AND we're BACK!

a lot has happened since the last post, including a bunch of moves: 
pittsburgh>mercersburg>argentina/chile>baltimore>boulder, all within 7 months.


while it was all crazy and includes an interesting story or two, we'll save those for another time; this is a design blog, and it's time to get back to design!

we've finally arrived in Boulder, Colorado and plan to settled in for a while, which means: projects time!

here's a sneak peak of what I have in mind

we've moved into a great apartment with a small windowless kitchen, like in the photo above, and I'm thinking that the blank white end wall could use something... chalkboard paint!

there's a desk that was left on the balcony, and it's nothing to look at right now... 4 paint samples from Behr are just begging to be painted ombre-style onto the ugly duckling.  I'm planning to leave the top natural, but do I paint the lower part in separated chevron style, try to blend it horizontally, separated horizontal stripes, blended chevron... what to do, what to doooo?

well one thing is for sure, besides the chalkboard kitchen wall: the burnt rusty orange-ish bathroom is becoming a serene light grey!

"burnished metal," again by Behr  :)
