old sad bland off-white room...
Into this festival of delicous!
The room is a deep dark brown that is the exact color of bittersweet chocolate. I swear, I have the weirdest compulsion to want to lick the walls! The ceiling, which you can't see here, we did in a very pale soft dove gray. It turned out exactly as we imagined, and lit a fire under us to keep going.
R&R and Amazing Goddaughter came over to help us move a couple of pieces over from Charming Suitor's house, and to assemble the shelving.
And also for some cuddles with the Wonder Boy.
By the end of the night we were full of chili and beer and lemon tart, and the room was full of...
Shelving and cabinets and island and rug and OH MY!
The liners on the shelves are pewter gray, and the rug is full of deep jewel tones on a cranberry red base, and CS's gorgeous antique hutches keep it from feeling like a warehouse.
Stay tuned to see how it gets filled up!
Yours in Good Taste,
