Molding in the living room
Crown molding went up and company came in town right after and then we went to Disneyland and I got back and here are some photos. PHEW! Between all this, I decided to get new peach pillow covers from Caitlin Wilson Design, and swap out the Mario Buatta inspired bows over the mantel from a dark blue to a brighter blue silk I bought a yard from Etsy.
My favorite thing about the dentil molding is that it brings out the color of our walls. I used to think Alabaster by Sherwin-Williams was just too white and flat for us, and now the crown molding makes the walls look creamer. The ceiling is also Alabaster.
If I were to choose a white paint again though, I would go creamier.
Our south facing garden room is Origami White and I like it. The rest of our entire house is Alabaster because it doesn’t get much light and faces North so I thought Alabaster would brighten it up. It does, but I’d still go creamier warm tone less bright white — just incase you are picking a white color for your walls.
I also swapped the pillows from my office couch (though the glass doors) with the couch pillows because I felt like the room was too blue and too flat. The same monochromatic tones doesn’t work for my personality or how it makes me feel. I need more color! So consider this a start of adding more color to the living room. I think I need to add more green and yellow. I want it to have the same cozy colorful vibe as the garden room since it is the first room you walk into and trust me I did some camera tricks and it doesn’t look as bright when you walk in. I do love this room lit at night though. I might need to take pictures of it at night for you. My friend Sommer says she loves our home most at night, and I do too!
I just wanted to show off the living room molding right now.
