i found myself coming back to benjamin moore white dove, the same color we used at our old house, tried and true. i love how white/ivory walls can instantly make a room feel more fresh and modern.
about that light fixture, i have received a surprising amount of compliments on it in which my response is, "would you like it? it's all yours." it's an arts and crafts style fixture. perfect for a 1920s bungalow. not so perfect for a 1960s ranch.
plus, it's rather clunky, don't you think?
our new west elm fixture arrived weeks ago and i cannot wait to get it installed. i think it will pull the room together nicely.
the real highlight of this room are the floor to ceiling windows. the existing faux wood blinds didn't do them any justice. in fact, i felt like they covered the windows, even while tilted open. the windows are supposed to be the feature, not the blinds.
i had to sell rob on the curtains and convince him just to try them out. we could always return them if we weren't in agreement. so up they went and i anxiously awaited his reaction.
