The Cross House
The room will mostly be bookshelves from floor to ceiling, so the color will be confined, in the main, to the ceiling and around the windows.
I have been pondering/lusting blue. Tiffany Blue, to be specific. But is this the mosteverfabulous shade of blue for the library?
The zillion books on the shelves will of course have spines in every color, so the room could be painted any color, save for my entrenched/annoying blue fixation. One important consideration however is the stained-glass windows. I do want the blue to complement the glass.
In my previous posts, the images show a bit of one window, and with the old old old dark dark dark stain on the trim:
When I look at the above image, my great love affair with Tiffany sorta peters out.
However, the DARK wood trim will not look like this when the original finish is restored.
It has taken awhile, but I now offer for your consideration the same window with the — drum roll, please —original faux painted finish revealed. Whoee!
You can appreciate how much lighter the trim is. Thanks Grace!!!!!!!
I do not know how to photoshop but it seems that a lot of people do. So, I was crossing my fingers that some readers might be willing to forward their photoshopped suggestions.
I will post all the images received.
NOTE: I am looking for a strong, intense color. Nothing safe. Nothing demure. The Cross House can handle it.
NOTE: I will be buying the paint from Sherwin-Williams.
