Like Wanda, I have also been working on updating my den / home office. Most people would say that there wasn’t anything wrong with this room to begin with. But I was a little tired of it and decided I wanted to add a more elegant look to the room.
When I came across Farrow and Ball’s “Brinjal”, I knew I had found my paint color! I also knew that I wanted to add some architectural interest to the room. So before I started painting, I thought long and hard on how to make that happen.
Then I saw this picture on Houzz.com, and I knew I had found the answer. Not only was it complimentary to the craftsmen style of the cupboard doors in the room, I loved the board and batten walls.
And the design on the ceiling fit right in with my theory that ceiling surfaces should not be ignored.
By adding moulding to the walls and the ceiling, I would definitely put some architectural interest into a very plain nondescript room. Thus my winter project was born and I could hardly wait to get started.
