I’m back to thinking about painting my molding green in then den. Yes, we have a few other tentative projects that may finally be taking shape (if you follow me on twitter) but talking about paint is way more fun.
The molding conversation has been going on for over a year now? I’m seriously not that indecisive but other things are holding me up from painting the room. I am waiting to get my chimneys, electric, and possibly the ceiling rehung before I paint. I’ve had a lot of time to think about colors and test out every green paint under the sun. I forget about the project for months and then I come back to it after seeing an amazing green room in a magazine or in a house in Marblehead.
Last weekend a friend and I stopped into the Marblehead Arts Association. The first floor gallery as this amazing molding painted a sage green. I’ve stared at this room a hundred times this past summer…seeing the room paired with stripped floors really seals the deal for me. I want to paint my molding green!
I don’t want to do my walls as white but a little creamier. My two favorite greens are Farrow & Balls’s Cooking Apple Green and Verte De Terre. Below snapshots of the gallery from my iphone and a shot of the room in question.
