Painting, Part II

Regard the beauty of my home office:



Once again, it's hard to capture this color well on film. It's a very bright, grassy green that's neither as chartreuse-y as the first photo nor as sage-y as the second one; it looks as though it belongs in a sun-flooded room in someone's country home on a breezy summer day.

I'm already 100% more inclined to spend time in this room.

Are those built-in bookshelves? So jealous! Love the color, too. You have excellent taste. :)

I love that green! It looks fabulous. I'm jealous out here in the land of beige walls and no built-ins.

That is *great*! I love the colour. And am particularly struck by how the old-fashioned desk lamp works with the green of the walls. Well painted!

You get to have summer all year long now! What a great color!

I'll come visit, too!

Thanks! And yes, PhD Me: it is a built-in bookcase (singular). I wish there were more than one, or that there were room for other (non-built-in) ones in the room, but it's a fairly small space and the most likely wall has a huge radiator along it. Still, I'm delighted with what I've got.

Pretty, pretty! I'm jealous!

Lovely! God, you're making me want to re-decorate. Green's such a lovely colour, be really nice in my room.... hmm, you've got me thinking...

I LOVE green rooms! ST's bedroom used to be green and it was always my favorite place to be when the sunlight flooded the room. Great, great choice!

Ooh, lovely! And your desk between those windows; oh, you're going to get so much fabulous work done in that room, I just know it!

beautiful! That was exactly the color I had originally envisioned for Squirt's room but we had such a hard time actually finding it. (In the end marielle helped us choose a lovely creamsicle-peachy color instead.)

so nice to envision you in your new digs...
