oh hale yes

Since the cabinets will be done today (hot dog!), I am shifting my attention to the next project on our list: the dining room.

So the wall to the right of the doorframe (in photo below) is coming down.   The room is used for a dining room 10% of the time – its primary use is a pass-through to the kitchen/fancy foyer we never needed.    The table in this poorly lit photo (thanks, suburban morning dew) is pushed into the alcove of the bay window – that’s where I think it will stay. 

So the wall comes down either this week or early next (!!!), which means I get to pick a wall color.

I am a huge fan of barely-there wall colors, especially in pass-through spaces. But this room is in the middle of a very white, neutral house. Almost every wall in our house is either white shiplap or cream.

So (deep breath) I am saying OH HALE YES  to this challenge. I introduce you to the PURE MAGIC that is Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy.      This was Christopher’s vote all along – he asked me to make it look like the Titanic (!!!). The plan is to display his mama’s gold china on the walls (maybe 75% of the reason I chose the color – navy + gold = heaven), so I think we will end up with a cozy, classic, maybe strangely formal space in the middle of our not-so-formal house. 

So if you want to come over for some brandy and mature adult conversation, we’ll meet you in the dining room.

Happy Tuesday! Xo
