The Cross House
I have been pondering paint colors.
My house was built in 1894, and we think of Victorian-era houses as being very dark.
We assume this because we only have black/white images of the era. If color images existed I suspect we would be shocked at how colorful many Victorian-era homes actually were.
We long assumed the same about Colonial-era houses. But recent discoveries have confirmed that those crazy Colonial kids also loved intense, rich colors.
At the Cross House, I am am hoping to paint two rooms next month: the living room and library.
The library will, appropriately, be filled with shelves and books. So, you will not see much of the walls, although the ceiling will be prominent.
I was thinking of Tiffany Blue, which will also complement the colors in the three stained-glass windows.
For the living room?
What do you think?
