Blue Is the Color…

…of the ceiling and walls in the stairwell. Chris is back at work after a well deserved rest, and he tried out our very light blue color, the final one paint at the Pope house. It’s called Dreamstress. He says, “I don’t know about no dream, but it caused me plenty of stress.”

Still a bit wet, but here’s the ceiling against the terra-cotta walls.

It’s a very subtle color, for sure. In some lights it looks gray, and in some it looks white. It’s just what I wanted. He started with the stairwell, where the ceiling and the former exterior wall got done. I think the color will look even better once the window trim is all installed and painted our creamy white.

Stairway wall blends together now that it’s all one color.

The former exterior wall in my office bathroom is also blue, which helps tone down the tomato red and shiny tile.

Original brick wall and new red wall.

By the way, before he had to go do caregiver duty, Easton almost finished the vinyl floors. It’s looking good!

This view looks almost done!

We have more trim to do, the ceilings in the main office and my office, the cabinets for the break room area, the tin accent walls, the lighting, and just a few more tidbits. Yay!

Contrasted with the original window trim, it looks more blue.
