Not sure if anyone has noticed, but my last 5 posts have begun with the letter “s”. If you don’t believe me look at the right sidebar at my recent posts. I assure you this was not on purpose, but I found it interesting enough to share. 🙂
I am struggling in the living room (of the dollhouse — no one call EMS!!). I am not loving the colours. I am finding it too dark. But the idea of changing up the wallpaper again…is not fun. That would make it the FIFTH time I changed the colour in this room! (Once was blue, then cream, dark green paper, then painted white, then the current brown paper….please no not again…o_O). Before I get too crazy and start ripping or painting anything, I thought I would show you what my other options could be…perhaps you have a little input?
So, here is the room right now. Nice and brown…and cream..
It’s too brown (dark) and cream (light) for me… I considered changing the trim (which is clearly missing in this photo) to a more warm white (as it reads on the bottle) but that looked horrible and I’ve already covered it up.. Plus, shouldn’t trim be consistent throughout a house? are there houses with different coloured trims in different rooms I should probably do some more research….the bedroom has cream, and I’m pretty sure that the kitchen and dining room will as well, as the wainscoting is currently cream…so warm white would probably throw my OCD off completely..
Anyhoo, back to the living room, especially the door, and the cream entertainment unit…then the cream trim, just feel too light in contrast with the dark brown paper. I wamted a cozy living room, but without a fireplace glow, this place just seems to dark?…and yet light? Are you with me here? lol
Other options I am considering are to replace (again) the wallpaper — which I would really like to avoid if I can.. or paint the unit in a different colour. I chose to go with the latter first to see what it would do for me..
…verdict is, not much. I actually hate it and almost feel as I ruined it.
So…I guess I have to change the stinking wallpaper…again. As always, it seems worth it to me, since I don’t want to not like my own dolhouse. Also, I wanted to replace the window/door trim anyways, as the original from the kit is broken from me chaning my mind too much! Figures…lol. I’m going to have to change the background to the entertainment unit as well. So, I’m almost starting over.
What else is new?! Just another day in the life of Rebecca! Can never make up my mind! I have many other projects on my list too, and I’d really like to finish this one so I can get started with them 🙂
Updates to come!
