I showed you this light a few weeks ago, but didn't really talk about other changes to the room:
The room is becoming an office. So, this weekend I painted the ceiling black!!! And I *love* it. It definitely darkened the room a bit, but it gets a lot of light and has a ginormous chandelier, so that's ok. Here is another view:
And now to explain -- the ottomans under the desk are getting new fabric. Probably hot pink. And the pillows (stored under the table for now) that look like they clash in this photos don't in real life. They are a lighter gray than the rug, but NOT clashing (I think the colors get messed up a little because I have to lift the shadows in some photos, especially of this room). The little console will be gone, because.....
This is what will be in front of the desk, with the gray pillows on it, and a blanket of course:
And here is the side wall - I love how the mirrors reflect the chandelier:
While I had the black paint out for the ceiling, I painted my dining room black, too. You may recall, it used to be black. But then when we darkened the floors, the black seemed too dark, so I went to gray. Well, I added some lights in the ceiling so that I could go back to black. I'm still working on it (lampshades are getting monograms again, need some color on the table, etc.), but here it is for now:
Here it was in gray - I liked it, but like the black better:
And one last shot of the new black:
So I hope you like the changes. Thanks for reading!
