Sorry that there is no “before” picture.
My daughter and son-in-law had been using this room but just bought a house so it has been empty for, oh, a day :)
I painted it my new favourite colour (part of my living room is this colour already) – the green is called “Lush”.
The plan was for this room to be our bedroom but my bed is too large. So I had to rethink my plans. I inherited this gorgeous antique set of furniture and thought I’d put the rocking chair in the room while I decided what I was going to do.
Well, the rocker came in and then the chair came in.. and then the settee came in and then the table. It sure looked like it belonged.
While enjoying the furniture I thought I’d play a little fiddle in the new green room. And the fiddle stayed and so up came Rick’s banjo .. and then the drums and the didgeridoos. And there you have – the unplanned formation of a music room!
Finishing touch was putting the photos on the wall. The one on the right is of my great-grandfather, my grandfather, my uncle, my great-great-grandmother and my great-great-great-grandmother.
Now, one last thing to do: put something on the wall above the rocker. What will look good there? It can’t be too big or the room shrinks. It can’t be too small or it disappears. It should probably be antiquee … what to do, what to do?
My style is of the “clutter” variety but I’m trying really hard to keep this room simple so I can enjoy the colour of the walls. So far, I think I’m doing well.
