I'm thinking of...portières

It is getting so cold out here in Canada!

The whippet pup Tallulah is regularly wearing her sweater to lazy around the house. I've even ordered her 2 pairs of flannel jammez. I can not believe I just told you that.

Once it starts to get cold out and the days get shorter I go in to nesting mode. To that end I've been busy painting the walls running east/west on the main floor of the house in Farrow & Balls Railings and the north/south walls in F&B's Blackening. It's dramatic and very cozy! Which got me to thinking about how much I hate the winter cold getting in to the house when the kids go in and out. 

So for the past month I've been thinking I want to put up a set of portières to close off the entrance.

 Here's a sneak peak at the living room:

last month

in progress - wall colour: F&B Railings




  1. I love the new wall colour! the sofa really pops against it and Tallulah is one lucky pup! :)

  2. Thank you Lisa. We would only spend mornings in the living room because it is nice and bright but evenings it was never used...until I did the first wall in Railings. Now it is cozy in the evening and still supper sunny in the morning.


  3. Hello and thanks so much for stopping by La Lamp Shade today!

    P.S. I think I'm in love with your pup.

  4. That color is gorgeous! Good choice.

  5. Nice choice of color...

    Good luck with your renovation... which is often stressful but full of fun and excitement too.

  6. That is a pretty fab colour - reminds me of the colour that Nate Berkus used in the library that was featured in Elle Decor (for producers of Oprah) Its very dramatic, but very warm...



Yay, I love to hear what's on your mind!
