The Cross House
In 2017, I painted the porch ceiling of the 1894 Cross House.
And the color choice was…unexpected.
And this is how things have been since.
But…but…Ross wasn’t entirely satisfied. And, as y’all know by now, that can lead to, ah, changes.
I loved how unexpected the color was. It was a shock after viewing the soooooo very tasteful exterior. Oh! Oh! It gave the house a jolt, and make it feel fresh.
But it was not, well, 100% the perfect color.
A while back I had Sherwin-Williams color match the pinky sample from the 1892 paint catalog, and painted a bit on.
Oh dear. It just wasn’t right.
And so things, again, remained unchanged.
Today however (scroll down)…
What is motivating this is the ceiling of the porte-cochère which can only be reached via scaffolding, and which will get painted later this year. I sooooooo only want to paint it once.
