FOLLOW YOUR INSTINCT....
February 2008 we downsized to a much older, smaller house. I felt a connection to the new house the second I put my foot on the vestibule floor. I cannot describe how or why I felt the way I did...I just did. It was the right size, the perfect location and it was in the price range we sought. There were also some lovely elements to the house, the original hardwood floors, all the original doors and trim and the original plaster walls and ceilings. It should be noted that the original bedroom trim and the doors on the inside of the bedrooms, were already painted white, which was fine with me. I immediately began to visualize where all of our stuff would go. The house needed plenty of work. A two storey addition was required which would allow us to enlarge the kitchen and add a master bathroom upstairs. We hired our contractor and had plans drawn up for the reno.
Flash forward to June 2008. The kitchen was designed, new windows for every room and trim to historically match the profile of the original had been orderd for the addition. All of the doors and trim in the addition would be painted white. I began in earnest to start tackling every design and decorative decison that had to be made. I had determined that my indecision would not be the cause of delayng the project. And it never was. Budgets and timelines are always a factor.
|This is the fabric I chose as the inspiration for every other fabric and colour choice.
It went beautifully with the original reddish brown stained doors and trim.
