Wet Paint!

We finally got around to painting the living room. I have been inspired, of late, by simple, monochromatic colour schemes. A chance peek inside a home that hosted a garage sale this past summer as well as a feature in this months Canadian House and Home mag. showcasing artisan Heather Shaw's "serene white palette" sparked my (our) need to change things up....again.

We chose "Coconut White" which suggests sunny days spent at a beach in some far off tropical locale. It will definitely brighten the space on these wet, West Coast days.

Of course, Quinn had to help. He proudly donned his "painting" clothes and got busy with his corner of the room. He really enjoyed himself and left little white footy prints throughout the hardwood (it's latex...and washes out).
