I know that I’m approaching my second anniversary of living in Chicago this week because I hear the Chicago Air and Water Show jets buzzing around Lincoln Park. My first day in Chicago happened to fall on the same weekend as the 2007 show.
New Apartment Colors
Today I’m debating about paint color for the new apartment. Erwin and I checked out the space one more time this weekend and the leasing agent mentioned we might be allowed to supply paint color for the painters. I am very excited about this possibility.
Below are the ideas I have at the moment, though none are set in stone. What do you think? Any other ideas?
The one major hang up I have about the living room/kitchen is matching the granite to the wall color. I am not crazy over the khaki/black/brown tones as wall color. And I won’t be able to see the granite to compare it to paint chips before buying the paint. So this one is going to have to be a hail Mary. Unless of course, I decide to stick with plain old white. Which I could do, I just feel like it won’t feel as warm or lived in. Thoughts?
The studio is going to be warmer and cheerful, I want it to have a different vibe from the rest of the apartment so I don’t feel like I’m always working, eating, and sleeping in the same space. I also have big plans for a gold and white chevron project.
This icy blue is my favorite color right now, I have linens this color and I think it would be perfect on the walls. Soothing and subtle.
