The crown molding along ceiling and the long curtains makes the room look a bit more dramatic. French door knobs and push button light switches are a few little touches that add to the Parisian feel.
It has turned into a very comfy space. Everything has a home so we keep clutter to a minimum. A must when living in 468 square feet.
Notice the details to add interest under the window. I used picture frames and painted the area with semi-gloss Dover White by Sherwin Williams.
The walls are painted flat Netsuke by Sherwin Williams.
The living-dining area of apartment was painted mint green that reminded me of “hospital” green.
I thought I would post one of my favorite Zelda Fitzgerald quotes. It seems befitting since she was always in competition with Scott and I posted his earlier.
“I don’t want to live. I want to love first, and live incidentally.” ~ Zelda Fitzgerald
Fascinating man because of the life he led and the woman he married. A famous couple’s life helps us realize what the jazz era was all about. Their love story goes from a fairy tale to tragedy with lots of crazy living in between.
Quote- “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.”
~F. SCOTT FITZGERALD, “The Crack Up”
Scott began to write The Crack-Up essays while staying at the Skyland Hotel in Hendersonville, NC November to December 1935.
Dreaming of island life.
Oak Island is so photogenic. I don’t think we have one bad picture from this place.
This is after fresh paint. The color is Comfort Gray by Sherwin Williams.
This is the before paint color. Blonde by Sherwin Williams.
You can have inexpensive crown molding by using the cheapo small molding that is normally in a room already. Just come down several inches and put up another piece of cheap trim. Then paint in a creamy or bright white depending on your taste. We used Dover White by Sherwin Williams. It is a great white that goes with anything.
Our bedroom was Blonde by Sherwin Williams. I need a more calming look in the bedroom so I painted it Comfort Gray by Sherwin Williams. We also added crown molding.
