Did I mention I don’t like green either?

I think the color scheme for the house was nature like and cozy. Greens, beige, mustard yellow. Not a blue wall in sight.

Ugh.

My next project (or complaint if you want to know the truth) is the living room. Green. And not a cheerful green. A dark, claustrophobic avocado green. Sigh. I wanted it gone.

Nice wood burning stove. Not so nice green paint.

My family was coming from California and Germany. They asked if there was anything they could bring. I told them painting clothes?

They were gracious enough to spend 2 days working hard to make it into a “me” living room. I had consulted with my brother-in-law to get the color scheme down. The exact hues that would go together. I asked my sister-in-law (an amazing artist) if she would paint some birch trees like I had seen in a photo. She said yes. I have to say I am thrilled with the final results!

Pictures on the wall. These are ones we took. Cool, eh?

    Very nice! I loved the idea of the birch trees. I was blown away at how much difference it made in the living room. If you retake that picture with natural lighting I think you’ll see how the stove completely disappears due to the high contrasting background.
    Anywho, great idea!
