On my way back from New york I stopped by a New Jersey Lowes to pick up paint for my much talked about desire to paint at least half of my bedroom. Once there, however, I realized I wasn't entirely ready to make such a commitment. So I bought small samples of two blues and two reds, since my thought was to have a blue/red theme...with one on the window treatments one as the main color. Above and below are what those colors look like under different light conditions. As much as I felt the reds when they were sample colors on paper, I didn't feel like they looked quite right on the wall. But I did sort of dig both of the blues. The lighter color, which I imagine becoming the predominant color, is called 'Ocean Sigh,' which does reflect a certain overall sentiment of my self. In my mind.
So I'm thinking 'Ocean Sigh' for the walls with this darker blue for the window trimming. I kind of want a red element too, simply because I do, but I don't see that happening. Or it could. I just don't know exactly how. Technically, L. says she will do the painting, but I have to make her quite a nice meal. I like making nice meals. The idea of leaving the painting to her, whilst I am focusing on food would be my preference. Of course, I actually have to buy the paint and brushes and rollers and primer before this actually becomes a matter worth discussing at length. Still, these are the colors.
Oh yes, and today is Christmas. Merry Christmas. I tend to prefer 'Happy Holidays' but that seems sort of silly on Christmas day.
