should I bake him a cake? Do you think he'll be surprised when I hug him and weep?
For those who don't understand my reaction, I live in a house I have owned nearly 4 years. It was a 50's bungalow, renovated inside and out about '77 by an owner who was an architect and it has great 1970's "contemporary" features, including some cedar beams, a cedar trimmed skylight and lots of angled walls. Then, someone tried to turn it into a 1980's house -painted the interior a pale grey and installed modern grey cabinetry in the kitchen. To save my own life I painted 2 kitchen walls Pumpkin to warm the grey.
The painter will paint the whole interior a slightly warm off-white and repaint my orange walls a milk chocolate. If only I had a digital camera I could get your help deciding about having him do an accent wall of the milk chocolate in my living room.
You all may be able to help with this: the trim is all figured oak, a la 1984. I am trying to decide if I should leave it, paint it to match the walls, or to invest in trim that looks like the mahogeny used in the 1970s.
I am so excited.
