Tying up Loose Ends

A couple of readers have been at my house recently, and when they walked in the front door and saw a giant moroccan motif printed on burlap hanging by the stairs, they said "oh you DID get this."

Makes me realize I occasionally forget to follow up on these things.

Here's said artwork, which I got for $10 through this local auction site, which I wrote about here.



I'm not sure it's staying in the entry, so it's hanging a bit low to utilize an existing nail hole.  Love it with the entry rug, but might be a little dark overall.  I also love the scale of it, especially as seen from the top of the stairs.




We'll see.

I also chose a color for the girls room.  One step more coral than any of the ones I was originally contemplating.  That's right: after staring at paint swatches on the wall for a couple of days, I went to Sherwin Williams and bought a new color, sight unseen.


This scan definitely bumps up the saturation, but pretty, no?  We'll see how it all works out.  It's called "angelic" which is sort of ironic for the room where the most mischief is made.


Taking tomorrow off from this here blog.  Happy Easter!
