Here we are, blue. My boy has the annoying kind of fever this morning: just high enough to keep him home from preschool but not high enough to make him feel like, say, resting on the couch all day. Today promises to be long, although the upside is that we all have a good excuse to still be in our pajamas.
The new paint is not exactly the restful watery wash of color I was envisioning, more like Tiffany Box Blue (it is historical fact that I have a hard time picking blue paint), but I'm just going with it because this is not such a bad paint mistake & also it's in the back hallway which is: 1. full of old, west-facing, single-paned windows & becomes unbearably hot in the summer, & 2. exactly the kind of pass-through space where I love to use big color. I have this idea that making the hallway the color you'd paint the bottom of a swimming pool will trick us all into thinking it's actually cooler back there than it really is; we'll see. I think it's going to look great once I get the thousand miles of trim painted, although, really, just getting rid of the tan trim would be a source of joy in itself, no matter what color I was using.
