Now that my kitchen, livingroom, diningroom and bedroom... as well as my bathroom is nearly done... and I am about to finally move in to my new house... of course I have started to plan everything else... like the hallway upstairs and downstairs... I have allready bought paint for this, and it will be in subtle warm grays... the floor will become checkered.... I have allready bought an old windows frame that will become a great pictureframe... and I have decided that I think teal colours should accent this.... I love teal, and I am so pleased with the bedroom so yeh... I think teal should do it...
then there's the ever important library... origianlly ment to be teal as well, but I have moved away from this... It will be plum... Plum and with dark floors, and dark wooden shelves... stained to that antique feeling... I chose a completely different colour scheme from the rest of the house, which is very light and bright, becuase I wanted a "classic" library feel... something oxford/indiana jones like. Somewhere all my odd bits and pieces would look at home. Like my amazing dragon statues my granny made for me... and my fossils that I have collected all over.. basically a room where I could read, work and draw my fantasy stuff.... alittle more "witchy" than the rest of teh house...
Both the hallway and the library will be started in the early spring... I'll paint the library first, and then dad will make shelves when it gets warmer outside...
Then there is the outside of my house. Which is now red. There will be many years before I need to paint it again... but once I do it will be old white/gray and I think I will purchase some decor so it looks more like a small farmhouse... And I want... a teal door!!! And teal accents on my porch... teal and mossy stuff :) Yepp... but this of course is far into the future... One thing is abit nearer though... dad has said he will build me a porch swing. I always wanted one... and it will be... teal of course :)
I bought this online. Will pick it up next week. It will be painted white (of course) and then it shall be in my diningroom :) It is perfect, and it was cheap.. allthough rather far away (2 hour drive each way) my sweet sweet friend Ole said he would drive me... And thats good, as my hand had surgery on tuesday and is of no use at the moment... and also, this sweet friend of mine, crashed my car into someone's rear on our way from the hospital.. so now I have no car... great! haha...poor ole... I cant help feeling alittle sorry for him...
Either way... just some ramblings from me... I didnt want to forget any ideas, so I rambled them down here.... and yes... my layout/name keeps changing.,... I am sure I will settle on something soon... errrh
A little box of joy came to me in the mail today!!! Hurray... my little verdigris sparrows.... I love them, they are even more brilliant in reality than on pictures... I couldnt wait so I used ma's dining room for photographing them... They look great there too, but I just know they will look even more fantastic in *my* dining room... *snigger*
Hmmm... the light was a bit crap, but oh well.... I am no magician with the camera....
At work today I finally got my hands on this book. It's originally from New Zeland, but the author was Swedish... it's been out in Norwegian for a long time but I wanted, as usual, to read it in it's original language... But it was sold out by the publishers... finally though, it arrived... and I cant wait to sit myself down with a large cup of tea and just enjoy this book!
And in my email I received this fun little questionare... I guess I was supposed to send it out, but I'm just gonna let anyone who wants to grab it and fill it in :)
