“A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy.”
Well, I promised to blog about how the new partition wall was coming along today, so here’s a post about where we’re at!
First, here’s the inspiration photo-drawing I put together in Photoshop in December:
And next- we’ve got bones!
(And a work in progress living room!)
The framework went up on Tuesday afternoon, and man did it instantly change the feel of the place!
It’s going to be SO much easier to decorate the planked wall above the sofa on the right now that it’s sectioned off more evenly, and I am SO inspired to plank the wall on the left (in May) now that the room is going more symmetrical, too.
I still haven’t created or found a tall painting to mount onto the front of those old shutter doors behind the sofa on the left (pink and white dining chairs still aren’t reupholstered either), but I am LOVING the decorating opportunities the new wall has created behind our armchairs and on the side that faces the dining room.
Oh, and I like that the refrigerator is going to be blocked by that one chunk of wall when it gets planked (in March/April), too. My goal was to create more of a “den” feel, and to get the kitchen out of our living room without totally separating the two rooms. Mission accomplished so far! 😀
