I absolutely loved clicking through this slide show of an architectural color consultant, Eve Ashcraft. (Doesn't that title sound great?) I actually clicked through it multiple times. I even made plans in my head to visit the paint store at some point during my hectic day. I wonder what she would recommend for our home. There is brown trim everywhere, on off-white walls. I have gathered energy and courage to think about painting before, but never enough to actually plan to go look at paint colors. Our house is just too needy; it would require more energy than I have been able to muster. But while looking at the colors Eve used in her home, I was moved. However, I recognize that the artwork on her walls and her eccentric furniture accentuate the paint colors on the walls. (I even love how her books are arranged.) Hmmm, maybe I won't actually get to the paint store today... but this was a huge step for me to even just think about it.
Maybe I'll get there someday... with someone's help.
