A New Sewing Room
In July I wrote of carpet being replaced in my house. The new carpet is wonderful, thick and luxurious. A side note to new carpet is the blemishes of the house showed up. My sewing room was still painted contractor’s beige. We have lived in the house for 13 years. Our thought was what better time to paint than now with everything out of the room. I thought a light yellow would be cheerful. Yellow is not my color but I can appreciate it. I followed all the rules of tints, shades, and pure color. Yellows with orange or green casts to them, and I made my choice carefully. Be aware that paint may change color when placed on top of other colors, even beige. Fortunately I had only painted one wall before I decided this would not do. We covered it with “Kills” and decided to change the color choice to the light blue found in many of the rooms of the house already. I am pleased with the look. I am a blue color person.
